More prospective members are welcome, as meetings are held in the Gamgee meeting rooms at the Caboolture Showgrounds every second Wednesday from 6pm to 7pm.

Also this Saturday (July 8), Caboolture North and Wamuran Lions members will run a community barbecue from 8am to 4pm at Bunnings at the Big Fish Junction.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday July 12, with the Caboolture North Lions requiring 20 members to become a standalone club.

If and when the target is reached, the club could appoint a president, secretary, treasurer and membership officer.

With eight members registered for the Caboolture North Lions so far, Caboolture North Lions spokesperson Kerri Raedel said, “We are receiving a high level of interest in the club and believe it won’t be long before the required membership is attained.”

Mrs Raedel said the fortnightly meetings involved learning about what being a Lion stood for, as well as deciding on projects to follow up on.

Mrs Raedel said the meetings also encouraged communication and provided the chance to form great member relationships, as well as encourage regular input from members so the club was continually active in supporting the Caboolture North and Elimbah community.

“There has been a lot of growth around the Elimbah/Pumicestone area, and the Lions District Governor along with the District Membership Team encouraged the idea to form a club to ensure no part of our growing region was left behind,” she said.

Mrs Raedel said there had been constructive ideas for projects such as supporting the homeless with regular food packages, supporting schools, and supporting local organisations aligned with Domestic Violence support.

“​As the membership grows, more project ideas will no doubt be put forward and decided on,” she said.

“It is a very exciting period!”

Mrs Raedel said the meetings so far had included personnel from other Lions clubs including Pine Rivers, Sandstone Point, Morayfield and District, Brisbane Bunya, and Brisbane Inner North. 

Anyone who would like to find out more about the new Caboolture North Lions club is invited to attend one of the fortnightly meetings, or visit the Caboolture North Lions Sub-Branch social media page, or email, or contact Kerri Raedel on 0432 197 701.
