With amazing support from the community in general and the Lions Clubs communities in specific, the Sydney Autism Community Lions Club, which is the first of its kind in Australia and the second in the world, has finally launched.
On the night of the 27th of October, 2018, at the Parra Villa Function Lounge in Paramatta, NSW, the young club celebrated its charter event among a host of family, friends, neurodivergent friends and Lions Clubs members from the district and other districts.
The event was marked by the different way it was organised in an attempt to cater for the vast majority of neurodivergent individuals who thouroughly enjoyed their time.
