will be discussed. Your team is working hard to ensure our
future.
Besides the Club Rebuilding we can look forward to a
Lions4Kids event at Burswood Park. This will be held on
Lions Awareness Day Saturday 3 March 2018. I currently
have an applicaon in with the Board of Management of the
park and hope to receive approval very soon. Your club is
invited to this event to host a sausage sizzle, bring your
train, run a bouncy castle or a chocolate wheel or any other
acvity your club can help us out with on the day. We will
be raising funds for Lions Childrens Mobility Foundaon
and Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundaon as well as
holding a recruitment drive. I would like to form a
commiee to organise this event so if you are able to assist
please give me a call.
My message this month in essence is; get involved, join with
district to keep our membership strong. Our clubs will be
the beneciaries.
Keep on keeping on in 2018 and take a Leap Into Our
Future!

I hope that all our members have had a wonderful break
and that you are looking forward to spending me with
your Lions Clubs in the coming year. Try to keep in mind
the fun you have had in the past at your meengs;
remember to include at least one fun acvity at each
meeng; and dont forget the tail twisng! Lions
membership is the gi that keeps on giving, you cannot
buy the great feeling you receive when you are able to
help someone who really needs it. While we are a service
organisaon we need to remember that fellowship and fun
acvies keep our clubs strong.
Our membership is of some concern to me at present.
When I checked this Boxing Day morning I found that our
membership numbers have dropped to just 810. There
may be more by the end of December.
I, with the assistance of our District and Mulple District
Membership and Leadership teams, am hosng a Club
Rebuilding Workshop on Saturday 3 February 2018. Your
club needs to be represented at this workshop. In fact, we
would like at least four members from each club. There is
no cost for the workshop and we will provide catering.
Please spare some me to make your club strong and
future proof.
Many clubs will be in recess at the moment and word may
not reach all members, so please promote this workshop.
Your club does not have to nominate you to aend. You
can nominate yourself as
long as you are a Lion.
The Council of Governors will
be meeng on 18 January
and Allan and I will travel to
Sydney for this meeng. Also
travelling to Sydney will be

HANNANS GOLDFIELDS LIONS CLUB
The Kalgoorlie-Boulder community has
come together to rescue the local
Foodbank just before Christmas.
Aer the storm on November 18, the
Kalgoorlie-Boulder Foodbank was
without power and much of its fresh and
frozen stock had to be thrown away.
Disaster struck again on Monday when a
lightning strike caused a power outage
leaving the outlet without power for
three hours. Some of the fridges did not
turn back on when the power was
restored and 400 meals, valued at $1200,
had to be thrown out.
Foodbank manager Sandy King said the
contribuon was welcomed in the wake
of recent events and just in me for the
fesve period. It was terrible but the
donaons have kept us aoat,she said.
The contribuons have restored our levels of stock to about 80 per cent capacity and Im completely overwhelmed. It
has come at a me when we were under pressure and demand is on the rise.
A generous donaon by the Hannans Goldelds Lions Club led the way. The club presented the food-relief outlet with a
cheque from the Australian Lions Foundaon Disaster Relief Fund for $10,000, as well as a cheque for $500 from the
Kalgoorlie branch. Club president Sue Turner said the club heard about the crisis facing the Foodbank and acted.
We are over the moon that we have been able to oer something so signicant. I cant recall our club giving out a
donaon as big as this,she said.
TransAlta Energy also chipped in with a cheque for $2000. Not-for-prot organisaon Bag of Beaues donated 26 toy and
family bags, and Woolworths is also donang 60 hampers to the cause.

manager Sandy King and Lions Club of Hannans Goldelds President Sue

BROOME LIONESS CLUB
LIONS YOUTH OF THE YEAR 2018
If your club wishes to take part in this programme there are a couple of things you
need to do.
Your club secretary can go online to the Lions Australia website and download the club
parcipaon form and then send it to me so that I know the intenons of your club to
hold a club judging. Your Club may wish to nominate a member to coordinate the club
programme and to liase with the district.
A number of students from various schools have submied entry forms to some of the
clubs and we have need of clubs to be involved and host a club judging. This is a great
way to engage with youth and your members will enjoy the experience. There is plenty
of informaon on the Lions site under the Youth of the Year heading and there are
also a few Lions in the district who can also give advice. The more clubs, the more opportunies for students.
We would like to be able to allocate the students early in the new year so as to allow them and the clubs to prepare for
the programme which will commence in mid February with all club judging to be completed by the 28th of February.

great things, but there is sll so much to be done. There are
sll people in need of support, care, or even the basic
necessies of life, such as shelter, food, and water.
Lions and LCIF, together, have made a tremendous impact
this year, including surpassing US$1 billion in grants awarded
since LCIFs founding in 1968. Visit our brand-new
anniversary website, hp://www.lcif50.org/

and the work Lions are doing all around the world.
