Lions Awareness Day
This was a major new approach to lifting the profile in the communuity.
We set up next to the Information Centre and had a free sausage sizzle.
In conjunction, we had the Lions Eye Health camera there, run by District Chairman Wendy Hellebrand. This was a very worthwhile project as we were able to recommend to 8 people that they should have their eyes checked by an Optometrist.
We also spoke to a lot of people and explained about the Lions Club. A number took away the infornation sheet. Hopefully we will get some interest.
We will repeat this as we felt it was worthwhile.

Hearing Dog Presentation
We had 5 members, President Terry Kilsby, Phil Newey, Ray Radford, Ray Wood and Adrian Miles - and Lions Lady Judy Newy - who attended the Leopold Lions Charter anniversary meeting.
At that meeting, the guest speaker was the District Chairman for Lions Hearing Dogs, Robyn Atchison.
After Robyn's presentaion, the immaculately dressed president Terry presented Robyn with our cheque for $500 for the Hearing Dog program. All present at the meeting complimented Terry on his choice of the beautiful bow tie he wore. A Tail Twisters delight!

Good Friday Appeal
We supported the local efforts to raise money for the Ryal Childresn Hospital Appeal.
Our locval "bunny" (alias Lion Ray Radford) undertook one of his famous "bucket rattles" - a tin rattle is not good to Ray - he deals in buckets!!
Well - IT WORKED. He single haadedly raised an estimated !000 plus.
Lions Terryk. Alan B, Ian and Adrian sweated through a few hours of hard selling for the spinning wheel.
These efforts raised aa further $1285 for the appeal.
A good effort all round!!
Can we ask which one is the bunny? No? .... Ok
Lions Phil, Ray Radford and Adrian attended the annual Queenscliff Freemasons annual service in remembrance of the Unknown Soldier.
This is a very moving and very respectful service.
The Freemasons assisted the Lions Club at he Geelong Rodders day in February. After the service Lion Phil presented the Freemasons with a cheque and thanked their members for their assistance.
It is good for the Lions Club to forge relatiobships with other organisations within our community. It is more sifnificant as 2 of our members are also members of this Lodge.
