We have just related some of our social events that have taken place and in most instances these have been organised by our ‘Lady Lions’, the wives of our club members. Like most Lions clubs, part of our strength is in the support we receive from our ladies and this club has been no exception. Besides organising the social side, our ladies have been tremendous helpers in many of the club’s fund raising projects by coordinating their efforts behind the members of the club in the numerous activities. One particular project was the Country Garden Expo each year where all our ladies would be responsibility for the various food stalls for the weekend. This was one of the best fundraisers of the Garden Expo and greatly appreciated by us. In the early years the ladies ran a yearly ‘Steptoe Stall’, a Mothers Day Raffle and a monthly cake stall at the Bellbowrie shopping centre. They were instrumental in the fund raising effort we undertook one year for our entrant in the Miss Personality Quest. Our wives tend to see Lionism as not taking their husbands away from them, but in fact see Lionism as an opportunity to be with us, to broaden their activities and their circle of friends.
