    Youth Exchangee from Finland becomes a shearer

    Katariina 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.

    LIONS LEADERSHIP TRAINING

    Dear Secretaries & Club Leadership Chairpersons(1st Vice Presidents)

    Your District is now seeking suitable and enthusiastic candidates to apply for the Emerging Lions Leadership Institute, which is now going to be held in Auckland and not in Sydney as previously advised. The dates are still going to be 12th – 14th April 2019.

    This change has been brought about because we are holding the Faculty Development Institute (FDI), a Lions Certified Instructor Program (LCIP) and a local Regional Lions Leadership Institute (RLLI) in Australia so it was agreed to move the ELLI to New Zealand.
    The Regional Lions Leadership Institute will be held in Adelaide on 22nd -24th February 2019.
    The RLLI and the ELLI cover a similar curriculum and both target the newer Lions leader. The preference is for members who have not yet been a Club President, but current Club Presidents may apply if there are vacancies.
    I would encourage you to promote the RLLI to your newer Lions looking to take on leadership roles in their Club or first move into a cabinet position. The program is also open to Leos (over 18 yrs old) and we would love to see some Leos attend.
    Please make good use of the training offered, it can only be of benefit to your Clubs, District and the services we provide.
    A good contingent from 201V6 will be most welcome.
    I have attached application forms for both institutes. ​Information can also be found at https://www.lionsclubs.org/en/resources-for-members/resource-center/emerging-lions-leadership-institute

    Yarrawonga Junior Public Speaking

    Yarrawonga Lions Junior Public Speaking Competition was held on Sunday 12th August, 2018 at the Lions Clubroom at the Yarrawonga Showgrounds.

    Family, friends and supporters gathered for an entertaining and enlightening program of prepared and impromptu speeches from the 12 participants.

    This year participants were from Sacred Heart Primary School, Yarrawonga College P-12 and Mulwala Public School.

    Unfortunately one of our students was not able to attend in person but she was adamant that she wished to participate so with the help of the Royal Children's Hospital and modern technology a YouTube video was presented.

    Although she did not win a place in the competition she did win a place in our hearts. We all wish her well in her recovery.
