Club Charter

2016 - 2017
President Wayne Foran  -  Secretary Stephen Pearce  -  Treasurer Mark Hale

Tonight brings a close to the two years that I have been President of the Whyalla Mt Laura Lions.

It has been an enjoyable couple of years and I thank you for not only the opportunity to serve you as President but also for the support that has been extended to me during that time.

The past twelve months have again been a busy time, we have raised a total of $44612.00, this equates to a total of 2465 hrs that have been spent in the Whyalla Community.

The biggest event of the year is no doubt the Whyalla Show. Funds raised from the Show are apportioned to the Whyalla Gift Foundation. This year we have retained some of the funds to do some much needed upgrades of the Dutch Shed at Jubilee Park.

We have spent $20583.00 in the Whyalla Community this year. Our major donation was $5000.00 to Ronald McDonald House in Adelaide. This is the first payment of a two year agreement to support the complete upgrade of a room at Ronald McDonald. I think this is a wonderful cause to support, 16% of the people that stay at Ronald McDonald House are from this region.

Our Club has 19 active members at present. We are fortunate that without exception those members when available are always willing to pitch in and help where necessary.

We have spoken for some years about increasing our membership, unfortunately all service clubs in Whyalla face the same dilemma as we do.

In closing I want to wish Graeme Lowe all the best in his new role, thank you for the support.

President Report

Another successful Lions year has finished. I would like to thank all members for their support this year, we are an aging club and finding it tougher to do the fundraising we used to do.

Once again we have enlisted other clubs to assist us with a win-win situation (we raise some money and they do too).

This year we turned over $36482.00 and donated back $16506.00. One of our major donation was $5000.00 promised to Ronald McDonald House to cover refurbishment of a room at the House. Barry Spry, Tony Treasure and myself were lucky enough to visit Ronald McDonald House during the year and see first hand what a great job they do. They are quite happy to show any Lions members around, if you are ever in Adelaide and have time to spare.

The Whyalla Show this year was another huge success, we turned over approximately $14500.00, between the Dutch Shed and Chip Van, getting numbers is always hard and thanks to some friends and partners in Lions we managed to get through.

Our other large income earners were the After Pageant Fair, Carols in the Park and of course Australia Day.

I have agreed to stay on as President for another 12 months and the board has also agreed to stay and help out, during that time which is very much appreciated.

I know we say it every year, but we do need to make a conscious effort to try and gain some new members.

We have done some extension alterations to the “Cubby” (thanks to Bryan Carpenter and others) and this should go a long way to enticing new members (photo below).

The meetings are a lot less formal and it provides a comfortable atmosphere.

Hopefully we can make next year bigger and better.
