Graham Walker receives a Chris August Memorial AwardLion Graham Walker has been presented with a Chris August Memorial Award for his devoted service to Lavington Lions Club project of Vital Call. Being the Co-ordinator and Administrator of this important community service activity has been a 24/7 project for Graham over several years. During this time the Club has handled over 2100 individual orders which has necessitated Graham's personal attention. The Award was made on behalf of the Club by President Russell Douthat.
Michael Schneider presented with Melvin Jones AwardLion Mick Schneider has received a Melvin Jones Award from our Lions Club in recognition of his continued valuable service to multiple areas of club activities. Mick served as President in 1991-92 and over many years has actively worked on many projects with the main contributions being practical hands on work such as building and welding. He also has a unique talent of being a very talented Tail Twister at Club dinners where he can make all members laugh at his "True" stories.
Community Group of the Year AwardAt the Albury City Australia Day celebrations held at Noreuil Park the "Community Group of the Year" Award was presented to the Lions Club of Lavington. This the third time that the prestigious Award has been gained by the Club and recognises the continued contribution that Lavington Lions have made in the area. The City Mayor Kevin Mack stated that "It was a special award with so many organisations in the city working tirelessly every day to help others. Our community groups are the engine room of our community." The Award was accepted on behalf of the Club by long term members David Kefford and Charles Leaney
Youth Exchangee from Finland becomes a shearerKatariina Saikku, who was hosted by our Club has tried her hand at sheep shearing. She was at Russell and Janet Paech's property at Walla Walla during shearing time. The experience was unique in that after Russell had shorn most of one of his sheep he stopped and had Katariina have a brief turn at completing the long blow on the sheep. She was amazed at being involved and said that it was an experience that she would remember forever. Katariina (called Kate) proved to be a credit to the Youth Exchange program and following her stay with Lavington attended the International Youth Camp.

Camp LEO 2019Over the weekend of 4th to 6th October 2019, 12 LEOS from Cohuna and Tungamah travelled with 6 Lions leaders to Four Post Camp just outside Deniliquin. No not for the Ute Muster but to enjoy some time as a group, enjoying quality time together, swimming, walking, volleyball and lots more. Most importantly they took part in the "LEO Master Chef Challenge". DG Omen can and spent some quality time with the LEOS, was one of the Master Chef judges, along with LEO Liaison Annette and guest speaker Leeza Webb. Wouldn't want their job, four really great sweets were made by the LEOS with some input form their Lion support staff.
Leeza is a "Youth Drug and Alcohol Councillor" and gave the group some really good advice on looking after themselves at parties and looking after their mates.
All in all, a fantastic weekend. Hopefully next year, we will have ALL V6 LEO Clubs involved.

Lions Lap the Map for Diabetes
Lions Lap the Map for Diabetes, Newcastle, New South Wales. 16 likes. ‘Lions Lap the Map’ family friendly walks and community events promoting healthy lifestyle and raising awareness of the Diabetes...
There has been some mention from various areas of getting local recipients of Lions Hearing Dogs involved in support of this project. There has been discussion at MD level with Australian Lions Hearing Dogs CEO and Chairperson, and they are very keen to be involved. Most clubs should know if they have anyone in their area who is a recipient.
If anyone has trouble opening these files, or has any other queries, please contact me ASAP
It is still not too late for clubs to decide to participate in some way, and Some clubs may have other activities scheduled around that time and might be too difficult to hold the event on that date, however it should not be a problem if they conduct some event a week or so earlier, and adjust any publicity accordingly.
If clubs think that they couldn't get sufficient participants in their area to make it viable, they might consider combining with a nearby club.
Remember - the event only has to be as big as each individual club wants to make it.
