World Famous Waitomo Caves and The Rugged Taranaki Coast

 

PIOPIO LIONS CLUB

The Club recently had its Change of Officers at a lunch at the Panorama in Te Kuiti. Our new President is Paul Jones who we are sure will be ably supported by his wife Marie.

A big thank you to Colin Gray, our outgoing President who did two years as President as a result of Covid. Thanks to Liz for her support.

In June we took our caravan to the Fieldays and had four local community groups assist us. Thanks to them all, they helped make it a very successful event and good fun at the same time. As a result we were able to donate $1500.00 to each of these groups.

We took our caravan to the King Country Club Rugby final held at the Piopio domain, between Piopio and Taumarunui and had the parents of local children who are attending the Aims Games help us. This was also a very successful day and we were able to donate $2000.00 to assist these families. 27 kids are going at a cost of $400 each. It is really great to be able to contribute to an organisation that has so much parental support. We had plenty of helpers.

Out next big event is Paddys Market in early October. So keep this in mind if you have anything you can donate for us to auction.

Our club is always looking for new members so if you think Lions is something you could be part of, please contact one of our members.
