The Lions Club of Maitland

District 201N3, New South Wales, Australia


Get the latest on what Lions are doing - Locally and Nationally.

Hello again good people ... April’s here and the hot days (we hope) are on their way out. Add to that the finish of daylight saving and things are looking good!

Happily, March has been a quiet month, apart from the dog and trot gates, so not a lot to report really. Members who headed off to Sandbar for an R & R weekend had mixed weather which was we are told ‘mostly fine’ with fish in abundance ... yes, true ‘fisher-people-tales’ with good catches of Flathead and a ‘rare’ Bream which Brian relished (thanks to Trevor)!

The swearing in of our latest new member Bernadette Williams at our last meeting was well supported and welcome Bernadette, it’s great to have you with us and we look forward to your continued support through happy days.

Maitland’s annual Steamfest weekend is upon us again 14th 15th April. Please put your hand up to assist, as it gives us quite a high profile.

Our meeting this coming Monday 9th April will be a Board Meeting only, but come along, listen to the discussion and ask any questions you may have. Obviously only the board has voting rights, but all members are welcome to attend and to enjoy a relaxed dinner. afterwards at the Club.

We are always looking for ‘speakers with a difference’ and at our meeting on 23rd April, our speaker will be a lady from Tocal College who is known for causing a huge ‘buzz’ wherever she goes. There will even be a few gardening hints too, so come along and be prepared for a really sweet time. It will be a great night and I look forward to seeing you there.

Then our first Board meeting on May 14th, will be followed by a full dinner meeting so we can discuss arrangements for the Caravan and Camping show. This is a huge event and filling the agenda is a major task so please, note it in your diary to show your support by coming to this meeting, share your thoughts and ideas but most importantly, put your hand up for a slot on the roster.

    Our new BBQ trailer is ready and waiting to be used for events as required.
    A wonderful project, a long time in the designing and building, but worth it.
    Hopefully it will be a great asset to our Club and to our city of Maitland to be able to help out whenever a BBQ is required.......
