FORMER Lions Club of Glenorchy City member David Triffett has been appointed as the Chairperson of the Council of Governors for Lions Australia.

Mr Triffett has been a Lion for 20 years, having served 16 years with the Lions Club of Glenorchy City before recently transferring to the Lions Club of Clarence.

“I’ve always been interested in community service,” Mr Triffett said.

“During those years, I’ve been able to grow a community of Lions in Glenorchy City and work with the community in a lot of projects and help those people who have had hardships or are in need.”

Mr Tiffett said his goal was to continue to serve the community to the best of his ability

“The community means to me to be part of a bigger network of people and looking after each other,” he said.

“I believe it’s connecting everything together and the service in what we do.

“Tasmania continues to work and deliver small services where they can, assisting the elderly, collecting warm clothing for those in need and most importantly, looking out for and keeping in touch with the community.”

In 2009, Mr Triffett was Glenorchy Citizen of the Year, following the motto of ‘connect together in service’ – working together as a team to achieve strong, positive and sincere service to others.

“I enjoy seeing someone be happy,” Mr Triffett said.

“It’s all community minded and to just see smiles on people’s faces and see our community grow is amazing.

“Where there is a need, there is a Lion.”
