POWER OF ACTION ROUNDUP
Hello, my fellow Lions, well the last month was a busy
month for me, I had the pleasure (not sure if this is the
correct word) of wearing Clarry the Lion for the Lions
Awareness Day at the Perth Zoo. Thankfully it was not an
extremely hot day, but I was sll thankful for the in-built fan
in Clarrys head. I believe it was a successful day in that
many contacts were made with non-Lions and we now have
a number of people to contact and talk about Lions,
hopefully we can get some new members.
I was very pleased to be given the honour of inducng four
new Lions into the Lions Club of Ellenbrook, congratulaons
to Ellenbrook for inducng four members and thank you to
our new members for joining.
I also aended the Ballajura Harmony Day. Clarry made an
appearance on the day and thank you to Lion Norman Paini
or volunteering. The Lions Club of Ballajura had a stall set
up there and Lions Club of Ellenbrook had their train
operang at full capacity. It is excellent to see Lions out
supporng community events,
My club (Noranda) has recently been working very closely
with the Morley Leos. On the 9th of March we had a
Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings Malaga and we made it a joint
acvity with the Leos. We had
new members of the Leos
changing every two hours. It was
great opportunity to work with
these young people who
donated their me to help. It
was a great
We then teamed up again for a
free Wet and Wild event in
Beechboro, there was a bouncy
castle and two big water slides
and free sausage sizzle and so
drink. The Leos again assisted in set up, giving out drinks
and sausages, rubbish collecon and clean up. It was a very
successful day and appreciated by the community.
A big thank you to the Ellenbrook Collecve for geng this
up and running and partnering with Lions.
I have menoned the above to highlight how a close
working relaonship between Lions and Leos is a win win
for both Lions and Leos.
Finally a thank you to all of you for the work you do in the
community, it is very much appreciated by your cabinet
team and the community.

LIONS HEARING FOUNDATION
HEARING BUS DRIVERS: We urgently require any Lions Member with a HR Drivers
Licence to volunteer to take the Hearing Bus to various events.
HEARING BUS TESTERS: An urgent appeal to any Lions Member to volunteer as
Testers. Full Training will be provided to both the above posions. We would gladly
hear from any Lion who would like to be part of the Hearing Bus Team. We are
desperately short of volunteers who are available for both mid week and weekend
events. It would ideally be suited to Lions within the Perth Metro area as the Bus is
garaged in Perth.
Please make contact with the LHF Screening Chairman Ivan Sturgess on
isturgess44@gmail.com or 0451 655 808 to discuss.

District 201W1 Lions Youth Of The Year 2018/2019
The Lions Youth Of The Year program is now in its nal stages. March was the
month when the region and the district nals were held. The next stage for our
students is the State nal on Saturday the 13th of April at the Duncraig community
centre.
Thank you to the eleven clubs who sponsored students and held club events, and to
all the parents and schools who also took an interest in the many club and district
judgings.
Also, a big thank you to all the judges and NAB representaves who gave their me
and experse to adjudicate the many Youth Of The Year events this year.
The northern region nal was held on Saturday the 9th of March at the Duncraig
community centre. The overall winner on the day was Luke Osborne from Guildford Grammar school, sponsored by Swan
Districts club. Luke also took out the public speaking prize. The two other students who advanced to the district nal were
Alexandra Prichard from Iona Presentaon college, sponsored by Kingsley Woodvale club, and Zachary Mahews from
Guildford Grammar school, sponsored by the Ballajura club.
The southern region nal was held the next day, Sunday the 10th of March at Rocky Bay village at Nth Fremantle. The
overall winner on the day was Lachlan McDonald from Perth Modern School, sponsored by North Beach club. The Public
speaking prize was awarded to Joly Harrison-Murray from Scotch College, sponsored by Perth Metropolis club. Lachlan,
Joly and Emerson Varris from Guildford Grammar school, who was sponsored by the Lions Eye Instute club, all advanced
to the district nal.
The 201W1 district nal was held on Saturday the 23rd of March at the Duncraig community centre. The overall winner on
the day was Alexandra Prichard from Iona Presentaon college with the public speaking award going to Luke Osborne from
Guildford Grammar school. Alexandra Prichard, along with Zachary Mahews and Lachlan McDonald, now advance to the
state Youth Of The Year nal on Saturday the 13th of April.
Good luck and best wishes to Alexandra, Zachary and Lachlan as they now prepare to represent their clubs, schools and our
district in the state nal.

NORANDA LIONS CLUB
The Noranda Lions Club held a sizzle
at Bunnings Malaga on the 9th May
following an invitaon by their
management. It was decided to
donate all prot for the day to the
Morley Leos Club, as Noranda Lions is
their sponsor.
Sadly the weather was wet, hot and
humid which did aect sales. Ten,
Morley Leos under the guidance of
Norm Paini and the wing of Morley
Senior High school teacher Gerard
Richardson parcipated and helped
out.
The extra hands were greatly
appreciated by the Noranda Lions
and the Leos gained immensely from
interacon with acve, parcipang
Lions members. The Noranda Lions
are looking forward to more Lions/
Leo project parcipaon in the near
future.

The progress towards achieving the Service Hours target of
50,000 is looking very posive. The tally for the Year to Date is:
37,740 hours - at the end of March we are at 75.4% of the
target amount. Cabinet Secretary Richard is looking forward to
including an exploding thermometer graphic when we achieve
the target.
I acknowledge that many of the Clubs are sll working out how
to access their Lion Account to gain access to MyLCI to enter the
data for March. An email was sent to all Club Secretaries (to
pass on to members), outlining the steps necessary to set up
your Lion Account. Please read the informaon, and if you are
sll struggling to get access, please call me, I will be only too
happy to help.
There are sll many Clubs not reporng any service acvies.
Other Clubs have only reported one or a few acvies this Lions
year. How can we honour your service if we dont know what
your Club is doing?
To the 17 Clubs on the Honour Roll for March 2019, I thank you
most sincerely for your service to the community – You Rock!!

LIONS AWARENESS DAY HOBART TASMANIA
At the recent Lions Awareness Day in Hobart Tasmania, a young
man and his family sought out the Lions Stall and told us how the
Lioness Club in Broome assisted him to aend the State Special
Olympic Games in Melbourne 2014. He and his family now live
in Hobart and is keen to connect with Lions in T1.
He brought his support groupand was very keen to have a
photo taken with me. Most impressed that I had a temporary
taoo of a Lion on my arm.
It is always very rewarding to speak with someone who was
assisted by Lions and in this case the Lioness Club to achieve
their dream ……a Bronze medal in swimming….this certainly was
the case for Sami Savu.

KALGOORLIE LIONS CLUB
Members of the Kalgoorlie Club have worked hard seng up the Clubs Food Stall and working the Stall over two days
22/23 March at the Community Fair Kalgoorlie and also running the children's Train.
The Fair was a great success with the Club returning record funds (Prots Train $2,2490 & Stall $2,350). With about 100
hours with both the acvies.
At the Train it was decided to train some new drivers and the picture tells a thousand words. The Fairy was from a
entertainment group at the Fair.
OPERATION TEDDY BEAR
A number of clubs in our district supports Operaon Teddy Bear through the purchase of teddy
bears. Club can now make a donaon to the project. Please visit this link - Bear Purchase Order
Form
On behalf of the Chairman of the Lions Crimewatch Commiee Inc PDG Stan Falloon, the
Coordinator of Operaon Teddy Bear Lion Shane Bruce and the members of the Crimewatch
State Commiee, I wish to thank all of the wonderful members of the Lions family who have
supported the Crimewatch Teddy Bear program over the years.
It has come to our aenon that many clubs simply wish to make a donaon to our commiee,
to enable us to connue to donate bears to many Magistrate and Childrens Courts and to
numerous Emergency Service providers. We discover this when a donaon magically appears on our bank statement. We
then need to work out if we have missed an order from that club, or if it is simply a donaon.
Therefore, the order form (aached) has been updated to include a Donaonopon.
Should you wish to make a future donaon, we would be very happy if you were able to indicate this by either posng or
emailing this updated form, nong the amount of your donaon.
Bear orders are, of course, always welcome. Please contact Shane on operaonbear@optusnet.com.au for freight costs if
your club is not in Victoria.
With thanks from the commiee.

