Welcome to the LIONS Season 2022!
There is a lot to tell you about in our first newsletter for the season…
I would like to introduce myself, Perdita Yarwood. I’m the newly appointed Club President for the Lions. I have a long standing association with the Lions, starting in2012, with 4 of my 5 boys playing for the Club.
I have held various roles, includingJunior parent, Team Manager roles, Club Secretary, Senior parent, pseudo photographer (by no means professional – at this stage!), supporter, volunteer and now President – and Im excited to bring my experiences to this new challenge.
I would like to thank my predecessor, Matt Lemmers for his dedication, effort and
hard work.He’s still a huge part of the Lions, by continually helping our Junior program and volunteering his time around the club.
As we get ready for Round One on Saturday 2nd April – welcome to our new players, families and sponsors and those returning. We are thrilled to be entering another year of footy at “The Den”.
I am delighted to announce some new faces to our Committee as well as some long time members, who continue to work to keep our club up and running successfully.
Please reach out to any of the committee members – we’d love to hear from you.
