RED HILL DISTRICT LIONS CLUB

District 201V3, Victoria, Australia

About Us

Lions is a community service organisation. People join Lions because they want to user their intellect, creativity, commitment and enthusiasm to get things done.  This is where you can find out about the sorts of projects that your local Lions Club is doing.  Like what you see?  Get involved!

Red Hill Lions are always looking for community members to be involved in their projects whether or not they are members of the club.

Lions Clubs are part of community life, in the cities and in the country. Clubs are easily identified by their distinctive Logo, the trademark of our International Association, and the 'We Serve'; motto.

Lions Australia is part of an international association, filled with people who are joined by the common desire to make their communities better, by using their creativity, enthusiasm and energy.
