About the Dromana Lions Club
The Lions Club of Dromana was formed on 21st August 1967 and is based on the picturesque Mornignton Peninsula just 66 km south of Melbourne.
We generate funds for the provision of services to the local and international community by volunteering our help in the following projects:
The operation of the Lions Opportunity Shops at 25 Pier Street, Dromana and at Shop 1, 1401 Point Nepean Road Rosebud, (adjacent to the Rosebud Shopping Hub)
The promotion and running of major fundraising events
The provision of labour and services for community events put on by the Mornington Peninsula Shire and other charitable and service organisations
Although our main fundraising is through administering our two Opportunity Shops, staffed by an amazing group of volunteers, it is not all work and no play. We have Guest Speakers on a quarterly basis, family BBQ's, "Coffee and Cake" mornings, the occasional meal out at local restuarants and visits to other Lions Clubs, amongst other social activities.
How can you help?
Would you like to join us in making our communities and the world better places to live?
Lions club members are men and women who strive to make a difference in their local community as well as addressing unmet health and education needs worldwide.
