We serve is not just a motto, it is an action plan that has served the world well as volunteers respond to the call to help their fellow men. Our Club believes in getting involved in matters in our own area for after all that is where we draw most of our support. We are proactively represented in the Community Police Forum and support the country's first Guardian Angel Chapter and are involved with many other community service centres, clinics, hospitals and projects.
Our philosophy is that Service has no Boundaries and resultantly we are also actively supporting projects across the country. Notably the Club has pioneered work in the primary health care sector, Kangaroo Mothercare (premature babies), humanitarian aid distribution of medical and educational supplies and the free distribution of pre tested hearing aids through our partnership with the Red Cross Children's Hospital Audiology department.
Our male and female members are drawn from different suburbs and include both working and retired people. We believe that many people are just waiting to be asked to join a prestigious Club such as ours. Working together is the fundamental objective of our volunteer community service programme and the accompanying fun and shared satisfaction of a job well done is all we need as reward. Many Parow Lions have served our international association at Club, District, National and International levels.
A happy Club is one where all its members are involved in a democratic discussion making process which translates in to full member support and involvement in the Club's service programme.?
Every year the membership elect a new president who will serve from 01 July to 30 June along with a board of directors who are responsible for managing the Club and its humanitarian service activities. We meet twice monthly on the first and third Monday at the Parow Lions Community Centre, Alexandra Street, Parow 19:30 for 20:00.
Our current President is Lion Clive Fox who has served the association at many different levels including that of District Governor in 2002/3.
