Lion Clubs are part of community life, in cities and country areas in Australia and around the world.
All Lions clubs in Australia come under the umbrella of Lions Australia and are a part of Lions International. Lion Clubs are filled with people who are joined by the common desire to make their communities better, by using their creativity, enthusiasm and energy for the benefit of others.
Clubs are easily identified by their distinctive Logo, the trademark of our International Association, and the 'We Serve'; motto.
The Lions Club of Croydon-Mooroolbark Inc
On 6 August 2019, the Lions Club of Croydon and the Lions Club of Mooroolbark officially merged following the approval of Consumer Affairs to be now known as the Lions Club of Croydon-Mooroolbark Incorporated, having been initially approved by Lions Club International.
The Lions Club of Croydon (Number 22974) was Chartered on 11 November 1964 with 27 members, having been sponsored by the then Lions Club of Ringwood. Since that time, Croydon Lions has subsequently sponsored the Lions Clubs of Lilydale, Sherbrooke, Montrose & District, the Leos Club of Croydon (Twice) and the Lions Club of State Parliament, Victoria.
The first 3 woman were inducted into the Club in 1989 and we hosted the 201V5 District Convention in 2003. During the clubs 50 year history, many of the Croydon members have served Lions and the community generally with distinction.
The Lions Club of Mooroolbark (Number 22974) was Chartered on 11 November 1964 with 27 members, having also been sponsored by the Lions Club of Ringwood. Over 40 years ago the Lions Op-Shop commenced operation in Manchester Rd, Mooroolbark.

With over 100 years of voluntary service, considerable funds have been raised and returned to the community by both Clubs, locally, nationally and internationally. From giving a helping hand to the disadvantaged to funding medical research, community facilities, providing disaster and emergency relief. In addition, to youth and enviromental projects.
