7 DUNCRAIG LIONS CLUB Generator on long term load to the Wanneroo-Joondalup State Emergency Service - Some me ago, the Duncraig Lions Club purchased a generator with a grant. Over me, the generator has not been used and it was oered to the Wanneroo-Joondalup SES on a long term loan basis. This is a win-win arrangement, the generator will be used to train the SES volunteers and available for use on emergency service operaons. The SES volunteers have helped with a number of acvies over the years, in parcular the Australia Day Big Breakfast at Percy Doyle SES volunteers Noel and Bill collected the generator on 4th October, with the assistance of several Duncraig members to get it loaded onto the SES ute. Duncraig Lions Bill Fleming and Izzy Siegwart served on the Judging Panel with Acng Principal Paul Fuller for the 2018 Speak Up program at the Glengarry Primary School on Wednesday, 19th September. School Coordinator Caroline Larkin arranges for each year group to put forward three students in the nal round. 18 students presented their speeches and the Judging Panel assessed these presentaons based on eye contact, facial expression, posture, enthusiasm, audience interest, arculaon, volume of voice, content and me. The 18 students were awarded medallions for their parcipaon, funded by the Duncraig Lions Club. Each student also receives a laminated cercate signed by President Helen Montgomery and the School Principal. This is a low cost, engaging project for the Duncraig Lions Club; and a worthy investment in the youth of today to build condence in public speaking.

The Convenon at Moora was a busy me, talking to Club representaves about reporng service acvies/hours on MyLCI. Aendance at Convenons, Meengs and Administrave hours can be reported on MyLCI. It is not too late to report the service acvies back dated for July, August and September. Clubs are encouraged to enter service acvies progressively throughout the month as acvies are completed. For example, if your Club has held a sausage sizzle, the number of Lions/hours, funds raised and people served will be known. If the prot from the acvity have been donated to a parcular cause, this can be reported also. For Club meengs, the number of members and the duraon of the meeng can easily be calculated, this data can quickly entered on MyLCI. Other on-going projects can be reported at the end of each month, with the number of Lions/hours etc as a monthly total. Thank you to the 30 Clubs who have reported on MyLCI so far this year.
