President Report


I am looking forward to the coming year and hope to have a positive influence on the Whyalla Mt Laura Lions Club in that time.

Some of the things I hope to achieve this year is as follows.

         Unfortunately the numbers in our Lions Club for a number of reasons have fallen away in recent years I think increasing our membership base needs a strong focus this year. If we continue along our current path we are going to find it increasingly difficult to fulfil our obligations at events such as the Whyalla Show etc.  Whilst the membership committee led by John Schrapel are principally responsible in trying to find new members I believe we all have an obligation to do this.

         I would like to see our club become involved with an ongoing project that involves the disadvantaged in our community.  Exactly what this is, I am not entirely sure.  However I will be canvassing it at future meeting to see what ideas can be generated. It could be as simple as a blanket appeal each year?

         There has been a suggestion put forward whereby we put on a function, where it is not about raising funds.  For example, a free BBQ outside the council chambers on a Friday afternoon.  We will not only be putting the name of our club out to the community but also enjoying some fellowship at both the BBQ and the subsequent debriefing at the Bayview Hotel!

We have a big month coming up in August. On Sunday the 9th we have working bee at the Dutch Shed in preparation for the Show.  Following this is the opening of the extensions to the telecommunications centre at the Mt Laura Homestead.  I would urge all Lions to try to get to this event.

The Show is on the 15th 16th.  This is obviously a major event where we will need all hands on deck.  Further information as to rosters etc. will be forthcoming.

Hopefully I will see most of you at the combined Lions function next Wednesday the 29th at the Homestead.
