Tell us about how important volunteers are to your work: Lions International would not exist if it wasn't for Lions Volunteers, and the many programs world wide would not happen if it wasn't for Lions.
What types of tasks do you need more volunteers for? Most importantly like many Service Clubs we need members so we can serve the community.
What is the best way for someone to get in touch if they'd like to volunteer with you? Via our webpage Lions Club of Beechworth, or email email@example.com
