(a) Youth Services

Annually the Club runs a Youth of the Year competition with entrants from local schools. Judging in on the basis of private interviews plus public speaking consisting of answers to two impromptu questions and a prepared speech.


The above photograph shows contestants from Loretta College and Macgregor High who participated in the club Youth of the Year 2016 which was held at the Newnham Hotel and Function room Mt Gravatt.

Winners proceed to the next level of competition which is a Zone Final, followed by Region, District, State and National Finals.

(c) Citizenship

One of the aims of Lions is to promote the principles of good citizenship.

It is with that aim in mind that on Australia Day every year Lions Clubs organize a ceremony at which prospective New Citizens make their Pledge of Commitment as a final step in becoming Australian Citizens.

On Australia Day 2010 the Ceremony was held in association with the Brisbane City Council in a novel, never-to-be-repeated, location: the entrance to the Clem7 tunnel which was in its final stages of construction.
Lord Mayor Campbell Newman was the Presiding Officer of the Ceremony.




(d) Environment

Each year Macgregor Lions participates in the cleanup Australia program and other environment programs.
