Welcome once again to our District Newsletter. 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
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
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.
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

NORANDA LIONS AT THE RIVERSIDE RAMBLE

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
Derrick Wright … V/P Noranda Lions.

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
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.

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
HOMEMADE MOSQUITO TRAP:
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 gram of yeast
1 /2-liter bottle
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.
