AUGUST 2018
POWER OF ACTION ROUNDUP
Our fun will always begin when we talk about steps on how
to make the world a beer place:
Join a Lions Club
Stay in Lions Club
Get others to join Lions Club.
The icing in that are all our random acts of kindness from
making people smile to raising funds to make a dierence.
It is only August and my return to our District from the
Internaonal Lions Convenon in Las Vegas is sll very
fresh: when I noced in my peripheral eyesight some
people hiding behind the columns while I was waing for
my luggage in front of the allocated carousel at Perth
Terminal 1. I wish to thank everyone who surprised me at
the airport and how can one not be grateful for the
surprise Sunday breakfast”?
It was almost a mystery why I got emails asking if my return
inerary was conrmed and unchanged so many mes.
Then I was only allowed to say 2 words at the breakfast
which was great. What that means is that I can share with
you all some highlights in
Las Vegas, not just with
the members that were
present at that
surprise (someone
forgot to delete my name
on the email list 󰽠).
Needless to say, the
pretense ended when I
asked which Sunday was
the breakfast. Because
we do not have a winner
of our compeon in the
July newsleer. In this
issue, please email me
the Lion who was the culprit (let slip about the Sunday
surprise breakfast) and you can win that dinner for 2 at
Bistro BellaVista valued at $55.
Back to Las Vegas:
At the District Governor Elect school, Nadia Comaneci, the
Romanian rst perfect 10 gymnast in history - 1976, was
one of our movaonal speakers. Her topic was around the
acronym FOCUS:
F is nding passion
O is Overcoming Obstacles
C is Courage
U is Ulise
S is Share
Then there was the Internaonal Parade of Naons, the
Convenon and the installaon of Gudrun Yngvador(IP),
the rst Internaonal President from Iceland. IP Gudruns
theme for the year is Beyond the Horizon, pushing out
into uncharted territory, as we enter a new Century of
Service.
Her IP pin has a a very simple yet impacul message We
Serve”. With this theme I am requesng all our District
clubs to take on one new service acvity this year -
something that you have not done in the past. This will
accept and connect your club in discussion, planning and
acon in your communies in need. Key Lions service areas
to consider are: Diabetes Awareness, Environment, Hunger,
Vision and Childhood Cancer. I also strongly suggest to
donate at least 10% of your funds raised to LCIF and nd
recipient/s from your deserving members of the Melvin
Jones fellow at the same me with your LCIF credit
donaons.
The month of July and the rst part of August was packed
with Global Acon Team (GAT) meengs. We already had 2
GAT District meengs on the 17th of July and the 30th of
July. As I write this roundup message, our membership is
sll very stagnant at year to date stats of 738. The MyLCI
reporng: 60% of our total clubs are not reporng their
service hours. I implore all the Club Secretaries to ask for
assistance so that we can assist you in this. It is also our
District Goal to increase our service reporng.

WELCOME WINTER WARMTH
The Lions Club City of Perth has once again reached out to the
homeless within the City of Perth and its surrounds, with the purchase
of 170 blankets to provide some welcome winter warmth, during what
has been a chilly, cold and wet winter. The Blankets for the Homeless
project was borne out of a Swags project some six years ago.
Over the years the Club has gone onto purchase blankets and delivered
them to dierent Charity agencies for distribuon to those in need.
This year, the Club has connected with St Georges Cathedral, to
complement its Outreach Programme for the Homeless. Each day,
several the Citys homeless, approach the Cathedral for food packs.
Now, blankets can also be oered for comfort and warmth. The
blankets purchased are light, eecy and at 160cm x120cm give people a
good warm wrap round. They are also light to carry.
The blankets were purchased in me for Homeless Week 6-12th
August. Homeless Week highlights the number of Australians and West
Australians that do not have a place to call home and who have slept
rough due to such circumstances as housing crisis, domesc violence
and nancial stress.
St Georges Cathedral has already distributed many of the blankets
purchased. Some of the blankets will be ceremoniously presented to
the Cathedral and blessed by the Very Reverend Richard Pengelley, Dean
of Perth, at a Cathedral Evensong on the 19th August. His Excellency The
Governor and the Archbishop Kay Goldsworthy will be in aendance.
It is a great honour for the Lions Club City of Perth, to have worked with the Cathedral in reaching out to those in need at
this me of year to give some welcome winter warmth. The project also highlights the common core value and mission that
we have - Service to the Community.

