Part of the large audience at the Lion's welcome dinner
It all started with an idea of a dinner to welcome new residents to Maleny at a board meeting but with lots of hard work, planning and community support it became a reality.

Last Wednesday night 18th October Maleny Lions held their first Welcome to Maleny Dinner at Tranquil Park Resort, Mt View Road Maleny with an amazing and unbelievable response of over 170 guests.

Representatives from Maleny Police, Ambulance, Rural Fire Brigade, SES, and Hospital Auxiliary spoke briefly about what their organisations had to offer new residents.    Maleny Chamber of Commerce was represented and a number of local business owners attended.

Special guest speaker for the evening was local resident Colin Campbell from ABC’s Gardening Australia Show who captivated the audience with his fantastic stand up comedy skills as well as being a gardening guru.

Colin Campbell gave great information
about "Gardening on the Range"

We would like to sincerely thank our major sponsors; Maleny Super IGA, Tranquil Park Resort, Woolworths Maleny, Maleny Chandlers, Pioneer Permanent Building Society Maleny, Top of the Range Quality Meats, Scotty’s Pet Foods, Maleny Newsagency.

We would also like to acknowledge the assistance and support from ten local Real Estate offices that enabled us to search out new residents in our beautiful part of the world. 

Congratulations to Maleny Henzells, Ray White Maleny & Maleny Reality for the extra effort and number of invited guests (new residents) and your attendance showing value added service.

There was such a huge response to this dinner and requests to attend next year showing a great need for this event in Maleny that with the continued support of the local community Maleny Lions have committed to holding this Welcome to Maleny Dinner annually.

If you require any further information about this event or would like to join Maleny Lions please contact Secretary Clarke Alexander on 5494 4981.
