GEELONG BREAKFAST LIONS CLUB

District 201V2, Victoria, AUSTRALIA

Lions Club of Geelong Breakfast

The Lions Club of Geelong Breakfast was formed by people who had a strong emphasis on youth and this remains the strong focus.

We are unique because we meet at 6.45 am for our meetings. This allows members who do not have time in the evenings to serve their community
