Charter member Barrie Weighell receives Melvin Jones Fellowship awardCharter member of the club in 1984, Barrie Weighell, was awarded the Melvin Jones Fellowship for his contribution to the club at the club’s Changeover dinner on 29 June 2019. Barrie has held several positions on the club’s board over the years including President, Secretary and Membership Chairman, completing his 31 years of service in 2015. Barrie’s vision for the club was for the creation of a community market that would provide a vehicle for the people of the Baldivis community to meet in a social, family atmosphere and provide opportunities for local traders. This vision became a reality late in 2012 and the Baldivis Lions Community Market has become one of the club’s major fund raisers and is still going strong on the first Saturday of each month.
Congratulations on your well deserved award Barrie!

Melvin Jones Fellowship recipient - Chris WicksteedA 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 ScottLion 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.
Another new memberCongratulations to Jenny Ballard, the latest edition to the Baldivis Pride in March 2018. Jenny has been sponsored by Carol Morrison and will be a great asset to the club as we continue to grow.
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.