CLUB SERVICE ACTIVITIES
Congratulaons to the Clubs listed on right who have reported their Acvies for the
month of July 2018. This is just 17 Clubs out of 45 in our District. My aim for the current
year is to have 100% of Clubs reporng their Acvies.
As at 12
th
August, there have been 3078 hours of Lions volunteer hours reported on
MyLCI. Imagine what that total would be if all Clubs reported the wide range of amazing
and meaningful service they provide to their communies?
Has your Club appointed a Services Coordinator? Do you have a system for collecng the
informaon to be reported?
It is important to report the Service Acvies on MyLCI. Why? These reports let your
District, Mulple District and Lions Internaonal know that we are living up to our moo
We Serve’. Clubs are asked to report their projects, the number of Lions members
involved and the number of volunteer hours given, in addion to the number of people
served, funds raised and/or donated. If your Club is having dicules accessing MyLCI or
using the Acvies reporng, please let me know and assistance will be given. Training
will be given if required.
I hope there is a bumper cropof Service Acvies reported for August 2018.

Australian Lionsonoz Changeover
On 25
th
July 2018 the Australian Lionsonoz Lions club conducted their annual changeover.
The dierence this year was that it was a Face to Face(sort of) event at Karuah Caravan Park on the Mid North coast of
NSW.
We were very grateful that PIP Barry Palmer agreed to ociate.
Although 75% of members were present the meeng was sll conducted on line”. Twelve computers and IPads were set
up and together with the remainder of available membership on line elsewhere, the ceremony took place.
PIP Barry also used a computer to
install Lion Cheryl Buckley as
President, Lion Debbie Weekes as
Secretary and PCC Bob Buckley as
Treasurer. Lions Rhonda Courtney
(VP & Tail Twister) PDG Peter Veryard
(VP), Je Mo (Membership), Marge
Ollis (Bullen Editor) and Don
McLeod (Lion Tamer).
Australian Lionsonoz members rarely
get the opportunity to meet with
each other as they are scaered
anywhere throughout Australia on
their travels. The members try to
meet local lions in the towns in
which they nd themselves and
aempt to assist those Clubs in their
projects. Australian Lionsonoz
members meet once a month using
their computers to access Skype.

THE 2018 IAN CONSTABLE LECTURE
A Tale of Two Diseases: Regulang Immune Responses In The Rena
By Professor Andrew Dick, Director of the UCL Instute of Ophthalmology.
Our immune system does not operate solely to protect
against infecon, cancer and ssue damage. The immune
system has evolved so that many cells, both of the immune
system and non-immune cells in all ssues, have an ability
to generate immune responses that regulate and maintain
normal cellular, ssue and organ funcon. Acvated and
overacve immune responses are observed in many
blinding non-infecous disorders.
The eye is endowed with an exquisite network of cells
capable of regulang funcon of the ocular ssues
compartments (such as the rena and cornea). However,
two diseases I will discuss demonstrate how the
dysregulaon in the immune system generates blinding
disease.
The rst is uveis, a general and non-specic clinical term
to describe inammaon inside the eye and the second is
age-related macular degeneraon. This talk will describe
how our understanding has led to step changes in
treatments in children and adults with uveis and the
current research on how the diseases inform our
understanding of immune responses that maintain normal
ssue funcon by regulang metabolism and cell funcon.

Lions urging Perth people to share Petals for PlusLife
EVERYONE loves receiving owers.
That is why a campaign by Midland-
based PlusLife is encouraging people
to share a ower posy in a bid to raise
awareness of bone and ssue
donaons.
Lions clubs across Perth, including
Duncraig, North Beach, Floreat,
Kingsley-Woodvale, Ballajura and
Swan Districts, are leading the Petals
for PlusLife movement.
Duncraig Lions member Carmel Ward
described it as a simple, grassroots
concept.
Anyone who receives a Petals for
PlusLife posy is encouraged to enjoy
their blooms and then replace the jar
with fresh owers and pass it on to a
friend or relave to help drive
awareness about this special cause,
she said.
Somemes its not about having a big, fancy, expensive campaign to drive home a message.Each jar has a tag aached
that explains the important work of PlusLife, details about ssue donaon and how to register as a donor.
Fellow member and Carine resident Rob Meney said the campaign was a perfect t for Lions.
Bone and ssue donaons and transplants can and do help so many people, including children,he said.
