The Boyne Valley Lions Club was chartered of the 18th of April 1979 with 30 members. The Club now has 19 members. We meet on the 1st Thursday of each month at the CWA Hall at Ubobo at 7:30 p.m.
The Boyne Valley is a small rural community with a population of approximately 150 people. When the ratio of members to population in country clubs is compared to city clubs, you will find that there is a lot more community commitment in rural areas.
One of the first projects of the club in 1980,was to build the barbecue area at Ubobo. We recently rebuilt this to provide a first class barbeque area.
We help out at many of the functions held in the Valley by different groups, often running the bar.
This will be held in conjunction with the Boyne Valley Country Music Campout on the 30th November. We invite poets and locals to participate and is a great fundraiser for prostate cancer research. Last year we raised $4200. We have lots of multi draw raffles, and full breakfast entertainment.
Thank You for your support this year.
Our office bearers are: President – Rodney Hopson; Secretary – Michael Leahy; Treasurer – Neville Mossman.
