1 201W1 NEWSLETTER www.201w1.lions.org.au www.facebook.com/LionsInWesternAustralia lionsdistrict201w1@gmail.com HUMANITARIAN SERVICE, DISASTER RELIEF, MEDICAL RESEARCH, SIGHT & THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF YOUTH WE SERVE JANUARY 2018 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 Children’s 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! The SLowe Express 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 don’t forget the tail twisng! Lion’s 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 1stVDG Luen and CabSec Richard for training purposes. We also have the Global Acon Team State Meeng on Sunday February 4 where further training and strategies relang to retenon and service will be Official Publication of Lions District 201W1 EDITOR RICHARD TUNMER PO Box 2524 Malaga WA 6944 (M) 0415 089 938(H) (08) 9209 1358 email : richardjill@bigpond.com.

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 I’m 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 Hannan’s 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 can’t 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.

7 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.
