  • Busselton Lions Tertiary Scholarship

    The Busselton Lions Club is offering tertiary scholarships to one student (boy or girl) at each of the five secondary schools in the Busselton area. This offer is part of our policy to support and assist the youth in our region.



    Each scholarship is worth $2,000.



    Recipients must have completed year 12 and must have the necessary attitude and aptitude to succeed at tertiary level next year.



    Our Club members would prefer scholarship winners to be from a family which may have difficulty financing their child’s post-secondary education.



    Information about the scholarship has been forwarded to the schools and their staff will select a winner and the successful candidate will be recognized by the school community as having won the scholarship.



    In the New Year our Club will arrange to have funds disbursed, on behalf of the scholarship winner, to cover course expenses at his or her tertiary institution of choice.

    One gap year can be taken.

    Meet Clarrie, our latest recruit!

    Clarrie the Lion is the latest addition to the resources available for clubs. He has already appeared at a few Lions events since arriving in WA recently, and is shared by W1 and W2 clubs.

    Clarrie appeared at the Baldivis Bunnings community event on Saturday 28 July 2018 and was a great drawcard for young and old alike. His next outing will be at the Serpentine-Jarrahdale Fair on Saturday 11 August so if you are in the area, drop by and say hi to him. And all the other Lions who will be there.

    If your club would like to borrow Clarrie (and/or the resource trailer that is now very well stocked), you can contact the District Marketing Coordinator. His details are in your Lions 2018-2019 Planning Diary as well as the Multiple District Directory. You can check out the contents of the trailer and how to go about booking it and/or Clarrie by logging in to the Member section of this website and clicking on the Member Resources tab.

    East Fremantle Lions Markets

    East Fremantle Club has obtained approval from the Town of East Fremantle to conduct a market on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

    The location is a park on the southern shore of the Swan River, at Norm McKenzie Reserve, 85 Riverside Rd, East Fremantle and it will be open 9:30 to 2:00pm.

    Details (and Application Form) can be found on their website http://eastfremantle.wa.lions.org.au or downloaded from the link below.

    The markets are being supported by Booragoon and Fremantle Clubs, but any other LIONS who are interested (and enjoy) markets are welcome to enquire, and earn $ revenue for their own club through their participation.


    Please check with East Fremantle LIONS for details and how it works …. Someone who can help with bookings etc will be especially welcome to enquire, and they of course will be a shoe-in for participation on the day of the events as well.

    The picture shows an aerial view of the location.

    Stall-holder enquiries are welcome, and not for profit organisations will be welcome with special consideration; for example, our friends at Rotary will have a spot promoting their “Shelterbox” programme for disaster relief.

    We seek LIONS support in attendance, and even just helping hands (and minds) to make this new market a success for many years to come.

    Contact: Alan Springett, on behalf of East Fremantle LIONS club,
    a.springett@optusnet.com.au 0402 499 049.
