Seven young students from Maclean High School have completed over 700 hours of service in our Clarence Valley in the past year. The areas of service in our community include: environment, public health, safety, literacy and education, disaster relief, community improvement and helping children and elderly people.
The Lions Young Leaders in Service Awards recognise young people (12-18 years) for their community service within a 12 month period, 50 hours of community service constitutes a Silver Seal award, whilst 100 hours of community service is Gold Seal award.
Recipients receive a Silver or Gold award certificate and a congratulatory letter from the president of Lions Clubs International, Dr Jitsuhiro Yamada. Dr Yamada oversaw the award of these certificates and they were signed by him and counter signed by Yamba Lions president Norm Greenup and Maclean Lions president Brian Grieve. These are International awards.
Congratulations to all students.
