    Melvin Jones Fellowship recipient - Chris Wicksteed

    A social event at the home of one of the club’s charter members, Lion Chris Wicksteed (and wife Lion Diane) provided the anticipated cover for a couple of surprise presentations of Melvin Jones Fellowships to two of the club’s very deserving members in March 2018. Both these gents were very humbled and somewhat overwhelmed by the recognition they so greatly deserve when presented with their awards by District Governor Elect Beverley Hawkins.

    Lion Chris is a Charter Member of the club – which was formed in 1984 – and is one of only two remaining as current members. His service record includes three terms as President and seven as Secretary; a pretty impressive track record in anyone’s language.

    Chris has always been an active member of Baldivis Lions Club, contributing to the management and direction of the club in his many years of membership. Whenever manpower was needed at a project Chris has always made himself available as well as and providing whatever gear was necessary to do the job.

    Throughout his years in Lions Chris has been supported by his wife Diane who has always assisted wherever possible.

    You can read about the second recipient in the next item.

    Melvin Jones Fellowship recipient - David Scott

    Lion David has been a member of the Baldivis Lions since September 1994, and his service record includes six terms as Treasurer and two as President.

    David is always the first to volunteer when manpower is needed and with many projects also supplying the necessary materials and equipment to complete the job. When not in an executive role, David has always contributed to the management of the club as director or Membership Chairman. He always studies the minutes closely and is never afraid to offer alternative ideas or plans. For the last two years David has taken on the job of Christmas Cake Chairman and done a wonderful job of organising outlets for cake sales and managing the distribution of cakes.

    David’s wife Carolyn has also made a huge contribution and supported David throughout, especially in his roles as Christmas cake Chairman and Treasurer.

    Kleenheat Sponsorship - check out our new signage!

    The club would like to thank Kleenheat for their grant which has enabled the club to purchase new, robust signage for its monthly community market.

    These signs help to provide the club with a more professional image, are easy to erect and store, and are solid enough to last the distance.

    Thank you Kleenheat!

    Superkids, Superheroes Scooter Ride Bridgetown to Perth Children's Hospital


    The Lions Club of Jandakot Lakes provided dinner and breakfast for the Superkids, Superheros when they overnighted at Woodman’s Point Discovery Park on Saturday the 8th of September 2018.

    A special Bridgetown family had their world torn apart when their precious 8 year old son lost his battle with childhood cancer.

    In their son's honour, even before he passed away, Kim and Simon Kane along with some of the locals from Bridgetown started their fundraising for “Kids with Cancer”.

    For the past 3 years Kim, Simon and a bunch of supporters from Bridgetown have ridden motorised scooters from Bridgetown to PMH (this year Perth Children’s Hospital) fundraising along the way

    Over the last 3 years the 9 day trip has raised over $150,000.00 for Kids Cancer Research.

    Well done to all those involved!

    Meet Clarrie, our latest recruit!

    Clarrie the Lion is the latest addition to the resources available for clubs. He has already appeared at a few Lions events since arriving in WA recently, and is shared by W1 and W2 clubs.

    Clarrie appeared at the Baldivis Bunnings community event on Saturday 28 July 2018 and was a great drawcard for young and old alike.

    The dates for the 2018 Dryandra Lions ‘Olympics’ Challenge Weekend have been set for the 20th / 21st October and will again include the Dryandra Boards AGM on Saturday 20th October at 2:00pm, where we will break from the games for all Members to attend.

    Your club could be taking home the coveted 'dunny seat' trophy, proudly displayed here by members of Atwell club, winners of the 2017 competition.

    The Entry Fee of $5.00 per person/ member to take part will remain unchanged and is required to cover any costs involved for prizes, games materials etc. and needs to be forwarded with your Entry Form (attached below) to the Lions Club of Port Kennedy.

    All the accommodation arrangements for the Cabins, Currawong Nissan Huts / Dormitory Complex and Caravan Area will be handled through the Port Kennedy Lions Club, with NO Accommodation Fees being charged on the Friday and Saturday nights for Lions and friends attending the AGM and competing in the ‘Lions Olympic’ Games.

    Each Club will need to contact PDG Alan Hawkins to book their accommodation arrangements for the weekend.

    Allowance has been made for caravans / camper trailers to be set up in an area behind the Nissan Huts, with no on-site power available. Tents will NOT be allowed to be set up in the Dryandra Village area, as there are specific Camping Areas allocated within the Dryandra Woodlands National Park.

    East Fremantle Lions Markets

    East Fremantle Club has obtained approval from the Town of East Fremantle to conduct a market on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

    The location is a park on the southern shore of the Swan River, at Norm McKenzie Reserve, 85 Riverside Rd, East Fremantle and it will be open 9:30 to 2:00pm.

    Details (and Application Form) can be found on their website http://eastfremantle.wa.lions.org.au or downloaded from the link below.

    The markets are being supported by Booragoon and Fremantle Clubs, but any other LIONS who are interested (and enjoy) markets are welcome to enquire, and earn $ revenue for their own club through their participation.


    Please check with East Fremantle LIONS for details and how it works …. Someone who can help with bookings etc will be especially welcome to enquire, and they of course will be a shoe-in for participation on the day of the events as well.

    The picture shows an aerial view of the location.

    Stall-holder enquiries are welcome, and not for profit organisations will be welcome with special consideration; for example, our friends at Rotary will have a spot promoting their “Shelterbox” programme for disaster relief.

    We seek LIONS support in attendance, and even just helping hands (and minds) to make this new market a success for many years to come.

    Contact: Alan Springett, on behalf of East Fremantle LIONS club,
    a.springett@optusnet.com.au 0402 499 049.