Let me start o with a reminder about arcles on Membership included in previous edions of the District Newsleer. If
you dont have access to back copies, go to the District Website.
December 2018: Just Ask over the holiday period ask anyone, old and new friends, neighbours and family. (Easter
holidays are coming up!)
January 2019: Developing the script, the invitaon, geng the contact details, the follow up and also for Membership
Drives. Included in this edion, with permission from the author, was a great arcle The Principles of Recruitmentby
Lion Daniel Marney Elkins, Bellefonte Lions Club- District 22-D in USA
March 2019: Geng support from volunteers and encouraging them to become members. Just Ask for help and
membership.
The focus for this arcle is to help build condence and skills to use when inving people to join Lions.
Be proud of what Lions has achieved in your local community and around the world. Wear your lapel badge and pracce a
conversaon starter. The Lions brand is well known but it is also a well-kept secret! There are some great resources to
use in promong Lions, such as the pocket sized fold-out which gives a wealth of informaon (the metrics) about the
impact that Lions has achieved in Australia. Get some for your Club.
Dont get bogged down in negave thinking about what people might think about you, dont get embarrassed. Project a
posive atude, smile, make eye contact and be courageous. Look for the bright sparks and engaged people, the
achievers, the leaders, the person with the smile and willing atude.
Get to know the person, ask open ended quesons, get them talking. Find out what their interests are, their employment,
ask about their family etc. Build the relaonship. Even if they dont join Lions they will remember how you made them
feel.
Idenfy a community need and design an acvity to meet that need which will aract interest from younger people. Use
this as a talking point.
Ask the person if they could change one thing in the local community, what would it be? Would they like to help to
achieve that change?
If they have a reasonnot to be Lions member, let them talk it out. E.g.: too busy at work, got kids at school, travel too
much, work FIFO. Talk about some of the projects that the Club has undertaken in recent mes and how this made a
dierence in the community.
Learn some of the metrics about how much Lions has contributed to Medical Research, Disaster Relief etc. Be proud that
100% of funds raised goes to the various causes that Lions Clubs support.
Lions service is about doing What you can, When you can, How you can. Family comes rst, then work/employment, then
social and other commitments. If there is a lile me leover to help Lions serve the community in a small way, that is
the only commitment you will be asking them to make. There will be others who have me to spare and they will be
willing to make a bigger commitment – these are the people you want in your Club!
The Membership Chairperson does not have the sole responsibility of inving new people into the Club. Every member
should be on the look-out for people ,18 years and above, to join this amazing world-wide organisaon.
There is an imperave to increase the membership in our District, it is important to aim for quality above quanty. We are
looking for people who are ethical and honest, who can live up to the Lions ideals and Code of Conduct.

LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION
LCIF IS THERE FOR LIONS TO HELP THEIR COMMUNITIES WHEN DISASTERS STRIKE
Last month, Northern Australia experienced two high
intensity Tropical Cyclones Cyclone Trevor crossed the
North Queensland coast and Cyclone Veronica crossed
into Western Australia. Both cyclones caused destrucon
and wide spread ooding. Then, at the other end of
Australia, Victorian Lions needed a LCIF Emergency Grant
to rebuild lives following major destrucve bush res.
LCIF has provided US$10,000 Emergency Grants to
Districts 201Q2 and 201V3; but it didnt end there.
It is not only Australia where LCIF helps following
disasters. The aermath of Tropical Cyclone Idai in
Mozambique has le over 400,000 people homeless. Over
2 million people have been aected across Mozambique,
Malawi and Zimbabwe. Connuing heavy rains are making
rescue eorts extremely dicult, especially as roads are
impassable. Medical aid workers are fearful for out-breaks
of cholera.
Mozambiques President reports a high death toll, over
1,000, stang that whole villages have disappeared in the
extensive oods as two major rivers overow. Three LCIF
Emergency Grants of US$10,000 each have been
provided.
Monsoon storms in Nepal have caused devastang
oods, with destrucon of homes and schools. Lions and
villagers of Nepal are sll rebuilding schools following the
earthquakes of April 2015. These oods have made the
rebuilding much more dicult. LCIF awarded an
Emergency Grant of US$10,000 to assist the Lions of
District 325-B2 to help them with storm relief acvies.
When asked for help following disasters LCIF have
immediately responded with US$10,000 Emergency
Grants. The TV news reporters will move on to the next
story, but Lions and LCIF will stay to help out-t schools,
medical centres, hospitals, giving hope to communies. This is where LCIF Matching Grants up to $135,000 will be needed.
Please request your Lions and Lions Clubs to help rebuild communies – click here for the new donaon form .
If you require any assistance or have any queries please contact our District LCIF coordinator Mary-Anne Wolf -

was the Charter President of the now closed North Perth Lions Club when it was formed way back on 19th October 1965.
In Pauls e-mail to me I will quote his words Dad has lived and breathed Lions and is sll acve with the Fremantle Lions
Club but, at 94, will soon move into higher care as his ability to live independently is no longer sustainable”.
Ross was concerned that the wonderful work of the North Perth Lions Club, which closed 30th June 2006, would disappear
into history with no recognion of the past Lions who gave so much to the community. I have since met Ross, collected
(and sll going through) boxes of paraphernalia and eventually will be adding the History of that Club to the many pages of
history I and past Historian Ray Zinner have already wrien up. Ross has also given me the original framed Charter of the
Club, the original Banner as well as the original Gavel and Gong Set which has all the early Presidents named on it.
Amongst one of the boxes I came across a Book called Challenge! A Way of Life by Jim McLardie, OAM published in
September 1997. It is a very interesng book, starng o with the early days when Australia was just one District. The
paragraph A Travellers Tales was quite intriguing and, I quote herewith, a part which was called The Crystal Highways:
It is now possible to drive across the Nullarbor Plains or up the Pacic Highway to Cairns on good roads. That wasnt the
case when I rst started travelling for Lions. The trek to Perth was sheer torture, especially in bad weather. The coastal
highway in Queensland was a single strip of pot-holed bitumen, which didnt allow two cars to pass without one or both
veering on to the shoulder. It was known far and wide as the Crystal Highwaybecause of the gliering shards of broken
windscreens along its length. In 1964 alone, our car suered nineteen smashed windscreens (not including stone chips
and cracks). From 1965 our insurer added a clause liming the number of windscreens they would replace in any one year
to ten. Those of us who travelled constantly learnt to live with these problems.
Jim then decided to billLions Headquarters and in his own words said they looked askance at my compensaon claims.
Jim, LCI said, do you realise the cost of travel in Australia is higher than anywhere else in the world? They nobly refrained
from inferring that I must be a roen driver.
Then Vaughan Bradshaw (Jims immediate superior) decided to visit Australia. Jim said it gave him great pleasure to take
him on a trip or two. Naturally, he said, he didnt select the best roads for the exercise. Aer that he never heard
another word about the cost of claims.
Summing up Jim said Our American friends have very lile understanding of condions in Australia. To that comment I do
think that LCI, even today, have no idea of how large Australia is.

