District 201V2, Victoria, Australia Updated 12 Feb 2019



Portarlington/Drysdale Lions Club proudly celebrates its 50th anniversary this year and we hope to find as many past members as possible to help mark the major milestone.

The Club was chartered in December 1970 and continues to serve the wider community of the north Bellarine.  

Over half a century, members have taken part in countless projects donating time and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for charitable and other worthy causes.

President Stephen Love says the Club wants to contact as many former members as it can to invite them to join present Lions in a special anniversary event later this year.

“Earlier generations of Lions set the foundation and community spirit that characterises our Club today and we want to recognise their contribution,” he said.

Lions International is the biggest service organisation in the world with nearly two million members in 190 countries.

If you are a past member of the Lions Club of Portarlington/Drysdale and would like to join our 50th anniversary celebrations, please contact the Secretary on pdlionsclub@hotmail.com or 0421 054 842.The Club also would welcome any old photographs and/or documents (for copy and return) to add to the Club’s historic collection.

    The Lions Portarlington Market is bigger and better than ever following a revamp over the winter closedown.
    Market management is now online, meaning stallholders can book and pay electronically and our improved Facebook page keeps the public up-to-date on market developments.
    The September market opened the new season in style with more than 80 stallholders and plenty of entertainment and this will grow as the warmer weather kicks in.
    The next Market will be held on Sunday 27 October between 9.00am and 2.00pm in Little Reserve, Newcombe Street (opposite The Grand Hotel.)
    Enquiries/site bookings: 0490 060 574 of Facebook Lions Port Market.
