  • Visit from Lions Club of Beachmere

    At our March dinner meeting we were fortunate to be joined by a number of members from the Lions Club of Beachmere. Following our usual delicious meal we all participated in some fun and frivolity with some spuds and trivia.

    The competition was fierce to build the tallest free-standing tower of spuds using just the spuds and toothpicks. Our tastebuds were tingled by a number of flavours of potato chips. Guessing the flavours was a little difficult. Who would have thought that bowling spuds could prove to be such a challenge. Dell's trivia challenge was thought provoking but caused one Lion to secretly bring out the mobile phone for answers.

  • Peace Poster Update

    PEACE POSTER

    A Celebration of Peace

    Please note the theme for this year's Peace Poster competition is “A Celebration of Peace”. I am including in this notice some extracts from Helen Campbell National Peace Poster Chair as a reminder to those Clubs who regularly support this project and as notification to those Clubs that will be participating in this project for the first time.

    There had previously been an indication (in the January Newswire) that the Peace Poster Kits (available from National Office at a cost of $20.00 (plus postage if applicable)) were already available for purchase. However I have been advised that there has been a delay in these arriving from LCI. We are of the understanding that these will be available by late February.

    For those Clubs that include the Peace Poster competition in their Club activitites, please purchase your PP Kit and begin the process of negotiating with your local Schools to gain their support and commitment to participate in this International Youth Project competition. There are a number of items which I wish to bring to your attention as a reminder as it is very disappointing to have to withhold an entry from judging at the District level due to non-conformance of the competition rules.

    Lioness Clubs can sponsor the contest through the sponsoring Lions Club. The Winner Sticker which is attached to all entries submitted, needs to show the Lions Club details. Also keep in mind that no words are allowed on the drawing. This is clearly stated in the rules and any entry with words included must be withdrawn from submitting for judging.

    For those Clubs who have not previously been involved in the PP competition, it is recommended that a member of your Club is appointed as PP Chair and the Club become involved in this International Youth competition. A visit to the MD Convention Peace Poster stand would be most beneficial.

    More information is available on the Lions Peace Poster website and the closing dates for last year are stated as a guidline for this current year. These will be updated for the current year shortly.

    I can be contacted by email desley.kelso@bigpond.com telephone 07 38513249 (voice message available) or mobile 0412 097670.

    Yours in Service,
