June is the end of our Lions year and we hold our annual fun meeting to “change our officers” for the coming year.
To enable us to compile our Lions Telephone Directory for next year, please make sure you return the completed slip inserted in your new Directory, into the Helensville Library.
More bad weather is forecast for the colder months to come, so keep your emergency kit well supplied. Keep well and warm.
Autumn Book Fair 2018
The Autumn Book Fair, held last weekend, raised $8,958 an increase on last year, and an excellent result. We hope that our customers are pleased with their purchases and have many hours of enjoyable reading ahead.
We would like to thank all those who donated books, without you there would be no Book Fair.
The Club would also like to thank the wider Helensville community, putting together a book fair is a team effort and we would not be able to cope without the assistance we receive from our community. We especially appreciated the help we received from the students of Kaipara College, whose energy was contagious, the members of the Helensville Tennis Club who’s fitness level far exceeded ours, South Kaipara Youth who assisted in packing up and cleaning and most importantly the partners, friends and relatives of Club members who were present throughout the weekend. We also wish to thank members of the Rodney Local Board for their help, Copy & Print for letting us use their shop as a drop off point and the Kaipara Men’s Trust for providing us with storage.
All the funds raised go into the Lions Club of Helensville Charitable Trust Account and will be used in our community to assist those members or organisations in need of support, as well as into community projects such as the Riverside Walkway and exercise stations on the presently under construction Fitness Track around Rautawhiri Park.
The books left over are re-sorted with damaged or unsaleable books going to the Helensville Recycle Centre. Other books are sold at the Lions book stall at the Kaukapakapa Market, which is held on the third Sunday of each month, and at other events run by the Lions Club of Helensville throughout the year.
The next Book Fair is our Christmas Book Fair, which will be held on the last weekend of November, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th 2018,in the Helensville War Memorial Hall.As a service to the community the Helensville Lions will accept books throughout the year. Small amounts can be left at Copy & Print, Commercial Road, Helensville, otherwise contact Chris at 420 8527 or any other member of the Lions Club of Helensville.
