Kadina Lions Club - Serving the Community of Kadina
Lions is a community service organisation with its members giving back to the community, assisting where they can. We are always looking for ideas on what the community believe is needed to improve life in KADINA. With ordinary people doing extraordinary things - supporting the community.
Lions have particularly enjoyed supporting the Wallaroo Mines School and assisting students achieve their goals. Selling our Christmas cakes and Puddings is one way we raise funds.

Members attend the Annual District Convention
President Carol and John attended the annual convention in Port Augusta recently. Carol spent most of the weekend volunteering on the Lions Skin Cancer screening van but still managed to get to many of the convention sessions. Conventions always fun catching up with old friends and making new ones listening to presentations on exciting Lions projects and the always wonderful and inspiring Youth of the Year district finals.

Some interesting Lions information:
(i) Lions International has consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, one of the main bodies of the United Nations which is concerned primarily with advancing the welfare of all human beings. The international president annually appoints representatives to ECOSOC, WHO, UNICEF and UNESCO. The association also has a relationship with FAO. Lions Day with the United Nations is held in late February or early March each year.
(ii) Lions have raised more than US$415 million since 1990 to support the SightFirst program, which has saved the eyesight of millions of people worldwide.
(iii) The Lions Hearing Dog Centre in Adelaide celebrated its 30th Anniversary recently with the announcement that their 500th hearing dog Julia is soon due to go to a new owner in Victoria. Each dog costs some $30,000 to train - that's a whopping fifteen million dollar investment overall or some $500,000 per year.
Becoming a Lion
Lions club members are men and women who strive to make a difference in their local community as well as in communities worldwide. Their volunteer efforts go beyond the support of vision care, to addressing unmet health and education needs worldwide.
