    Ross Parkinson asked about the matter of the funding of the project, with the current District programme being managed by Marilyn Millar. The method of funding will not change, rather the funds will be channelled through the LMRF. The LMRF will take on a sponsorship programme to raise funds for a medical bus. IPDG Rhys advised that the group were to apply for a $100K LCIF grant, to be matched on $ for $ basis by funds raised by the LMRF through the 2 Districts. Harry Tillyer asked for a rough estimate of costs associated with the best scenario to meet the needs of the project. At this stage, the committee are favouring a truck and trailer set up, but all other avenues are also being investigated. IPDG Rhys expects that $175K capital will be required. It is expected the 2 Districts would be able to raise these funds, together with the LCIF grant. There is a possibility that the RAA will be able to sponsor the project to meet on-going running costs.

    ACTION

    congratulations to them. The Youth Exchange programme represents an excellent opportunity to host an overseas person, as a representative of Lions and welcome them to our communities. Leos – Dave welcomed Katerina – she will be attending Cabinet Meetings next year as an observer. Peace Poster – a great project. Please remember to advise Willy Weidenhofer if your Club is participating in this project. At the District C1 Convention, a popular choice award was provided to the best Peace Poster as voted by the Convention delegates. Mobility – continues along well. Lions Quest is still in the process of being upgraded, and is now being “Australianised”. It is not expected to be up and running until the 2016/17 year. As such DGE Dave is not appointing a District Chairman for this portfolio in 2015-16. Youth of the Year – District C1 conducted their District Final at their Convention. It seemed to be very successful. Ann Hughes noted that only 4 Clubs hold their Club finals prior to Christmas – holding a District Final at the District Convention would present some difficulties for Clubs and Schools, even if the aim is admirable. Ann noted there are now penalty points in certain circumstances, either for speaking too long, or not for long enough. She reminded those present that the timing commences from the time of the utterance of the competitors first noise. Please remember to read the section in the YOTY manual regarding reserve judges, who are now are involved. Please remember to recognise the judges with a certificate and a small gift. Ann encouraged Clubs to invite people to attend the Finals, both Club and Region, by sending written invitations. IPDG Rhys asked if financial assistance is available for participants from Darwin. Ann advised that return airfares are paid by the District, and a Club (at least this year) will be billeted by Gambier City Lions.

    MOTION:

    That the Youth Co-ordinator’s reports are received. D Thomas / I Mahoney CARRIED

    25. Marketing Co-ordinator Wilf Nitschke As presented.

    There are some issues with the C2 News – the publication has been slow, in part due to IT issues. Wilf reiterated that Club news will be published.

    MOTION: That the Marketing Co-ordinator’s reports are received.

    W Nitschke / R Parkinson CARRIED

    26. Global Membership Team Co-ordinator Denis Haseldine As presented.

    Date and venues for Club Officer Training is being finalised, and he asked that Zone Chairmen encourage their Club Officers to attend. Activities reports – Zone Chairmen are encouraged to ask their Clubs to submit Activities reports. This is to be reiterated at the Club Secretary’s training.

    MOTION: That the Global Leadership Team Co-ordinator’s report is received.

    M Allinson / R Field CARRIED 12. General Business 28. 50/50 Pathway Programme 2VDGE Judy Glastonbury Per the attachment.

    DG Ron has appointed 2VDGE Judy as the co-ordinator for the 50/50 Pathways programme. The project is facilitated through both the GMT and GLT programmes. The District Committee is working with the MD Committee, and this group has developed a brochure. A High Tea was held after the Cabinet Meeting, raising money for Carolyn’s Chemo Caps project. Judy and the committee are encouraging clubs host a High Tea for International Women’s Day, on March 8.

    29. Digital Images for Aged Care Programme DGE Dave Thomas DGE Dave spoke in support of his report.

    DG Ron has agreed to write to the proponent agreeing for him to approach C2 Clubs. LC Noarlunga Morphett Vale are already participating in this project, albeit in a slightly different format.

    30. Lions Disability Policy Geoff Baker Geoff Baker spoke to his report. He advised he has been working on the Policy, rewriting

    it in terms of functionality, and has subsequently forwarded it to various people for comment.

    31. Report to the 201C2 Cabinet on the observation of

    poor Club management practice PDG Bob Radford

    MOTION: Cabinet Officers proactively encourage clubs to send their incoming Officers to the next Club Officer Training Sessions as a matter of priority.

    R Roberts / M Allinson CARRIED PDG Bob spoke in support of his report to Cabinet. He noted that on a number of occasions he has been asked to assist Clubs with problems that they have had. He feels that it is a terrible job that he has to do, and terrible what we do to each other. He requests that all members of the District Cabinet report issues with Clubs, rather than just leaving it to Zone Chairmen. He also asked that all Cabinet members encourage people to attend Club Officer training. Issues include: 1. Without fail this is always about a lack of understanding and adequate

    communication between the parties concerned, including poorly worded emails –

    pick up the phone and ring if you have an issue with another Club member.

    ACTION

    2. PDG Bob also believes that what brings the parties to this point is never the sole fault

    of any one person.

    3. The clubs that allow these issues are ones that do not follow basic meeting

    procedural requirements and are usually poorly chaired or at least, have been in the

    lead up to their difficulty.

    4. They are in conflict on occasion with some legal requirements.

    5. They are on occasion unaware of who their Public Officer is.

    6. Their constitutional requirements are not always met and or are overlooked.

    7. Treasurer’s reports are not in the best way presented to the members.

    8. The possibility of new members joining a club in turmoil is unlikely.

    9. The possibility of existing members resigning is high.

    10. Membership issues are sometimes openly discussed at regular club meetings. These

    are the province of the Board alone.

    11. An adequate balance of social other activities is not maintained.

    12. Club policy minutes or standing orders and changes to them not being circulated to all

    members.

    Alan Tregoweth thanked Bob for his past assistance. He noted that there is no point pushing problems to the background, hoping they will go away. Ivan noted that it is often difficult for Zone chairmen to observe these problems on official visits, so assistance of all Cabinet members is important. DGE Dave noted that there are moves at Multiple District level to address some of these problems via the GMT and GLT programmes.

    32. Youth of the Year Training Brian Williams/PDG Ron Pascoe/Ann Hughes Cab Sec Ross advised the Cabinet that the Cabinet Executive have noted the contents of

    the item from Brian Williams, and have decided not to take action at this point.

    33. Youth of the Year Invitation PDG Ron Pascoe Interviews to be held in the morning, with the event to be held at the Rambler Football

    Club, with plenty of parking available. District Final – hosted by Gambier City LC. 28/3/2015 - a general invite will be forwarded shortly via Cab Sec Ross.

    34. District Centennial Co-ordinator Melinda Fogden Centennial Service Challenge currently underway. Apparently there will also be a

    Centennial Membership Challenge. Judy advised that Clubs need to be careful to ensure that they are reporting Centennial project There will be a series of celebrations in the coming 4 years. Clipsal 2017 official charity investigation – a joint committee between C1 and C2 has been formed to develop the expression of interest to Clipsal to be the official charity. Lions will offer a giant community health screening – skin cancer screening, prostate cancer, eye screenings etc. Support is requested from the health programme chairmen to assist. Frank has noted that Lions are not a registered charity – and asked that we are careful how we promote ourselves. Any funds raised will need to be channelled through a

    Page 9

    ACTION

    Foundation. Melinda has requested that the DG write to all Clubs asking them to appoint a Centennial Chairman, as a liaison person for Melinda, and to encourage participation in the Centennial Challenges. Ivan Mahoney noted that the Zone 11 Clubs are working together to form a programme of events for 2017.

    35. District Convention 2016 2VDG Bryan advised the Cabinet that the District Executive received 2 nominations, one

    each from Lions Club of Victor Harbor Port Elliot and Lions Club of Mount Gambier, to host the 2016 Convention. The District Executive have no doubt that both Clubs would be very capable of hosting the Convention, however recommend to the Cabinet that the cost for the 2016 Convention by the Lions Club of Victor Harbor Port Elliot.

    MOTION: That the Lions Club of Victor Harbor Port Elliot be invited to host the 2016 Convention.

