The Lions Roar

A busy time ahead for Helensville Lions; our Giant Book Fair November 28/29th and our Christmas Festival, December 5th, which we are holding in lieu of the Christmas Parade which has been cancelled this year.
Look out for the posters detailing both of these events.
The Lions Roar, why, “Because of our Pride”
Pride as in a group and pride as in what we have been able to achieve for our community. Over the past 56 years the Lions Club of Helensville has been able to assist a large number of different groups and individuals to achieve their goals.
Let’s look around Helensville – the playground behind the Hall, St John Ambulance Station, Fire Brigade equipment, seats on Commercial Road, planter boxes in the town centre. More recently the extended walkway from Mill Road to the area between the Old Post Office and Old BNZ. We assisted in the funding for the development of Rautawhiri Park, the Tennis Club pavilion and the recently completed Exercise Trail.
We have provided funding for all our schools (Pre School to Kaipara College) to assist their pupils to better their educational, sporting and cultural opportunities. We provided a walker for a local lad who had cerebral palsy, enabling him to be mobile.
Through our activities we have given pleasure to folk of all ages, Book Fairs, Helensville’s Christmas Festival, also the Children’s Colouring Competition through the schools and providing the canteen at the Helensville A&P Show.
Now we are looking for help. We need to increase our numbers to enable us to continue our efforts. Through joining our club, you will meet new folk and form relationships with people of all ages, nationalities and occupations. Our organisation is worldwide with an incredible bank of contacts and associates. We meet twice monthly in the pavilion at Rautawhiri Park, these meetings are usually dinner meetings, allowing for fellowship and socialising.
Your depth of involvement is your choice. If becoming a full member is not a reality, why not join our new group “Friends of Lions”? This group of community minded folk assist us with our activities and enjoy our company, there is no financial obligation for Friends.
Which ever way you choose you will always be made most welcome. To find out more about us please contact one of the following:
