1 201W1 DISTRICT NEWSLETTER www.201w1.lions.org.au www.facebook.com/LionsInWesternAustralia email@example.com HUMANITARIAN SERVICE, DISASTER RELIEF, MEDICAL RESEARCH, SIGHT & THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF YOUTH WE SERVE NOVEMBER 2018 POWER OF ACTION ROUNDUP It is already November 2018 and there are a lot of preparaons for Have A Go, Diabetes Awareness, Children of Courage, Youth of the Year, Lions Awareness Day, Execuve meengs, Cabinet Meengs, club project acvies: sausage sizzles, informaon evenings, social gatherings, including when we go about our daily rounes. 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 pathnders and forerunners. The horizon is not an unreadable limit, but an evolving desnaon 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 Internaonal President Gudrun Yngvador. Courage does not always roar. Somemes 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 organizaon, is extremely urgent. Please do not lose hope. Here is why: The famous Beatles were rejected by Decca Recording Studios, who said “we don’t like their sound…they 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 District’s GAT (Global Acon Team) member John Shute’s resignaon 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 posion is vacant. Please remember we are Quaternity: members, leaders, servants and promoters/marketers of our incredible organizaon. IMPROVING MEMBERSHIP VALUE How do we make every member feel that their contribuon 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 Newsleer and one of the entries will win dinner for 2 at Bistro Bellavista. Good luck everyone.

" Lions change people's lives every day, whether that be through conducng fundraising acvies to fund medical research or provide medical equipment, development opportunies and acvies for youth, supporng disadvantaged, elderly or inrm within our communies, protecng our environment or providing recovery support following natural disasters, Lions make a dierence every day."

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 presentaon will be done in December. DUNCRAIG LIONS CLUB Early Christmas for Bonnie Communied Inc is a Greenwood based organisaon which provides support for children with serious illnesses, the siblings and parents. Children spend long periods in hospital receiving treatment, siblings are oen cared for by friends and extended family members and the parents juggle family life between work/home/hospital. The Dial an Elf program provides praccal 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 gis 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 gis 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 decoraon to make a Christmas Wonderland at their home in Narrogin. The Duncraig Lions Club made a donaon of $100 through Communied Inc. and the request for decoraons was referred to Narrogin Lions Club in W2. We all hope that the early Christmas is very special for Bonnie and the family. Above - Bonnie

Email: email@example.com On the 24th of October the Lions Club of Noranda held a health informaon night for the community at the Morley Noranda Sports Club. The night included a presentaon from Lize Coetzee from ESIA on “What we need to know about our hearing” and Kevin Tadder from the Alzheimer’s foundaon on “Early signs and awareness of Alzheimer’s”. While we had a small turn out, both presenters were a wealth of knowledge and all who aended le the meeng beer informed regarding both medical condions. I believe most who aended were not aware that there is a link between a loss of hearing, demena and Alzheimer’s. The Noranda Lions thank all those who aended and our presenters for the excellent informaon provided. The importance of having both presentaon on the same night was highlighted during the presentaon as the do relate to each other.

14 LIONS AUSTRALIA PHOTOGRAPHY GRANTS GUIDELINES FOR CLUBS Lions are holding events all over Australia every day but so many good photo opportunies are passing us by. We understand that it is not always possible to capture good photos while in the midst of a busy acvity. 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 oen lack the appropriate images to really make an impact. Lions Australia MD201 Naonal Oce is therefore allocang budget for photography that can be used on applicaon 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 Naonal Oce, beneng our PR eorts 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 applicaon we receive. Therefore, specic guidelines will need to be met. We are looking for the most interesng and unique events – those where we can see some excing photo opportunies arising. We want to be able to use these photos for a range of dierent purposes for many years to come, so please consider this carefully when applying. Applicaon process Grants of up to $500 will be awarded to Clubs at the discreon of the Naonal Oce. Clubs will need to complete a detailed applicaon form and grants will be based on the quality and potenal impact of the event. The deciding factors will include: 1. Size of event 2. Potenal media interest Potenal photo opportunies – will the photos be suitable for use by the Naonal Oce for promoonal purposes/markeng collateral etc? Evidence of collaboraon and where possible, mulple Club, Zone or District parcipaon Hire of photographers The contract will be between MD201 Naonal Oce and the photographer. Clubs will need to supply the Naonal Oce with the contact details of their preferred local photographer. The MD201 Naonal Oce 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 specic 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 idened - 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 Naonal Oce.
