Hello, my fellow Lions, I wish to take the opportunity to
thank you all for the work you do in your community. It has
been a busy few months since I was appointed to the
posion of 2nd Vice District Governor of 201W1. It has been
a great experience for me to conduct club visitaons, I have
enjoyed meeng many Lions from various back grounds. It
has been interesng to see the variety of the projects being
done by the clubs. It was very apparent to me that all
members want to give back to their community. I would like
to thank the members of the clubs I have visited for their
hospitality and fellowship.
It is important to remember we are members of the largest
service organisaon in the world, over 1.4 million members.
Our internaonal President Lion Gudrun has a simple theme
We Serveand I believe this sums up the reason why we
all joined Lions. As Lions we serve our communies in many
ways, but the common theme is we help others that may be
less fortunate than ourselves.
Our DG Lion Luens theme is Accept Connect to Serveor
ACT this is about
accepng change and
communicang with each
other through new
technology through the
MyLion App. MyLion will
allow members to
connect with each other
and load projects for all
to see. I believe it will be
a good way to establish
partnerships with other
Lions and Clubs. The
stronger we are the more
we can achieve in our
We are encouraging clubs to collaborate and form
partnerships in projects and visit other clubs, share
knowledge and fellowship. I noted that some clubs are
working in partnerships or simply supporng other clubs by
aending events. It was also good to see clubs conducng
visitaons with other clubs. This is about good fellowship
and promotes.
Unfortunately, Lions are the best kept secret in Australia
and the world. I know most of us dont want to blow our
own trumpet but to get the communies support and
aract new members we must let the people know what
we do, what projects we are doing. As I said this will help
aract new members, but it will also promote Lions to the
community which will help when we conduct fund raising
The district goal this year is to start two new clubs with 25
members, this is achievable with your help, but it is
important that we also ensure our current members are
supported and are having fun, that when we go home aer
a project we feel that we have given back to the community
and had fun doing it.
Please could I reiterate that clubs refrain from subming
Mooras constuon to Consumer Protecon as
deciencies have been picked up that need to be corrected.
Correspondence has been circulated explaining the
situaon and a newly revised club constuon will be
circulated when available.
Remember the district is here to support clubs in your
acvies and administraon, but it is also important that
clubs let us know what they are doing, the projects you are
parcipang in. Please ensure your clubs required reports
are submied.
Once again, I thank you all for your eorts.
Mick Wainwright
2nd Vice District Governor

Your Club Secretary/Services Coordinator may have noced some changes on MyLCI in the My Lions Club tab, Select an
Acvity Type opon. This list has been reduced to align with the Global Services Framework, and likely preparing for the
introducon of MyLION for reporng from July 2019. The Acvity Type opons are:
Service Acvies:
Diabetetes, Hunger Relief, Vision, Environment, Childhood Cancer and Other.

If you regularly have an acvity, such as markets,
recycling, etc. you can set up a Signature Acvity in
MyLCI which makes the reporng task easier. Using a
Signature Acvity allows the pernent details to be saved
in the MyLCI system, to be retrieved when next reporng. When the acvity has been completed, the Signature Acviy
can be made inacve or deleted, so that it does not keep appearing on the selecon list.
Compleng these details helps our District, Mulple District and Lions Internaonal know the full extent of the amazing
service your Club is providing to the local and wider community.
If you need help to access MyLCI to report the Service Acvies from your Club, or to set up Signature Acvies, please let
me know. So far for this Lions year, the number of Lions Hours reported for the District is: 5122

Mark Tibbles: Ready Steady Golf!
The Vines Golf Club Match Commiee Meeng, on
14/08/2018, was the perfect occasion for Swan District
Lions Club Member, and Avid Golfer, Gavin Thomson, to
present a $500 cheque to Mr. Mark Tibbles of MT
Internaonal Golf Academy, in support of his Special Needs
Golf Academy called Ready, Steady Golf.
The Lions Club of Swan Districts has supported Mark over
the past 5 years and one of his students was sponsored by
the Club 3 years ago for the Lions Children of Courage
Mark began his program by coaching amputees and
expanded to children and adults with special needs. His
students have varied condions such as motor neuron
disease, ausm, Down Syndrome, M S and asthma. The
more able parcipants have a pathway towards entering
the Special Olympics.
Along with a colleague and a few volunteers, Mark spends
over 120 coaching hours per week with the RSG Program.
He has special needs adults at week day sessions and
children on the weekend. RSG relies on grants from the
Dept of Sport and Recreaon and Golng Foundaons.
Over the past year he has spent over $3k on the purchase
of modied golf equipment for his special needs program.
He is grateful for the SDLC assistance and we are proud to
be assisng RSG!

with their projects, and are greatly accepted, especially
in the smaller towns where the local Lions Clubs do not
have the numbers to carry out some of their projects
without great hardship.
Now this is where the Australian Lionsonoz Lions Club
would like to extend a hand or two to help these
struggling Clubs, where possible, when a member or a
few of our members know that they will passing
through their towns, they would be only too pleased to
oer a hand.
If you have a project where you think you could do with
an extra pair of hands or more, send your requests to
our Facebook editor and he will list them on our Facebook site for all members to see at: hps://
With the number of members on the move around this great country, you just may be able to get that assistance
you require with your projects.
Australian Lionsonoz members have been able to assist Clubs in their catering, wood chopping, hospitality and
other projects and now are assisng Clubs in their eorts to alleviate the dicules the drought is causing.
