About Us and our Community
Culcairn was long a home and hunting ground for the Wiradjuri Indigenous people and we acknowledge the original land owners. The area was not known to Europeans until the 1820s, when the explorers Hume and Hovel passed through the area.
Referred to as the Oasis of the Riverina, Culcairn today is a busy agricultural centre with many heritage buildings such as the Culcairn Hotel, Memorial Hall, Court House, Railway Station and Station Master's Residence, and provides visitors with a range of recreational facilities: recently installed walking and bike track with excersize equipment enroute, football, tennis, netball courts, public swimming pool, lawn bowls, cricket facilities, along with licenced clubs and picturesque parks and gardens.
Culcairn is also the home to multiple Olympic gold medalist winner, Equestrian Andrew Hoy.
Culcairn Lions Club is part of the local community life. Clubs are easily identified by their distinctive Logo, the trademark of our International Association, and the 'We Serve' motto.
Lions code of Ethics
1. To Show my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.
2. To Seek success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part.
3. To Remember that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down another's; to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself.
4. Whenever a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards others, to resolve such doubt against myself.
5. To Hold friendship as an end and not a means. To hold that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one to another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.
6. Always to bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to my nation, my state, and my community, and to give them my unswerving loyalty in word, act, and deed. To give them freely of my time, labour and means.
7. To Aid others by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak, and my substance to the needy.
8. To Be Careful with my criticism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy.
