Family Mentor Camp, 10-15th April 2015 Well some of you may know that the Lions Club of Forrestfield and High Wycombe held its 10th Family Mentor Camp in April 2015. Held at the Alfred Hines Seaside Camp on the beach in Rockingham, it brings together children and adults with a disability and their families to learn from each other, share experiences and have fun and relax. It was the fourth one I have organised, after taking over the coordinator role in 2011 from project instigator and former Lion Kerry Allan-Zinner. Despite the camp caretaker being in hospital, and the rain threatening to ruin our fun, the camp got off to a flying start literally, thanks to RadRock mobile climbing wall and bungee trampolines. Even those without the use of their legs got to jump, or swing, or just hang in the air, it was so much fun. And the kids and adults tried their best to get to the top of the 8m high rock climbing wall. We will definitely be doing this activity again! The next day we were lucky enough to have the Ellenbrook Lions Club bring their tractor train. For about two hours, kids and their parents hopped on and off, taking rides around the campsite. The smiles on the kids faces said it all. That night was our annual disco night, thanks to our President Lion Adrian for bringing all the gear. It was a movie theme this year, with campers requested to dress up as their favourite movie character, and movie themed music and pop quiz questions. We danced until way past the kid's bedtimes, but were allowed to when on holiday right? The next day we transformed the dining hall into our very own puppet theatre! The Black String Puppet Theatre brought the stage, the puppets, the music and the lights! All of the campers sat mesmerised as different puppets graced the stage one after the other. From Percy the clown MC telling jokes and introducing each act, to a snake charmer on a flying carpet, to Atlas the weightlifter, Snowy the wonder horse, Mr Clapper Bones the skeleton and Kylie Minogue singing. We didn't want it to end! The puppeteers were very talented, making the puppets move and talk realistically. The following few days we slowed the pace, with Nalda Searles teaching crafts such as stitching and tie-dyes. Other campers played at the beach, did some fishing or went for a walk along the foreshore. In the evening we had Megan come along with her "Wheels In Motion" dance class, which got everyone up and dancing again. On our last day, we had a fun science lesson, where we all learnt about corn starch packing materials (which you can make 3D pictures or models with), fake snow and how to make green slime! The boys enjoyed the latter the most. Then in the evening we had our Talent Night, where campers showed off their amazing talents. We had blind knitters, dancers, singers, poetry and a fashion parade of the items campers made during craft. Almost everyone had a go, it was great entertainment, except for one burping boy, maybe we won't ask him to perform next time! We all had a great week in Rockingham, where we challenged ourselves and made new friends. It would not have been possible without the generosity of the Forrestfield Community Bank, who funded us with a grant to cover all the costs. Big thanks also go to our volunteers, who cook, clean, and give their time to enrich the lives of these families. We really appreciate it. Melanie Hawkes 2

Lions Clubs boost funds for Mater Research A recent donation from Lions Clubs of Australia at their annual conference in Newcastle has provided a major funding boost for Mater Research to continue its leading-edge research into prostate cancer. Lions Clubs of Australia has donated almost $1 million to Mater Research during the past 12 years and presented a further donation at their conference for $209,918.80. Lions Clubs of Australia has been a major supporter of prostate cancer research through Mater Foundation with donations funding leading prostate cancer research and supporting the purchase of much-needed research equipment. Our members have really got behind this project and we are thrilled that our contribution is making a difference to the great research work being achieved at Mater. “We hope that, in time, our donations will result in much better outcomes for prostate cancer patients and perhaps ultimately result in finding a cure," Lions Club Prostate Cancer Coordinator John Grimstone said. “The visionary support of Lions Club Australia is absolutely essential for our cancer research efforts and inspires us to increase our research efforts, allowing us to take a multidisciplinary approach and to take on new research directions that have the greatest potential but are often not funded by mainstream funding bodies,” said Mater Researcher Associate Professor John Hooper. DONATION OF COMPUTERS TO THE ISLAMIC HIGH SCHOOL KUMBO DONATION OF COMPUTERS TO THE MBIAME COUNCIL CAMEROON The City of Perth (Host) Lions Club recently donated 5 computers to Mbiame Council. 1000 text books have also been donated to the municipal library in Mbiame and will shortly be officially handed over. With the assistance of City of Perth (Host) five computers and one thousand books have also been donated to Ndu and Nkor Councils and in the days ahead we shall be moving to Ndop and Jakiri councils and many more councils in Cameroon. Before these donations there was not a single computer in these councils and also there were no municipal libraries. The City of Perth (Host) Lions Club has just made a second donation of computers to Islamic High School in Kumbo, Cameroon. So far the school has received 24 computers and due to this large donation the Cameroon GCE Board has made this school a centre for GCE Examination computer practicals and the school is able to host other schools. Chin Idirisu Medorni the Executive Director of the Cameroon Education Foundation was the Principal of this school for almost decade and was awarded the Hubert H Humphrey Fellowship by the US Department of State. Mr Medorni thanks the Lions for their ongoing support to help eradicate illiteracy in Cameroon. 3

