Howick Lions Club Open Day – 7th October, Fencible Lounge, Howick 10am – 2pm
Howick Lions Club will be holding an Open Day on the 7th October at the Fencible Lounge, next to Howick Library. Raffle prizes, art competitions for children, drop off your old glasses and hearing aids to be recycled, bring in your old money and foreign currency to help Kiwi kids in need - all in aid of supporting our local and wider community.
Students aged 11 - 13 can enter the Lions Clubs International Art Contest through Howick Lions Club by creating a “Peace Poster”. The international winner’s prize includes US$5000. Each of 23 international merit award winners also receive prizes. If you’d like to find out more, come along to our Open Day to register your interest and pick up the rules.
Younger children can enter our colouring competition and be in to win some fabulous art materials. Just visit our website, download the colouring sheet for your child’s age group (5-7 and 8-10) and drop off the completed masterpiece at our Open Day!
Raffle tickets will be on sale at the Open Day to win the international award-winning cookbook 'Food as Medicine', or a signed copy of local history book 'Grey's Folly'. You can also order copies of the cookbook at the Open Day and proceeds from the raffle and cookbook sales will go back into our local community. While you’re there, place your orders for our famous Lions Christmas Cakes!
Do you have old spectacles, sunglasses or hearing aids lying around? Drop them off at our Open Day and Lions will recycle them to aid people in the Pacific Islands and other places with people in need.
Bring in your old money and foreign currency and Lions will redeem the obsolete cash to fund education programmes and activities for young disadvantaged Kiwi kids.
Interested in becoming a Lion? Come to the Open Day to find out more. We’ll have local and international videos of the work Lions do and Howick Lions will be present to answer your questions about our Club and our activities – both volunteering and social!