    B Hearn / D Virgo CARRIED

    35. Multiple District Dues Increase DGE Dave Thomas Notes from Bruce Unwin, National Treasurer, in support of a MD fee increase:

    INCREASE FEES. WHY? At the recent Council of Governors meeting it was brought to our attention that the financial position of the Multiple District (Lions Australia) is deteriorating. Income is not keeping up with expenses for a number of reasons. The Multiple District is the administrative arm of Lions in Australia and it facilitates and supports the efforts of our members in the Clubs and Foundations who perform community service – locally, nationally and internationally. The Multiple District does not raise monies from the public. Membership of the Multiple District is decreasing and has now dropped below 27,000 (down from 31,823 in 1990 and 27,790 in 2010) and this has resulted in a significant reduction in dues income. Of course, in this time our costs have increased steadily, in fact, real costs have risen faster than CPI. The bottom line is, we are on the bread line. Membership numbers are always under pressure and costs continue to rise. Our National Treasurer presented five year financial projections to the Council of Governors which indicate that, unless we can reverse the trend, the position of the Multiple District will become critical in the near future. With no central body how long do you think we as Lions Clubs would exist?? THE FIX !!! Firstly we must work on INCREASING MEMBERSHIP. If we all make a concerted effort on retaining the members we have, as well as continuing to find new members, the increased income from dues will help our bottom line. However, in the short term, A FEE INCREASE IS IMMINENT. A Motion is being brought to the 2015 National Convention in Newcastle to increase dues by $4.94 per member per annum. This equates to one cup of coffee per member per year. The following two years will also see increases of $3.00 per member per annum (less than a cup of coffee each year), and then CPI increases each year. Fellow Lions, the projections put together by our National Treasurer indicate that if we don’t take action NOW our national body is in danger of becoming insolvent – a situation

    Page 10

  • Lions Clubs International Multiple District 201, District C2 Minutes of the Cabinet Meeting held 7 February 2015 Page 10 of 10

    ACTION

    to be avoided at all costs. If this motion fails there may be no Lions in Australia in ten years’ time. What a shame! I urge all delegates attending the Newcastle Convention to support this Motion as the future of our national organisation depends on it.

    35. PDG Corinne Stone Awards Cab Sec Ross advised the Cabinet of an email received from PDG Trevor Jacobs,

    requesting a review of the naming of the Stonie Awards. PDG Trevor feels that the naming of them as Stonies does not reflect the true nature of the lady, nor her contribution to our organisation. The Cabinet noted that the application forms for these awards recognises Corinne Stone, in fact they are named the Corinne Stone Memorial Award. The abbreviation to Stonies is a colloquial term. The full name of the award will be reflected in the 2015/16 Directory.

    13. Next Meeting The next meeting will be held on Saturday 23 May 2015 in Waikerie.

    Joe Vikor will pass on some information to Cab Sec Ross regarding accommodation. The meeting will probably be held in the Lions Den on the Waikerie Riverfront.

  • Purpose

    50/50 Pathway is the name of a Lions Clubs project that encourages all Australians to

    join Lions and serve their community

    The project's purpose is to increase Lions membership demographics to better reflect the

    Australian population through age, gender and cultural diversity.

    Project Profile

    As a result of the Women's Workshop conducted immediately following the ANZI Pacific

    Forum at the Gold Coast in September 2011, participants Ann Eldridge and Robyn

    Falloon were interested in exploring programs which could stimulate interest in raising

    the level of membership in Lions Clubs in Australia – particularly of women, young

    people and young families.

    Lions Clubs in Australia make up 19 distinct Districts. Each District has a District Global

    Membership Team (GMT). District representatives of the GMT teams met together and

    the way was paved to formulate strategy plans and budgets. The 50/50 Pathway Project

    Team commenced work in 2012.

    The 50/50 Pathway Logo:

    The symbolic Lions logo is encompassed by:

    • the elegant letter "V" representing vitality and vision

    • 50/50 signifies balance and diversity which generates new energy and new thinking.

    Page 19

  • • the name "Pathway" - we have identified a need to create recognisable Pathways into

    Lions – especially for women and young people, many of whom are unaware that they

    CAN join Lions

    • the figure reaching forward represents regeneration and growth

    • and the inclusion of the words “enlighten; empower; encourage" bring positive

    nuances in reference to Lions throughout our communities.

  • 50-50 Pathway Activity overview

    The program consists of, but is not limited, to the following activities.

    1. Internal forums where workshops are held with existing members. These workshop talk about the

    program and promote change within clubs.

    2. External Symposiums which work with local councils and other service groups in an area to attract

    non lions to a project in a community that they can help with in some way.

    3. Business Breakfasts or events – Organisation of a breakfast or events attracting business women to

    come together, raise awareness and join a club.

    4. Family Fun Days – promote an activity in the community which brings together existing Lions clubs

    to run a fun day for women and families which will raise money, raise awareness, promote Lions and

    encourage membership.

    5. Special Interest groups – Be on the lookout for groups of women and families who can come

    together with their interests and form a group of Lions – such as a Quilting group which also raises

    money from the sale of their handiwork etc.

