The club has been led over many years by some very hard working and dedicated Presidents.

Lions Year 2010-2011 saw our club led by President Helen Proud. She promised us a year to remember under her unique style. Helen did not let us down, she did a wonderful job. The club under Helen raised in excess of $22,000 which was disbursed back into the Local Community and various Lions Projects. These included the Life Saving Club, SES, Beyond Blue, Latitude - For the Homeless. 

President for the Lions year 2011/2012 is Kerry Cook. We congratulate her on this appointment and the appointment of her very versatile Board of Directors. This promises to be another fine year for our proud club.

Kerry's theme for this year is "Volunteering - The Heart of the Community"
