Te Awamutu Pakeke Lions Club is on the lookout for new members to strengthen its group of active individuals helping out in the community.
Pakeke Lions is for those who are retired, with some time on their hands and are keen to enjoy fellowship with other like-minded individuals and to make new friends.
Like all Lions clubs, members like to keep themselves active for the betterment of their community.
Te Awamutu Pakeke Lions Club gets together once a month to enjoy a good lunch and benefit from guest speakers and other entertainment. Meetings are designed not to run too long.