    6. Training- Work with the GLT to hold leadership training sessions which will give more women and

    other people confidence to take on leadership roles within their clubs. Presentation skills and

    Running Meetings are two suggested training workshops

    7. High Tea on International Women’s Day – Hold a high tea promoting Lions and fundraising for

    women’s causes. Invite non lions to attend and have guest speakers which will encourage and

    promote community activity.

    8. Community Connector meeting which is a hybrid of an internal forum and external symposium

    Note that the first five dot points are points that can easily be undertaken by individule Clubs ond

    Zones.

    Role of the MD 201 Lions 50 50 Pathway Committee

    1. Continue to update the website and social media which will promote all activities involving the

    Pathway

    2. Ensure use of standard branding and materials

    3. Continue fundraising through pin sales

    4. Write and send out the syllabus material for all the events

    5. Train the trainer material – write a program to train people in each District

    6. Encourage each District to have a Lions 50 50 Pathway team that will run the program within their

    District and perhaps across Districts

    7. Continue to provide statistics showing movement across the country.

    This program is not a panacea for increasing membership and we will not see instant results. In fact it is a

    hybrid of existing concepts that are presented in a different way.

    Part 9 – Executive Reports and Recommendations

    Report No 01

    Report Date Report for the Cabinet Meeting 23rd May, 2015

    Officer District Governor Ron Sargent

    Portfolio District Governor

    I am pleased to report by the end of March Kath and I have visited 55 Clubs with Dave and Bryan visiting 7 more on my behalf. As well as this, we have had the pleasure of attending 5 Birthday parties – a 50th at Alice Springs, another 50th at Renmark, and Naracoorte, a 30th at Irymple, and a 25th at the McLaren Districts Club. What an experience this has all been. I guess we are all insular within our own Club, and have very little knowledge of what is going on around us until we get the opportunity that Kath and I have had this year.

    At the time of writing this report I can tell you that we are exactly the same in numbers as we were at the beginning of this Lions year. That is 1520 members. By the time this report is published 4 will be added as a result of a Branch Club formed at Mt. Compass. A further 14 will have been added as a result of a Branch Club at Katherine. I was hoping to fly to Katherine and perform the Charter in this year but the most likely date is now the 1st July.

    Denis Haseldine has done a magnificent job, together with his Membership team in making these two Branch Clubs possible. A further one being worked on is at Glenelg.

    It is also likely that individual Clubs will show an increase in numbers. Only a few days ago I was told that a further 5 wish to join my own Club of Goolwa. This Club has grown from 27 some two years ago, to 36 now and soon to be 41 or 42. It goes to show how important it is to have the right members, and the right membership Chairman. I say the right members realising most are. Just occasionally a person is accepted by the board of a Club who proves their down fall and the reason for members leaving.

    The other that is so important is the right projects, and donating to that right project. Just to give one example, Broken Hill provided finance to the local Hospital for a “Cuddle Cot” to be used for still born babies. This gives the parents, and perhaps Grand Parents more time to spend with their baby before it is removed. I had the privilege of inducting 3 young ladies who had heard of this project, and were inspired to join as a result.

    Another hosted by my Club was “Voice of the Youth” which is run on similar lines to the Youth of the Year excepting that it is for Primary aged young children. Six young ladies participated, and it was interesting to hear their thoughts, particularly on social media, and even cyber bullying. One young girl said that some even think it funny. Obviously she did not think this way.

    The last sentence makes me so aware that our Club Presidents and leading members need training. If not this year please all encourage your Club Officers to attend training next year. Having visited so many Clubs, many Presidents do a great job but others need help and could have done much better if they had received such training.

    Only recently an email came through from our International President Joe Preston advising that world-wide we have now passed the 1.4 million members. This is a first for 15 years. Australia is a few short of what we were at the beginning of this year, and this will be discussed again at the next Council meetings to be held in Newcastle. I expect to be able to expand on this at our Cabinet meeting.

    At this stage, I must thank all those who have supported me, during this year. It has been an excellent one. I was selected to be your future District Governor at the Renmark Convention. It was a job that I never thought I was up to, but with the support of so many excellent members I believe we have achieved most that we set out to do.

    Report Date 8/5/15 Officer Dave Thomas

    Portfolio District Governor Elect

    I have just travelled back from Newcastle where I attended both the 2015 MD Convention and had my last three days of DG training on Aussie soil. My next step towards DG takes place in a few weeks time when I travel to Honolulu where myself and 18 other DGE’s from Australia join nearly 800 DGE’s from around the world for our last 3 days training and on the 1st of July we will be officially installed as DG’s in our fantastic Lions Organisation. From then on it is action stations and into a year that all previous DG’s describe as one of the best years of mine and Margie lives.

