Keith Niewoudt has been a Lions member since 1978 and recently bade good bye to Uitenhage and relocated to the USA where he has joined the Lions Club in Portland.

At first, whilst still in his younger days, he joined the Leos Club before becoming a member of the then George Lions Club. Niewoudt subsequently relocated to Uitenhage and has been with the Uitenhage Lions Club for more than 34 years.

“Lions is about what you can give of yourself so that others can benefit,” said Lion Keith Niewoudt before his departure to the United States of America.

“This is the end goal and along the way you have a wonderful time making friends with likeminded people who have the same passion for helping those less fortunate than ourselves. This ultimately makes you feel good within yourself.”

Niewoudt said one must learn from one’s mistakes, own up to responsibility and perform at one’s very best for those one serves in one’s community.

“This is very much in line with taking responsibility for a project that is close to your heart. It stimulates you enormously when your efforts have contributed to the well being of those who are in need,” said Niewoudt.

Members of the Uitenhage Lions Club, their families and friends wish Lion Keith and his good lady Liz a safe and happy life in the USA.

“Lion Keith will remain with the Lions by transferring to a Lions Club in Portland which will be his new home,” said Uitenhage Lions Club president, Hein de Vrey.

Niewoudt is truly committed to the Lion slogan ‘We Serve’ and will hand over a Uitenhage Lions banner to his new Lions Club in Portland.
