Eight-five Lions members attended, as Wamuran, Morayfield, Kilcoy, Sandstone Point, Deception Bay, Pine Rivers and Redcliffe were among the clubs that were represented.

Guests included Mark Ryan MP, Ali King MP, Andrew Powell MP, and Councillor Brooke Savige.

Moves to establish the Lions Club of Caboolture North began in December 2022, with the new Lions Club of Caboolture North having 20 members so far.

Secretary Roz Bierton said teamwork, friendship, kindness, and a love of volunteering in the community were key aspects for the club to materialise.

“We are relieved that it has all come together, as teamwork is the key to a great community group,” Roz said.

Current activities for the club include running the gates and canteen at Caboolture Snakes rugby league home matches, providing food for the homeless, and helping the Caboolture Neighbourhood Centre with warm clothing, blankets and pillows.

The secretary also said there was a determination to help those in need. “Many members of our community are homeless at no fault of their own,” Roz said.

“Please let’s make it a better place and help someone out with maybe a hot coffee/chocolate/tea or even a muff in, this doesn’t have to cost you much.”

Roz also recommended supplying items which people no longer used, such as beanies or gloves.

Mr Ryan said it was really exciting to see a new branch opening in the region, expanding the “great work of this wonderful organisation”.
