NOVEMBER 2018
POWER OF ACTION ROUNDUP
It is already November 2018 and there are a lot of
preparaons for Have A Go, Diabetes Awareness, Children
of Courage, Youth of the Year, Lions Awareness Day,
Execuve meengs, Cabinet Meengs, club project
acvies: sausage sizzles, informaon evenings, social
gatherings, including when we go about our daily rounes.
We are all busy and yet we are very courageous to pursue a
new course. Pursuing a new course is never easy. We need
to have the courage to do new things, to make decisions on
something that has not been done before and to be
pathnders and forerunners. The horizon is not an
unreadable limit, but an evolving desnaon that can be
reached through kindness and compassion. But we need
courage to try. Let us inhale courage and exhale fear.
Quoted from our amazing Internaonal President Gudrun
Yngvador.
Courage does not always roar. Somemes courage is the
quiet voice at the end of the day saying. I will try again
tomorrow.Mary Anne Radmacher
The harp is out again my fellow Lions and will not apologise
for it. More than ever before, our need to ask people,
strangers or otherwise, and invite to join our great and
largest organizaon, is
extremely urgent. Please
do not lose hope. Here is
why: The famous Beatles
were rejected by Decca
Recording Studios, who
said we dont like their
soundthey have no future
in show business.
The harp is to do with our
membership year to date
balance of 720 also. It is a
drop of 13, year to date.
Reluctantly, I have accepted our Districts GAT (Global
Acon Team) member John Shutes resignaon on the 8th
November, 2018. Therefore, I ask and challenge each one of
you to be our GMT (Global Membership Team) in your own
Clubs while this District posion is vacant. Please remember
we are Quaternity: members, leaders, servants and
promoters/marketers of our incredible organizaon.
IMPROVING MEMBERSHIP VALUE
How do we make every member feel that their contribuon
is important? Your club is unique and you have your own
ways of making this happen.
What are they? I challenge each member or members in a
Club as a group to come up with some ideas of how to do
these and send a photo with a story to my email address.
Each entry will be published in our next Newsleer and one
of the entries will win dinner for 2 at Bistro Bellavista.
Good luck everyone. District Governor 201W1 Luen Chicote

Member with a HR Drivers Licence to volunteer to take the
Hearing Bus to various events.
HEARING BUS TESTERS: An urgent appeal to any Lions
Member to volunteer as Testers. Full Training will be
provided to both the above posions. We would gladly hear
from any Lion who would like to be part of the Hearing Bus

Canning City hosted 6 dierent Lions clubs, who were invited
to join us at our Social Meeng on 23 October 2018 with our
guest speaker Darren from Green Batch. A meal was supplied
for all who aended. We all had a good night which was very
informave, and a lot of quesons were asked and answered.
Once the Green Batch business venture has successfully
launched Lions Clubs could support this venture through
engagement with the collecon and handling of the PET
(Polyethylene Terephthalate and it is best known as the clear
plasc used for water and soda bole containers} bole feed
stock required by the processing plant. Lions Clubs stand to
derive a signicant income from the collecon and handling
of these PET boles via this program and contribute to one
of Lions primary Global Causes – the environment.

sign for the Cancer Council of WA, Relay for Life event at the
HBF Arena in Joondalup ahead of the event on 19th October.

and tools to secure the bolts and bang in the pegs. Knot

WHAT DO LIONS DO - a "one liner statement" that could be used at projects and recruing displays
when we are asked "What do Lions do"?
" Lions change people's lives every day, whether that be through conducng fundraising acvies to fund medical research
or provide medical equipment, development opportunies and acvies for youth, supporng disadvantaged, elderly or
inrm within our communies, protecng our environment or providing recovery support following natural disasters,
Lions make a dierence every day." PDG John Muller Mulple District GST Area Leader

scholarship that the Lioness Club give each year to St Mary's Colleague in Broome for the students that are going onto to
years 11 & 12. The scholarship is not for the head of the school it is to help the students that want to go onto higher school,
chosen by the teachers who do not have the support or money for the extra things required over the next 2 years.
The scholarship valued at $1,000.00 which this year is split between 2 students. The school has the money and is used as
they feel is required.
We also do the same for the Broome Senior High School but that presentaon will be done in December.

Early Christmas for Bonnie
Communied Inc is a Greenwood based organisaon which provides
support for children with serious illnesses, the siblings and parents.
Children spend long periods in hospital receiving treatment, siblings
are oen cared for by friends and extended family members and the
parents juggle family life between work/home/hospital. The Dial an
Elf program provides praccal home help through a group of
volunteers, by way of meals cooked, washing and ironing done, etc.
The Warrior Mail program invites people to send mail and small gis
to the nominated children to help them cope with the me in hospital
or recovery.
It was through the Warrior Mail program that we became aware of
Bonnie who was receiving treatment for medulloblastoma. At that
me, members contributed cards and small gis to send to Bonnie. In
September 2018, we received sad news in that Bonnie had relapsed,
and had reached the point where there is no more treatment
available. The family wanted to make her last Christmas extra-special,
a call went out for nsel and decoraon to make a Christmas
Wonderland at their home in Narrogin. The Duncraig Lions Club
made a donaon of $100 through Communied Inc. and the request
for decoraons was referred to Narrogin Lions Club in W2. We all
hope that the early Christmas is very special for Bonnie and the
family.

On the 24
th
of October the Lions Club of
Noranda held a health informaon night
for the community at the Morley
Noranda Sports Club. The night included
a presentaon from Lize Coetzee from
ESIA on What we need to know about
our hearingand Kevin Tadder from the
Alzheimers foundaon on Early signs
and awareness of Alzheimers”.
While we had a small turn out, both
presenters were a wealth of knowledge
and all who aended le the meeng
beer informed regarding both medical
condions. I believe most who aended
were not aware that there is a link
between a loss of hearing, demena and
Alzheimers.
The Noranda Lions thank all those who
aended and our presenters for the excellent informaon provided. The importance of having both presentaon
on the same night was highlighted during the presentaon as the do relate to each other.
It was noted on the night that there are various trials being run and that Lions are welcome to take part.

understand that it is not always possible to capture good photos while in the midst of a busy acvity.
We live in a visual age where online or even printed content without a strong image to accompany it, can easily get lost.
We have many good stories to tell, but oen lack the appropriate images to really make an impact.
Lions Australia MD201 Naonal Oce is therefore allocang budget for photography that can be used on applicaon by
Clubs for professional photography at events.
Clubs will need to source a professional photographer in the area to cover the event. In turn, the photographs become
property of the Club and the Naonal Oce, beneng our PR eorts and helping us to build a library of high quality
images.
It is important to note that due to the large volume of events being held by Lions, it will be impossible to approve grants for
every applicaon we receive. Therefore, specic guidelines will need to be met. We are looking for the most interesng and
unique events – those where we can see some excing photo opportunies arising. We want to be able to use these photos
for a range of dierent purposes for many years to come, so please consider this carefully when applying.
Applicaon process
Grants of up to $500 will be awarded to Clubs at the discreon of the Naonal Oce. Clubs will need to complete a detailed
applicaon form and grants will be based on the quality and potenal impact of the event.
The deciding factors will include: 1. Size of event 2. Potenal media interest
Potenal photo opportunies – will the photos be suitable for use by the Naonal Oce for promoonal purposes/
markeng collateral etc?
Evidence of collaboraon and where possible, mulple Club, Zone or District parcipaon
Hire of photographers
The contract will be between MD201 Naonal Oce and the photographer. Clubs will need to supply the Naonal Oce
with the contact details of their preferred local photographer. The MD201 Naonal Oce will then liaise directly with the
photographer with regards to the contract.
Please note that only professional photographers will be hired. Photographers will also be provided with specic guidelines
so that we can ensure the photographs we receive are in accordance with our brand.
Photographing children and young people: There are currently no laws in Australia that prohibit the photography of
children in public spaces. That being said, there are circumstances where parents may not be comfortable with their
children having their photos taken, and this should always be acknowledged where possible.
Publishing photos of children or young people on social media: When it comes to publishing the photos online, there are
guidelines that need to be followed. Images of children that would enable them to be idened - for example, in a school
uniform, outside their house, or showing their name - should not be published online without the consent of both the child
(where able) and their parent or guardian.
Therefore, we advise Clubs holding events where children will be present to have a consent form available for parents/
guardians to sign. Please see consent form provided by MD201 Naonal Oce.