    On this point, I would ask all Lions members who have the appropriate qualifications to give some serious thought to taking a similar course of action and consider nominating for the position of 2VDG at the Tatachilla Convention in October this year. It is a great challenge and experience and one where you can make a difference and further help our District to progress. Please feel free to talk with me if you want further information.

    On the subject of promotions to higher positions in Lions, I also would like to advise you that at next year’s MD Convention in Echuca, there will be a vote for the position of International Director for the Constitutional Area Seven of which we are a part, along with New Zealand, Indonesia and Pacific Islands. Australia will have two consecutive periods to elect an International Director, and I urge some of our more senior and qualified Lions in 201C2 to also consider this challenge and have a go. This is not an easy position and there is a lot of travel both in our area and the wider world wide Lions areas BUT what a great experience it would be. It is many years since there has been an International Director from South Australia, so give it a go.

    I will present a verbal report covering the goals and aims for the year ahead at the Waikerie Cabinet meeting.

    Officer Bryan Hearn

    Portfolio 1st Vice District Governor Elect

    Leadership

    Details of the coming Lions year incoming officers training has been distributed to all clubs. I would urge all relevant incoming officers regardless of experience, to attend at least one of these sessions. Members with prior experience in a position are encouraged to contribute to the content of a training session thus making the whole presentation much more inclusive which, hopefully, will deliver much better outcomes.

    All incoming officers have taken on a leadership role within their respective clubs and they are to be congratulated on accepting this responsibility. Part of being a successful leader is the development of other leaders.

    Leadership does not come naturally to most of us. This raises the old question of “Are leaders born or are they made.” I guess the truth lies somewhere between these two extremes. I personally believe that regardless of what might be in our genes, attending development forums and training institutes will be of benefit to all members.

    Wanting to be successful is a great starting point for all incoming club and/or district officers. This desire should provide the necessary impetus that encourages members to take the relevant steps that will bring about the success that is sought after. It stands to reason that not everybody will be as successful as they might wish to be. This may be due to a whole number of matters including many which we have no control over such as health etc.

    Leadership training can be undertaken via a number of mediums. It is not all about forums and Institutes. Relevant training can be undertaken via the Lions Leadership Resource Centre where a large selection of topics exit for study by members. Leadership podcasts can be listened to. These include many topics relevant to club members. Webinars are regularly held on a wide variety of topics and these are a great source of information.

    To access many of these facilities is as easy as visiting the Lions Learning Centre within the Leadership Resource Centre where you will need to create a personal account in your own name. All you need for this is your Lions membership number and a password of your own choosing.

    Go to it folks.

    Before you become a leader, success is all about growing yourself.

    When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.

    Salutations Cabinet Colleagues.

    The Multiple District Convention at Newcastle was very successful with 982 attendees. The organising committee deserve our highest commendation, as they worked tirelessly to ensure our comfort and enjoyment, while many of them were still to return their flood damaged properties for clean-up.

    The credential report recorded the following result from District C2.

    District C2 was very ably represented by two fine young ladies.

    Lily Thornley represented Gambier City Lions Club in the Youth of the Year National Final. Although unsuccessful, Lily proved a very worthy finalist.

    The Leo of the Year was announced as Katerina Blekic from the Sunraysia Leo Club. Furthermore, Leo Katerina also won the public speaking competition.

    We are indeed, very proud of these fine young ladies. Our sincerest congratulations go to Lily and Katerina.

    This report is my last to the District C2 Cabinet. I am retiring from Cabinet after 13 continuous years, during which time I have undertaken the Cabinet Secretary role for six years and Assistant Cabinet Secretary for two years.

    It has been an absolute pleasure to be associated with our fine Cabinet Officers over the years and thank you individually and collectively for your cooperation and goodwill. I wish to express my sincerest appreciation of our District Governors, who have had the confidence to enlist me as the Cabinet Secretary. I am indeed privileged by their consideration and the opportunity to serve the C2 Cabinet. I have benefitted immensely from the knowledge and skills I have gained. I am absolutely inspired by the dedication on my Cabinet colleagues.

    May I wish Cheryle the very best for the years ahead as Cabinet Secretary. Furthermore, I thank her sincerely for her cooperation and goodwill over the years. CP is a generous and caring young lady who deserves our highest commendation.