SWAN DISTRICTS LIONS CLUB Kathy Goldsworthy, Coordinator at NDIS service provider My Supports contacted the Swan Districts Lions Club in late May to outline a case for supporting an 11 year old boy Alex Tanasijevic. Alex is the primary carer for his mother Branka who suffers from multiple schlerosis. Despite this large responsibility for such a young person, Alex is excelling both academically and athletically at Clayton View Primary School and is on the Student Council. In addition, he was awarded the prize for young carer of the year in WA in 2014. Due to Alex’s mother Branka’s inability to drive, Alex is required to run errands for his family as well as getting himself to and from school and soccer training. After due consideration by members of the Swan Districts Lions Club, it was decided to support the request for a new bicycle for Alex Tanasijevic, so that Alex may attend to his commitments a little easier. Our Lions Club has sourced a donated helmet from Stay Strong and has purchased a new bicycle, carrier and lock to the value of $400 from Midland Cycles on Gt Eastern Highway. Mr Mark Tabone, Proprietor of Midland Cycles spent significant time adjusting Alex’s bike and it was handed over to Alex on Thursday 25th June 2015 with his mother Branka in attendance as well as various persons involved in this worthy community project. Pictured with Alex and his mother Branka are from left to right: Jim Cairns (CEO of My Supports), David Hatch (President of Swan Districts Lions Club), Mark Tabone (Proprietor of Midland Cycles), Kathy Goldsworthy (Coordinator of My Supports) and Gavin Thomson (Secretary of Swan Districts Lions Club).

Our Districts Travelling Gong is heading South again and was handed over by Northampton Lions Club to the Dongara Denison Lions Club. The Hand over was made at their dinner meeting on Monday 18th June 2015. Where will the Travelling Gong end up next. Any guesses. The WA Lions Drug Education Foundation (WALDEF) would like to present our new logo which will be used in all promotional material and correspondence from now onwards. in places as far apart as Busselton, Perth and Kalgoorlie. So far it has been a great success. Even if you cannot get a camera rigged up (as was the case on my old desktop) I could still hear the meeting and type in responses through the Teamviewer system! This new logo is eye-catching and thought provoking and more up to date with a younger crowd. The logo symbolises a living heart as well as emphasising the message about selfawareness and respecting yourself enough to be drug-free. This illustrates that drugs are harmful and will affect your health and damage the hopes, aspirations and potential that you could be to yourself and your family. Please keep on the look-out for new material available to help you, your club and your club’s community promote a healthier outlook on alcohol and drugs. We are going to have kits, (direct from the WA Drug and Alcohol Office), that you can use to help you promote these great ideas. New meeting format We are trialling new methods of holding our WALDEF meetings, which are easily applicable to other Lions district or Foundation meetings. We are using video and audio conferencing via a program readily available on the internet called Teamviewer. This program allows a team to link via their computers and hold a simultaneous meeting New Material Take a moment to check with your club’s Drug Awareness chairperson for the “Dear Me” documentary that you can copy for your club’s use. You are encouraged to use this documentary as a tool to help young people see what can really happen to those who think that they won’t be caught and also the horrific outcomes when they are. Thank you for your support, from All of Us at WALDEF! EXEMPLARY SERVICE AWARDS This prestigious Award is designed to acknowledge and recognise members of the community who are not Lions who serve their communities. The object of the award is to nurture and promote the principles of good citizenship by due recognition of Service to Others. To those who through practice and example to others, promote the principles of Good Citizenship. To those who in promoting these principles foster and encourage mutual understanding among the various segments in our community. Importantly, to those who through personal sacrifice on their part and through care and devotion give service to the Needs of Others. There is no cost to individual clubs and a beautiful wooden shield is presented to the recipient. If your club is interested in nominating a member of your community please contact Jill Middlemass 9342 0999 8

