Lions is a community service organisation! People join Lions because they want to user their intellect, creativity, commitment and enthusiasm to get things done. 

 

What about the Lions Club of North Rocks Activities ?

Project Manning

            We are very conscious of the need to preserve time to spend with one's family and friends and therefore we ask only that members give what ever time they can. Accordingly the manning of club projects is covered by rosters which have always proven successful in achieving the necessary balance.
