  • Saturday 4th March 2017 is NATIONAL LIONS AWARENESS DAY

    1. On this day we want to let the general public know that we don’t only cook and sell sausages and sell Christmas cakes. “Lions Clubs International is the Worlds Largest Community Service Organisation” we are in 206 Countries World Wide, we also have approx. 1.4 Million Members, we have a permanent seat in the United Nations for Humanitarian Needs, Our Patron for “Lions Australia” is the Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove.

    2. Book a site at your local shopping centre, outside supermarket, railway station, bus terminal, cricket match, outside a movie theatre complex and even domestic airport. Anywhere there are people on the day. China Town, Museum, South Bank, Ferry Terminal and the list goes on.

    3. On this day I would ask that each club promote “YOUR CLUB”, “YOUR PROJECTS”, What you do in your area, then projects Nationally and Internationally.

    4. Set up a small display with photographs of your projects, if possible make a barometer or graph to show how much your club has given back to the community since it’s charter (my club Robina has given back to the community approx. 1.2 million dollars in our 28 years.) Promote “YOUR CLUB” and what you have achieved. And one of the most important points to get across is that 100% of all funds raised from the public goes back to the Community

    5. Also on this day we are trying to “RECRUIT NEW MEMBERS”. Therefore have membership information and forms available. If people are interested take their name, address and phone number. If they are not from your area pass the information along to their nearest club and they can invite them along to a meeting.

    6. Remember we are not selling or cooking anything on this day. Please have balloons, wrapped lollies, little give-a-ways for the children, this will get the parents etc. over so you can talk to them.
    it may cost your club $10-$20 to do this. But also on the day make sure you have a “Donation Tin” on your display, marked with the fundraiser of your choice.

    7. If you are a small club or you have several clubs close by, or more that one club in town, combine together to “Promote Your Club/s.” If you have a “Leo Club” invite them to assist on the day.

    8. If you need any brochures to promote your projects please contact your charity NOW. eg. Children’s Childhood Cancer Research, Lions Hearing Dogs, Lions Drug Awareness, Operation Smile. Prostate Cancer and the list goes on. You will probably only need about 20 brochures to put on your display. March 2017 will be here before we know it.

    9. If any club requires any more information please contact your zone chairman or email me on wba68420@bigpond.net.au