QUORUMS, AGM.S & AUDITS WHAT IS A QUORUM AND WHO DECIDES WHAT IT IS? answer is yes! The Department of Commerce in Western Australia states …’it is important to firstly stablish that there is a quorum. If there are not enough members present at the meeting to satisfy the quorum requirements in the association’s rules, the meeting will be invalid and any motions passed at the meeting may not be valid.’ WHY DO WE NEED TO HAVE AN AUDIT DONE? The Association rules in our case are of course our Lions constitution. Each club constitution must include a guideline on what constitutes a quorum. Almost all clubs use the standard club constitution as provided for in Section 8 by LCI. This requires for ‘The presence in person of a majority of the members in good standing shall be necessary for a quorum at any meeting of this club.’ Currently all but two of District 201W1’s clubs operate under the District Charitable Collections License. This is an important part of being a not for profit organisation. One of the obligations to working under District’s license is to provide a copy of the club’s audited accounts so that the Cabinet Treasurer can provide this information to the Department of Commerce which administers that portion of the Charitable Collections Act 1946 on behalf of the Attorney General. If a club fails to provide this information within the required time frame the Department of Commerce will very likely contact the club and advise it to discontinue collecting funds from the public for charitable purposes. WHY DO WE NEED TO HOLD AN AGM? Sue Lowe The Department of Commerce advises… ‘The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is a central part of an incorporated association’s governance structure, as it holds an association accountable to its members, and in some cases, the public. It is the only association meeting specifically provided for in the Act. 2nd Vice District Governor The association must hold its first AGM within 18 months of becoming incorporated. After the first AGM incorporated associations must hold an AGM once in every calendar year, within 4 months after the end of the association’s financial year. Assuming an association’s end of financial year is 30 June, then it must hold it’s AGM on or before 31 October. An association’s financial year will be defined in its rules.’ The Lions financial year ends on 30 June. An AGM meets for three reasons; to appoint an auditor for the coming year, to ratify the appointment of elected officers; and to set fees for the following calendar year. If your club is not holding an AGM perhaps you should look into this – it is a requirement of your status as an incorporated body. I can hear someone asking ‘is our club incorporated’ and the District 201W1 Reference Department of Commerce Lions Clubs International Club Administration Manual The manual has been updated over the past 8 months.

Australian Lions Visual Independence Foundation ALVIF is an MD 201 Category B project which aims to “bring happiness to Australians who are blind or low visioned through the use of assistive/adaptive technology”. For those not familiar with the Quest Bar Code Readers (BCR) – they are a portable “all-in -one” talking scanner unit. It is used to read existing bar codes on products and it also has the capability to record blank bar codes. Only limited by the imagination, bar codes can be used to identify all items. (eg identify food in the freezer, bottle of tablets or ironed onto clothing). Even Pharmacists can help by recording the dose of medication and instructions on a blank bar code which then enables people who are blind to dispense their own medication more confidently. The bar code readers are lightweight (only 120gms) and 15cm in length. They come with a database holding 1.2 million code identifications and an 8GB SD memory card which provides hours of recording and use. The inbuilt camera can identify currency and the memo record allows instant storage of information (eg someone’s number or address) There are also other uses and abilities such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as well as an, MP3 storage/player. It can also be switched to six different languages! The Foundation have now dispensed about 700 readers and we currently have 22 approved applicants across Australia who have placed grant applications with us and waiting for funding. When the funding is fulfilled, these applicants will be able to take possession of their new bar code readers. There are many ways in which clubs can assist us to achieve the goal of placing this life changing technology into the hands of these recipients. There is the option of full or part sponsorship of a particular recipient or Clubs can help by purchasing ALVIF products like “Bazza” the lion, BBQ packs, Aprons, and pins. ALVIF works with the various state and territory blindness agencies as well as our technology partners, to help bring exciting technology to those in need. ALVIF committee members are continually applying for funding, attending Texpo’s where we demonstrate the bar code reader. We also attend Lions’ conventions and at the recent MD Convention in Newcastle we handed out many grant application forms and expect to receive multiple requests for bar code readers in the near future. Visit our website http://www.visualindependence.org.au – which has been designed with a plain layout and text to ensure the various reading-to-speech programs can be employed by the blind community Please contact us if you or your club would like to know more about the work of ALVIF and help to assist people who are blind, to live more independently. Phone: 1300 787 469 and speak to Arthur Uren if you would like more information. By participating in the Lions Biggest BBQ 2015 By donating funds for an award for a worthy recipient.
