3 LIONS CLUB OF GERALDTON CHILDREN'S EASTER PARTY Sunday was the day of the Children's Easter Party. This was the day the Geraldton Lions Club and the Batavia Miniature Railway Society hosted thebe-annual Children's Party. The park was lled with acvies that provided children and adults many hours of enjoyment. This event is held twice a year in conjuncon with the Batavia Miniature Railway Society - in April and December. What started six years ago with a couple of hundred people frequenng the park to aend this event; has grown tremendously with children under 12 years of age receiving tokens fora free drink, sausage sizzle, ice cream, a ride on the miniature trains, pony rides, face painng and a bouncy castle. This event was very successful for all who aended with the Geraldton Lions Club handing out over 700 tokens to children with a bag of lollies. There was also a peng zoo, a temporary taooist and Greenough Wildlife Parched some of their animals on display helping to keep everyone entertained. The Batavia Miniature Train Society was kept very busy with 3 trains connuously moving in and out of the staon house with many happy smiling children on board. Members were pleasantly surprised at the turnout for the day, being one of their busiest for the year. All the members of the Geraldton Lions Club were kept very busy throughout the day with sausages sizzles, hamburgers, bacon and egg sandwiches and drinks ying out of the caravan and the tent. A huge 'thank you' is extended to the volunteers who assisted the Lions Club on the day. Without these people assisng the club at these big events, it would not be possible to host these days - Many Thanks. The Geraldton Lions Club would like also extend a huge "Thank You" to all the families who aended this event and the past events. It is a delight to see the joy these pares bring to those who visit the park. Plans are about to commence for the planning of the next Children's Party on Sunday 03 December 2017 and the members of the Lions Club are looking forward to seeing all the children aend this party with the same gusto and enthusiasm. Prior to this the Lions Club will be back at Spalding Park in May 2017 to support the Miniature Trains and to rene our eorts again for the next big party. Lion member Lynne Langwell, volunteer Mark Ausburn and Lion Julie Palmer working the caravan Batavia Coast Miniature Railway Society trains leaving the staon house on the many many loops they did on the day. The bouncy castle was a huge hit on the day with the children Gloria Stanley-Smith and Paul Purcher handing out tokens, lolly bags and selling rae ckets to the vising families.

6 KALGOORLIE LIONS CLUB KIDS FESTIVAL Over the weekend of the 22/23 April the local Council organised a Kids Fesval for children up to about 12 years old providing many games and acvies. Entry was free to all rides and games as well as the Train. The Kalgoorlie Members were asked to provide the Train. The members were over whelmed with the number of children aending so reduced the ride to Half a kilometre. Over two days, 10.00 am to 4.00 pm, the Train did 140 rides providing approximately 3000 rides for the Children. The Train virtually ran non-stop for the 6 hours each day with the members working very hard. This acvity with the Train is a record for the members and the Train. Bat Man entertained the people and we gave him a ride as well. Three Fairy's were singing to the people and we gave them a ride.

10 WHITFORD LIONS CLUB 25TH ANNUAL COMMUNITY FAIR Thousands of people crowded the alleyways between the stalls, lled the Lions food hall in the Fleur Freame Pavilion and watched the entertainment headlined by Radio Lollipop to make the 25th Lions Club of Whiord Annual Community Fair a roaring success. For twenty ve years the Whiord Lions have provided the Joondalup community with a fabulous day out while creang an opportunity for local not for prot groups to fund raise and commercial operators to display their wares. The Fair has been sponsored each year by the City of Joondalup and has been supported by other Lions clubs. Twin Cies Radio 89.7fm again produced an outside broadcast from the Fair. Over the years the Fair has evolved to meet changing economic and social condions but the basic concept has always remained the same. Lions giving to the community. Much of the good work that all Lions clubs do is not seen by the community and the Fair is a way of promong Lions and Lionism in the community. To celebrate the twenty h anniversary of the Fair the Whiord Lions ran a free rae with a prize worth in excess of $500. The rae was not only to promote the Fair, it was also to encourage people to patronise the stalls by giving a free rae cket with purchases. The winner was drawn by Joondalup Mayor, Troy Pickard. Mayor Pickard praised the Whiord Lions management of the Fair and described it as a highlight of the Joondalup social calendar. The success of the Fair over the years has been the result of a lot of hard work by the various fair commiees and the support of the enre club. The Fair is one of the major projects carried out by the Whiord Lions and is produced in the spirit of the Lions Internaonal moo, “We Serve”.

12 In February 2017 the C Districts launched their new Skin Cancer Screening Unit at the Torrens Parade Ground in Adelaide City. It was a momentous occasion not only for South Australia but also for us here in WA as it, rst of all, emanated from the visit of our Coach and Screeners to the 2014 ANZI Forum held in Adelaide. This visit resulted in the then Internaonal President, Joe Preston and wife Joni, being screened and remarking “why wasn’t there something like this in the States”? Since then USA have shown interest, New Zealand as well as Victoria where we took the Van over for the 2016 MD Echuca Convenon. On the way home from that Convenon there was screening held in various towns and with all the “bad” results coming forth it shows a Van is badly needed in the V Districts. The wonderful culminaon of all of this screening is the number of lives that, hopefully, will be saved in the immediate future. Of course another plus was the C Districts Skin Cancer Screening Unit was made here in West Australia. As well as being proud of that fact and showing how Way Ahead we are, it also creates jobs for fellow workers. An arcle which heading says and I quote “Lions lead charge against skin cancer” with photos appears on Page 10 of the April-May 2017 Australian Lion issue. In it you will see W Screener PDG Colin Beauchamp who, with W overland Driver PDG Darrel Mainard, were funded to aend by the Lions Medical Research Foundaon to assist South Australia Lions on this MOMENTOUS occasion. You may well ask “what about the W Districts”? Easy! If you go onto our Website www.lionscancerinstute.org.au, click on Skin Screening you will see all the dates for 2017. There has been and will be changes due to some Clubs cancelling or Screeners not being available … we rely solely on our qualied Lions Screeners or some GP’s who donate their valuable me to assist us. Subject to an interview we would always welcome more Screeners willing to be trained. As you can see on the 2017 Skin Screening programme there is an extensive screening drive coming up for the north of WA. It commences on the 5th July and goes right up to Karratha where the Coach will be at the Lions Club FeNaclng weekend and then comes down via Newman to Meekatharra. This trip has taken some organising by our Commiee, especially with the availability of Drivers and Screeners. We do appreciate Clubs who have come on board to assist us and, if your Club would like a screening in the future, please complete the Screening Applicaon on the Website, realise 2017 is now lled. I would like to menon that previously we have visited and screened with the Van at Derby, Fitzroy, Halls Creek, Wyndham, Kununurra and Broome. Finally we are hoping you will / or have remembered us when assessing your end of year donaons. Even though we have volunteers from our Lions organisaon we do have countless expenses otherwise eg maintenance, fuel, accommodaon etc to name a few.
