LIONS CENTENARY PARK FORMALLY OPENED on 5th September 2018
Lions Clubs internationally celebrated 100 years of Lionism during the year 2017-18 and the Woolgoolga Club worked in conjunction with Coffs Harbour City Council to upgrade and refurbish the Park (Formerly APEX Park ) and the facilities as a Lion’s Centennial project.
The project was completed early in 2018 by Coffs Harbour City Council and contractors, with funding provided by the Coffs Harbour City Council, Lions Club of Woolgoolga and a generous NSW State Government grant. As Lions we are proud of the new facilities at the park and we want to share this achievement with our community and friends.
Woopi Lions Turn 40.
In November 2016 The Woolgoolga Lions Club celebrated its 40th birthday and also conducted its annual Christmas party.
Over the past 20 years the Woolgoolga Lions Club has donated over $A1.3m towards local, regional, state, national and international activities.
The bulk of this income is earned from the operation of the local waste transfer station on behalf of the Coffs Harbour City Council.
This operation is conducted each weekend with the assistance of the members and also 25 community volunteers whom assist us with each providing 4 hours per month. The annual Christmas party is a way a thanking the volunteers for their on-going assistance throughout the year.
The Woolgoolga Lions Club conducts a charity board on each Saturday of each month. The monies raised are donated to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
Recently the Woopi Lions has completed the refurbishment of the local scout hall, contributed a trike to a child whom suffers from muscular dystrophy, a bar code reader for a blind community member, a paediatric cot and monitor for the children’s ward of the Coffs Hospital at the local level.
State and nationally the Club continues to contribute to Lions International various cancer, diabetes and sight programmes and internationally has an on-going contribution to “one shot- one life” measles eradication project.
At the recent BBq we were fortunate to recieve the assistance from a member of the Australian Motorhomes Lions Club.
