NORTH BEACH LIONS CLUB Two Anzac Bears have been presented to Gwelup Primary School Headmaster Greg Clark right by our President Jeanette Simpson Lions North Beach gifted two Great War uniformed bears through AnzacBears com au This gives teachers and kids a truly engaging way to connect to the stories of the past Each bear comes with detailed Great War uniform and story card The Western Front Bear is kitted out in boots and proudly wears his officer pips In preparation for the Western Front he also wears his Brodie helmet and PH anti gas mask carry bag The Story of the Western Front Bear One thing for sure life on the Western Front is very different to Gallipoli First thing is we re up against the German Army and there s a lot of them And it s really big If you joined up all the trenches the front line and support trenches I reckon they d easily stretch between Sydney and Melbourne We zig zag the front line trenches that face out to the enemy just in case they get in we don t want them shooting straight down a long line Most trenches are deep enough that a bloke can stand without getting his head shot at but they aren t much chop against incoming shells All along the front shelling from big guns has blown away most of the trees and covered the ground in deep holes We make covered shelters in the trenches but there s no protection if one comes down on top of you When we go into the trenches we swap our slouch hats for metal Brodie helmets and carry gasmask hoods in bags on our chests The gas is a shocker Instead of putting explosives in the shells they use poisonous gas that makes a deadly cloud If someone sees gas they ring a bell and we all get our masks on in a flash There s not much distance between us and the enemy The Germans have trenches opposite and the land between theirs and ours is called No Man s Land Sometimes at night you can hear blokes talking in German We sneak across and try and capture a prisoner or two or throw a few hand bombs They do the same It keeps us all on our toes Luckily we don t have to stay in the front trenches all the time Usually after a week we go back to another line of trenches called the support line and stay there for few days doing odd jobs about the place to keep things in order but always ready to help if there s an attack Then if it s all quiet we go back to our camp or even to local villages and new men take our place One of the worst things about life in the trenches is when it rains they fill with water and mud You could drown if you re not careful Some clever spark came up with the idea of duckboards These are like wooden paths set above the water Blokes still get wet feet though and lots end up in hospital with horrible cases of trench foot Regular foot inspections are an important but smelly job One thing that many diggers enjoyed was Blighty Leave Blighty was a slang word for England and diggers would fill the streets and shops of London whenever they could Leave was a relief from the hardships and dangers of the trenches 12

THE PRINCIPLES OF RECRUITMENT What is the secret key to fixing the issue of declining membership in our constitutional area While there may be no single all encompassing answer that provides the solution to that particular problem there are most certainly steps that one can take that will help make us all better at recruitment of new members In my 21 months as a Lion I have sponsored 65 new members However I have recruited around 100 New Lions in multiple states districts and for other clubs How do I do it While the full answer to that question is the subject of a full length recruitment presentation that I am always willing to facilitate as a break out training sessions at any state convention or leadership forums that would like me to come and visit I can sum it up fairly quickly I am always following what are known as the Principles of Recruitment 1 Reach out to a broad constituency Diversity is our strength and is one of the key answers to the problem of declining membership Anyone who follows me on Facebook knows that I am constantly out and about in a wide variety of diverse communities being an evangelist for Lionism If you are only looking for recruits from the people who are exactly like you or are already your friends you are severely limiting the potential for your club s growth 2 Multiple Methods of Recruitment are Important Ask One definitely works as a principle if you are talking to people at one of your service events but it can be supplemented by putting recruitment messages in social media posts press releases to the news or even by doing what I call Show One dressing up in Lions gear and going to volunteer for other organizations who share a similar mission I can t even begin to count how many recruits my club has gotten by us being willing to go out and show other people what it means to be a Lion by helping out at non Lion events 3 Have a simple message Practice your elevator speech It needs to be simple short and PERSONAL Don t simply regurgitate statistics about Lionism Tell people what inspired you to become a Lion and find a way to connect the service your club does to whatever your potential recruit is passionate about 4 Follow Up With Your Recruits Immediately I always contact them within 48 hours and find a way to invite them to the next service project I avoid inviting them to meetings until they have a chance to serve Our motto is we serve not we meet and most younger members are more interested in service than meetings anyway 5 Ask Everyone to Do Something Find out what they are passionate about and engage them immediately in a club related activity or service project surrounding their interest If your club doesn t have something planned empower them to help lead or create a new service project 6 Use Other Networks Form Community Partnerships with other organizations that share similar missions and look to them for potential new recruits 7 Always have Materials Ready I don t go anywhere without a stack of Lions applications in my back pocket It s how I ve recruited people at airports on trips to other districts and all around my community How are you expecting to a recruit a new member if you aren t ready to recruit a new member 8 Always Be Recruiting It s become a running joke in my club but if I talk to a community minded person for more than 5 minutes I will have at least mentioned the possibility of them becoming a Lion at some point I don t ever do a hard sell with practice you will learn how to spot someone who needs more time to think about it or it s just not right for them at that particular point in their life No matter what though I am inviting them out to an event or service activity even if it s just as a volunteer so they can see what we do If you are always recruiting the chances of you gaining new members will significantly increase There you have it the 8 simple steps of the Principles of Recruitment While there is a whole lot more to the process of becoming an evangelist of Lionism if you start there you will be well on your way to sponsoring your next member Lion Daniel Marney Elkins Bellefonte Lions Club District 22 D in USA 15
