I know that you will find much to enlighten and entertain inside. October has just finished and it turned out to be a busy month. Conventions for both districts as well as some other important milestone events made up most of the month. I started at the 201W2 Convention and again it was good to represent the District and play my part in the proceedings. The following weekend was our own convention at the Vines Resort and all the months of hard work by the committee paid off. Thanks to the Lions of Ballajura, assisted by the Lions of Swan Districts, an enjoyable and entertaining couple of days was had by all. Planning for most conventions starts some two years before the actual event so my thanks go to all the members for their hard work and dedication over this time. October also saw celebrations as the Lions club of Carnarvon celebrated Fifty years of service and my own club, Kingsley Woodvale, celebrated twenty-five years in the community. I attended both functions and was proud of the achievements by both clubs over the years. NOVEMBER 2015 Burswood Park and have a look around on the day. As we approach the Christmas holiday period and the end of the first half of the Lions year, keep in mind the members of your clubs who you may not have seen for a couple of meetings. A phone call or a card to let them know you still care and an invite to your end of year party may keep them in your club. We all need to look after each other so that our members stay, and more importantly, stay active. Also at the recent District Convention we failed to elect a Second Vice District Governor. A meeting will be organized soon and nominations will be called as it is important that we fill this position to allow our District Governor team to continue with development and effective administration of our clubs and projects. If you are thinking of nominating and need information, contact me or one of the team members and we will help with your inquiries. Until next time DG Colin Heap “Building Lives Through Service” If you attended the Convention you would have seen the presentation on the new Lions Australia Centennial promotion.”100 years and 100 stories of service” aims to involve Lions clubs throughout Australia and their communities in identifying and carrying out projects to mark our centennial in 2017. Contact me or check the Multiple district 201 website for details. “Have A Go Day" is on again in November on Wednesday the 12th.Lions will be there to promote what we do in the community and we may encourage a few more people to join us.

NORANDA LIONS AT THE RIVERSIDE RAMBLE This year’s Riverside Ramble conducted by the Lions Club of Stratton was held on Sunday 11th Oct 2015. The Noranda Lions set up a stall at the Ramble selling cool drinks and “Breggos” (Large fluff pastry Vol-au-vents with egg and bacon). Noranda also ran a “Money tree raffle” and a Membership promotion with emphasis on Zone 6 Lion Clubs. It was a painfully hot and humid day but it was agreed that the event was a success and Noranda had achieved the goal of promoting and raising the profile of Lionism at the Ramble.

NEWS FROM DISTRICT 201W2 THE LIONS HAVE ESCAPED That’s right. 21 Albany Lions broke free and headed to Karlgarin and were joined by Lions from Kulin, Narembeen and Corrigin Rotary members and later they all went to Hyden for an evening meal. It was all part of a camping trip arranged by Zone Chairman. Haydn McInnes, and Zone Chairman Frank Bailey with Albany Lion John Webb. It is part of a plan to encourage clubs from other zones to get together more and talk, exchange ideas and share stories. All Lions found they got to know each other better and catch up with familiar faces from other clubs as well as meeting new friends. Some Lions took caravans and others stayed in rooms on site in Karlgarin. Everybody struggled with the heat and the flies, but the company was good. First day after happy hour was a meal at the Karlgarin Country Club and a campfire for those who were still up. Day two was a look through the museum and the massive get together of Lions at the caravan park for afternoon tea. It was hot and when the rain came no one ran for cover but rather just enjoyed the rain and the drop in temperature that came with it. Then off to the Flying Doctor patient transfer station in Hyden only 17 Km away for the evening meal attended by 59 Lions and partners as well as Corrigin Rotary. Donations were made to the Royal Flying Doctor Service and everybody was well pleased with the evening. The Flying Doctor patient transfer station was built by Lions for the use of St John Ambulance Service to improve the quality of patient care, rather than having to stabilize patients on the ground as it was in Hyden for many years. So it was fitting that Lions would be able to get together at the station and see the efforts of dedicated Lions who made it possible. There is so much more to Hyden than Wave Rock and Hippos Yawn and so day three was looking around the Wildlife Park at the Wave Rock Museum/shop, and the paintings in the caves nearby and of course Wave Rock. Then a mass exodus as Lions head back home with new ideas and new friends. Submitted by Lion Glen Hurst MOSQUITOS WORRYING YOU TRY THE MOSQUITO TRAP Have you noticed the Mosquitos are already out! Here is a homemade trap to help keep you and the kiddos from being a blood donor!!! HOMEMADE MOSQUITO TRAP: Items needed: 1 cup of water 1/4 cup of brown sugar 1 gram of yeast 1 /2-liter bottle HOW: 1. Cut the plastic bottle in half. 2. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour in the bottom half of the bottle. 3. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide, which attracts mosquitoes. 4. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of the bottle, taping them together if desired. 5. Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top uncovered, and place it outside in an area away from your normal gathering area. (Mosquitoes are also drawn to the color black.) Change the solution every 2 weeks for continuous control. Lion Ted Lawrence Bassendean Lions 8
