The Port Rex Lions Club held their World Service Day on Sunday at the Guild Theatre, in East London where they put on a spectacular show for the local senior citizens.
The elderly were treated to entertained by the Hudson Park Primary School’s music department who sang, and played harmonic melodies.
“The Lions Club does this across the world for senior citizens. This is done all over the world as the Lions Club. This year, we have invited the elderly from old age homes, as well as those and from the community to celebrate World Lions Service Day which took place on October 8,” said club president Diane Sierra.
“World Lions Service Day is an important day for every club in our worldwide association. It is a day to reflect on our heritage as world leaders, in an effort to fight the plagues that too often confront mankind – the poverty, disease, despair, hunger and loneliness.”
“October 8 is a day when Lions around the world join to show the world through example, the objectives of ‘Lionism’ and ethical practices which Lions uphold, to be the very essence of that spirit which amalgamates us into the largest service organisation in the world,” Sierra said. On this day Lions show their neighbours and community what Lionism is all about,” Sierra said.