    Finally I express sincerest appreciation to District Governor Ron Sargent for his consideration and cooperation throughout the year. Furthermore, I wish DGE Dave and his Cabinet team every success in 2015 – 16.

    Club issues 

    I concur with the advice provided at the last Cabinet meeting by PDG Bob Radford regarding membership in Clubs. Membership of  a Club  is  solely  the province of  the Board. Membership of  a member or potential member should NOT be discussed at Club meetings. 

    Unfortunately  I  have  had  to  provide  advice  on  a  number  of  occasions  this  year  to  Clubs  and  to  Zone Chairpersons  regarding membership  issues.  I  find  this  disappointing,  but  recognise  that  there  are  often personality clashes. Please encourage all Presidents Elect to undertake training, as  I know that this will be highlighted by 1VDGE Bryan is these sessions. 

    My mentor 

    I acknowledge and thank Ross Parkinson  for his outstanding service to this District over the past 13 years, with many of these contributing  in a stellar fashion as Cabinet Secretary and Assistant Cabinet Secretary.  I also  thank  Lioness  Sue  for her  steadfast  support of Ross, and  the  cheerfulness  in which  she answers  the phone at all times of the day and night! 

    Ross  has  been  a  source  of  inspiration  to me  in  the way he  quietly  goes  about  his  Lions  business,  and  a mentor in many ways of the Lions organisation. I will miss his advice on Cabinet matters in the future. 

    Thank you Ross – you are truly a magnificent Lion, and a true friend to many. 

     

     

    I  also  thank DG  Ron  for  the  pleasure  of  serving  this  great District  in  such  a  challenging  role,  and  to  all members of the Cabinet and District Chairmen for their support. I look forward to working with many of you in the coming year. 

     

    Cheryle Pedler 

     

    RECOMMENDATION: That the Executive reports are received.

    Financial the Club is sound. Club concerned about current membership numbers, feels that it has limited opportunities to increase membership. Only wants new members who are prepared to ‘put in’ and be active.

    Working well with local school (Macclesfield). Sees public relations as an oppotunity. Working co-operatively with Mt Barker on the Carolyn’s Chemo caps project. Have shelved plans on working to establish a Leo’s club due to lack of opportunities. Will not be attending Club officer’s information session, no new officers, and attended last year’s session.

    Any special requirements (training, GLT, GMT?)

    Will need ongoing support in Membership opportunities

    General Comments

    Zone took on a new community project where the clubs will be buying a book called “The Kanceroo” which is aimed at trying to help people with cancer understand what is going on. The book has been written by a local Lion who has had to deal with cancer himself. The books will be distributed to schools and libraries etc free of charge. Cost of the book is $16 with $6 per book going to childhood cancer research.

    We had PDG Ron Pasco give a run down on ALF Grants and Awards that are available and what the criteria’s are for each grant.

    Meeting was started at 3.00pm and finished at 5.00pm then we had an evening meal together with our partners. The idea of some fellowship after the meeting worked very well.

    Membership for the zone is up by 2 which has been a great effort given some of the issues some clubs have gone through and are now moving ahead.

    I thank DG Ron for asking me to be on his cabinet. It has been challenging, very rewarding and have caught up with and met a lot of good people along the way. It has been a privilege to serve, thank you

    The Clubs in Zone 11 are continuing to work with council to have a project for centennial of Lions in 2017.

    The Lioness Club have continued to have a strong presence in our local community ,their involvement with delivering Library books to the housebound, sunset kitchen and helping new migrants in our community with reading are great community projects.

    After almost 10 years on cabinet I see many of the clubs that have problems are ones that do not follow meeting procedure or have members with big egos that do not want to see change in their clubs.

    Congratulations DG Ron on your leadership this year, I have enjoyed being on you cabinet.

    This is a club that has been experiencing membership problems for some 2.5years dating back to personality conflicts in the club and whilst Past President Peter Marks has done a good job of bonding the club last year, they are still finding it hard to attract members.

    Barmera Lions, being small in numbers, are very active on the ground – Projects for this year include; Barmera Markets; Blue bird 50th anniversary; Light the Night cancer fundraiser; Christmas Pageant; Christmas party for Barmera senior citizens; Australia Breakfast; plus the Barmera RV Park.

    Nominations for 2015-16 were filled with Lion PP Peter Marks once again taking the helm. I wish him and the club all the best for next year.