Do you know someone that wants to help out in their community but, they travel a lot or they dont have a Lions
Club nearby or they dont have the me or the desire to aend regular meengs?
Then maybe the new WA Travellers Lions Club is for them - the WA Travellers Lions Club will inially be
a Branch Club and it is for people on the go. No meengs, no regular commitments, just an avenue to help out where and
when and at a me and place that suits them.
So who ts the mold? - Grey Nomads, FIFO workers, Past Lions, Current Lions who are at large or thinking about
leaving a tradional club. Anybody who wants to give back to their community, but who wants to do it on their terms and
has community values at heart.
How does it work? - as Lions is foremost about service, you are required to give a minimum of 12 hours service per
year. Not hard. When you break it down it is less than 15 minutes per week. There is no requirement to aend any
meengs although you would be made very welcome at any tradional Lions Club meeng.
Cost is $2.50 per week which gets you full cover under Lions Internaonal Insurance Scheme, access to projects
worldwide (surely there is at least one you are passionate about – or even start your own), access to personal
development training (online), access to friendship and fellowship network.
Yes there are similar clubs operang, but they are Eastern States based. Being a member of WA Travellers Lions Club
gives you access to WA Lions, their acvies and opportunies.

Ellenbrook Lions with their train joined us on the day and
where kept very busy
Clarrie the Lion made an appearance and entertained the
children and adults with his lively jig. Lion Norman Paini
was inside the Lion suit.
Ballajura Harmony Day is an annual event involving community groups, schools and dierent cultural groups. This is a
free event except for the food and drink and has been running for many years with the Ballajura Lions involvement. On
the day we help with the parking and clean up at the end.
We also have a stall to promote Lions and make people aware of what we achieve as Lions. We had an compeon with
the public guessing how many sweets there were in a bole. A nine year boy was the closest and won a chocolate
Easter hamper delivered to his door.

WA LIONS HALL OF FAME
Why A Hall of Fame?
The WA Lions Hall of Fame was established in 2012 to
celebrate the outstanding contribution made by individual
Lions in WA. Whilst most Lions dont seek recognition, it is
right that we acknowledge those in our clubs that go above
and beyond consistently and for a sustained period of time.
Who can be nominated?
Any current member of a Lions Club or a deceased Lion
who has made a significant contribution to Lions and their
community in Western Australia. They do not have to have
served on Cabinet. Indeed many already admitted to the
WA Lions Hall of Fame are Club only Lions. Lions
members currently resident in another state or who have
been members interstate are eligible to be nominated,
however it is only their contribution to Lions in Western
Australia that will be taken into account.
Who can nominate?
Any Lions Club in Western Australia. Nominations must be
on the official Nomination Form. The Nominee does not
have to be, or have been, a member of that particular Club
or Foundation.
How are nominations assessed?
Nominations will be assessed by a panel of judges
consisting of WA Lions Hall of Fame Committee members
(W1 & W2) and eminent non Lion Western Australians. In
considering nominations, the judging panel will take into
account the degree and value of their contribution to their
community as well as the District and or State. Length of
Service whilst considered will not be the primary focus.
How much information is required in
the Application?
As much as possible. The judges are unlikely to know as
much as you do about the nominee. So include everything
you possibly can. That way you will give the person the
very best chance they can to catch the judges eye.
Does it cost anything to nominate
someone?
Yes. We are asking Clubs to pay a fee of $115.00
per nomination. The fee will be used to offset costs
involved. This includes the cost of the award night itself
(those that are nominated will NOT have to pay for their
dinner). It will also go towards the cost of the plaques and
certificates.
What if the person we nominate misses
out?
No one will miss out. Firstly being nominated is a huge
honour in itself. Every person nominated will also receive a
framed certificate acknowledging their nomination.
Secondly, all nominations will be automatically considered
for the following two years, so there will be no need to
nominate them again for that period of time.
How will the Awards be presented?
A special WA Lions Hall of Fame Dinner & Presentation
Night will be held on Friday 1st November in Perth to
honour and recognize the contribution that Lions have
made in Western Australia over the past 57 years and to
honour a number of Lions that have given exceptional
service during the past 57 years.
Will there be equal representation
between W1 Lions and W2 Lions?
No, not necessarily. We are acknowledging the
outstanding Lions from throughout Western Australia
and recipients will be those deemed the most worthy at the
time by the judging committee. (Dont forget that for many
years WA was just one District)
How many Lions will be inducted?
In keeping with the prestige of this award, the number
inducted each year will be capped at 3, making this a very
special award.
