Welcome to the Lions Club of Yarra website
The Lions Club of Yarra Incorporated ('Yarra Lions Club') is a member club of Lions Clubs International - the worlds premier community service organisation, with 1.35 million members. Yarra Lions Club is one of 46,000 clubs in more than 210 countries. Regardless of what language we speak, or in what country we live, all Lions are dedicated to seeking out and helping those in need.
Since 1917, local Lions clubs have offered people just like you the opportunity to give something back to their communities. From involving members in projects as local as cleaning up an area of a park or as far-reaching as bringing sight to the worlds blind, Lions clubs have always embraced those committed to building a brighter future for their community. The world has changed and so have we.
As you read this, Lions around the world are donating millions of dollars to local community causes, and millions of hours of hands-on service. Right now, this very moment, Lions around the world are dedicating themselves to eradicating preventable blindness; financing vocational training to help the underprivileged and disabled gain economic independence; and sponsoring drug awareness and education programs for youth.
In short, our programs are as diversified as our members. Lions Clubs International has evolved to meet new needs and greater demands, but our mission has never wavered: "We Serve".
