A Short History of Mana Lions Club

In 1972 the Porirua Lions Club called a meeting to determine if there was any interest in forming a new Lions Club in the Mana District, following the charter of the now defunct Pukerua Bay-Paekakariki Club.

Over 70 attended the meeting, and such was the interest that in December 1972 the Mana Lions Club was formed in the Paremata-Plimmerton rugby club rooms at Ngati Toa Domain.

The Club was officially chartered in February 1973 with 28 members, 2 of whom are still active.

Membership has fluctuated over the years with the club peaking at 64 members in the 1977/78 year.

Although the Mana Lions Club membership has peaked and troughed, the club has enjoyed a relatively stable existence due in no small part to the tremendous fellowship and social climate which has been fostered over the years. Current membership is 44 (as at March 2020).
