The Lions are on the lookout for new members, and you can inquire at the markets on how to get involved.

The club, which is 11 years old, has grown from a handful of pioneering members to about 30 on the books in 2021.

Media officer Shirlene Pott said club members come together to help the community at times of need.

"Anything that happens, a house burns down, we will help."

Mrs Pott said residents who joined gained leadership experience and the satisfaction of helping people.

Recently, members helped organise the Remembrance Day service at Tamborine Village.

The group meets twice per month, with a business meeting on the second Thursday at the Lions Club Community Hall.

On the fourth Thursday, the club members have a social outing to a restaurant in the area.
