We are a friendly Lions Club serving the Omokoroa Peninsular and local districts of Pahoia, and Whakamaramara.

Our members , along with partners and friends, meet for dinner at 6pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, except in January, when we enjoy a more informal gathering usually in a member's garden. If you would like to join us for dinner, contact one of the numbers below.

Our meeting place is the Settlers Hall in Omokoroa Road. Our caterers are first class and we enjoy a happy evening with a speaker or entertainment.

Our business meeting on 4th Tuesday of each month is where our Board discuss our projects, our financial situation in regard to requests for donations and sponsorship and other club matters.

We encourage the youth in our area to apply for our 2 annual scholarships, provided to tertiary students after the first year at University or other tertiary institutions.

We can also help find sponsorship for young people wanting to do activities like Spirit of Adventure, Outward Bound or Sir Edmund Hillary awards through the Lions New Zealand charity Heads Up 4 Kids.

Our projects are generally based in or around the peninsular which include managing a large selection of medical equipment available for all to use. All we ask is a donation for its use. Contact Mary on 548 1600.

We also monitor the Green Waste operation for the WBOPDC on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons (2-4pm) with payment for our time supporting our numerous community donations such as local schools, Omokoroa 1st Response team, our local Fire brigade.

We run a BBQ at Omokoroa's monthly market at the Settlers Hall carpark on the last Saturday of each month.

We also collect:

  • Old spectacles for distribution to other Pacific Island countries

  • Wine caps and can tabs , aluminium cans and aluminium coffee sachets.

  • Foreign currencies and outdated NZ coins and notes which are collected for the Lions NZ Heads Up for Kids Charity
