    July 2014 - JUNIOR PUBLIC SPEAKERS

    The annual Kiewa/Tangam Lions Club Junior Public Speaking Competition took place at the Community Centre on Monday July 7th . This was the Club Final for the 5/6 and 3/4 sections of the competition and the delivery of speeches from the contestants was exceptional.

    Representing the 5/6 ‘s were Maggie Heffernan and Rory McClure while Paris Weller and Maddison Coulston represented the 3/4’s. The topic for the 5/6’s was ‘A Toast to Someone You Admire from your Community’ and Ray Rolfe and Imogen Wallace were the centre of attention from Rory and Maggie. The 3/4 ‘s had to, from a tourist’s point of view, tell us about an Australian Holiday. Port MacQuarie and Port Douglas were the chosen destinations and both girls certainly sold their holiday venues really well. Of course there can be only one winner from each section and Maggie and Maddison were the ultimate winners. But of course they all were winners and the Lions Club indeed showed their enjoyment of their speaking, and the evening as a whole ,with a huge round of applause.

  • Cohuna LEOS Visit Walwa

    On Sunday 9th February members of the Cohuna LEO Club travelled by mini bus up to the Bushfire effected area of our District. Their aim, to visit the small school of Walwa and check in on the students there.

    They had tea with the school Principal Steve, parents and students cooked by the local Lions Club on Sunday night.

    The group camped a the local Riverside Caravan Park in a tent, this was a bit of a challenge as the rain had started early in the day and did not ease off until well into Monday.

    On Monday morning they joined with the school for breakfast, again supplied by the Lions Club. They took new school backpack, filled with lots of items needed to start the new school year, pens, books, coloured pencils, rulers, texter pens, lunch box and drinker and lots more to donate to the students. They also took along gift boxes of personal items, such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste and brush, combe and hair brush. Along with new books and garden equipment.

    As a joint project on Monday they made up new garden beds and planted lots of succulents as a new beginning.

    They also had the opportunity to visit the Blaze Aid camp in Jingellic where Eugene the camp coordinator explained how Blaze Aid worked and who the volunteers carry out their work.

    They also travelled onto the Primary School at Khancoban to visit the students there who had been impacted by the bushfires as well. Again they left lots of gifts and books for the school.

    Special thanks to the Walwa Jingellic Lions Club, especially Shirley Cheshire, who looked after them so well.

    Bushfire Fundraising Event

    On Sunday 2nd February PDG Norm and Cabinet Secretary Lee travelled to Marong at the invitation of the Lions Club of Maiden Gully Marong (V 1-4), representing District V6.

    The Lions of Maiden Gully Marong had organised a family fun day as a fundraiser for both Lions Districts V3 and V6 as the Districts impacted by the devastating Christmas New Years Bushfires. There was lots to do, Jumping Castles, old Fire trucks to investigate and CFA and SES members on hand to give you some information on being Fire Ready. In case the fires come our way!

    While there we had the pleasure of meeting Captain Koala and Penny Platypus who were entertaining the kids.

    The main event was a cricket match between the Marong Footballers and Cricket team, there was some really great hits out to and over the boundary by both teams, at the end of the 20 overs each, it was a draw. A super Over saw the Footballers win!! All in good fun and they raised lots of money with people betting on the game. We didn’t win any of the raffles, or the Helicopter flight over Bendigo, but had a great day. Should have taken sun hats as it got quite hot.

    We’d like to thank PDG Ross Woods for his invitation and the hospitality of the Maiden Gully Marong Lions who looked after us very well.

    The final tally isn’t in yet but I’m sure it will be put to good use once received.

  • BUSHFIRE DONATIONS

    To all Lions, Leos and Lioness – MD201
    As we are all aware, the current bushfire crisis has impacted so many areas around of our country. The support of Clubs, individuals and organisations has been incredible which has enabled Lions to be at the forefront in supporting those impacted.
    In Australia, we are lucky to have the support of our two Lions Foundations – the Australian Lions Foundation and our Lions Clubs International Foundation who have already provided significant funding support to help the victims.
    Both the Australian Lions Foundation and Lions Clubs International Foundation are working together to ensure that support is provided quickly and direct to all areas. ALF and LCIF have already provided significant funding to our Districts and will continue that with increasing support.
    We ask that all Clubs continue to support our Foundations instead of general community funds as we know and control where all the support goes. Clubs and the public know the integrity of how Lions deal with donations as all funds collected go where they are intended.
    Both Foundations are asking for your continued support which will enable Lions in the affected areas to help those who have lost their homes and livelihoods. You can make a difference!
    Please give your consideration and support to both our own Foundations.
    Donations can be received as follows:
    AUSTRALIAN LIONS FOUNDATION LTD
    Direct Deposit to:
