Melbourne Cup Cruise DetailsAs part of my plan to increase the opportunity of Lions in 201N4 to enjoy social contact and have some fun, I am proposing to organise a cruise to the Melbourne Cup in 2022.
Please find attached a brochure with some basic details about the proposed Melbourne Cup Cruise for 201N4 clubs. If you can inform your members as soon as possible it would be helpful
Some interest has already been expressed.
If any of your members are interested, could they please contact me as soon as possible as there are only 2 cruise ships going to the cup at this stage and are expected to book out.
I will need their preference of cruise line, email and phone no for future contact, cabin choice and names of everyone in the cabin. The cruise line selected by the majority will be the one selected.
There are special prices for anyone wishing to have more than 2 in a cabin. These are limited and I will need to negotiate on your behalf.
After I have sufficient numbers to negotiate a discount I will inform everyone of final price, details of cruise and details for payment etc.
If you require further details or queries please contact me and I will attempt to supply answers.
Thank you for your co-operation!

Farmers in drought-stricken Dubbo receive helping hand from Royal Freemasons' Benevolent InstitutionDuring his recent CEO Roadshow visit to RFBI Dubbo Masonic Village, RFBI (Royal Freemasons' Benevolent Institution) CEO, Frank Price met with Anne Jones OAM and learned of the hardships drought stricken farmers are facing and work the Lions Club District is doing to support them.
Since hearing about their plight, RFBI has generously donated $175,000 to the local Lions Club District to provide hay to 150 farmers across the region.
“Farmers in Dubbo have entered their third year of drought and are doing it tougher than ever,” RFBI CEO Frank Price said.
“The $175,000 will buy eight bales of hay each for 150 farmers, which is enough to give them some temporary relief.” he said.
“For RFBI, it’s important to support people in our local communities. We understand first-hand just how big of an impact drought conditions are having on farmers and this is our way of showing them our support.”
John O’Leary is one of the farmers to benefit from the donation.
He says the hay is invaluable and will allow him to breathe a brief sigh of relief, at a time where living on the land has been extremely challenging.
“On behalf of all farmers, I thank you and the community for your incredible support,” John said.
Anne Jones OAM from the Lions Club District said the donation is much needed.
“It’s life-saving, not only for the thousands of starving stock but also for our farmers who find themselves on the edge of despair,” she said.
“It’s organisations such as yours that gives hope, courage and strength to continue. Knowing that you care, makes all the difference.”

Lions and Lions Club International (LCIF) are very active in the fight against trachoma.LCIF’s SightFirst program has awarded more than US$47 million to The Carter Center, a leader in combating trachoma. Since 1999, LCIF has awarded US$20.5 million for 26 trachoma control projects in Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nepal, Nigeria, Senegal, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda. Ethiopia alone has received more than US$7 million in funding since it is the most endemic country in the world for the disease. “Trachoma: Defeating a Blinding Curse,” a documentary feature film that follows Carter Center staff, global health partners, and Lion and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter engaged in a comprehensive strategy to eliminate blinding trachoma in Ethiopia, is airing on American Public Television stations nationwide. - See more at: utm_source=blog&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=LionsBlog#sthash.Rm8e13lt.dpuf

Who are the Lions?Who are the Lions? Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization, with 1.4 million members in 210 countries and geographic locations, dedicated to making a difference. We serve where we live as well as globally. What do Lions do? Where there’s a need, there’s a Lion. We meet the needs of our communities and the world, ranging from assisting the visually impaired and working with local youth to medical missions and disaster relief. What types of service are Lions involved in? Though well known for its successful initiatives in vision health, Lions service is as diverse as its members. We meet all sorts of needs, from assisting the elderly to helping victims of natural disasters. I would like to volunteer in my community, but why should I do so as a Lion? Lions meet the needs of those in their own communities as well as around the world, and we have fun doing it. Working together locally and internationally, the worldwide network of Lions has a vast amount of resources and is able to accomplish much more than individuals and small groups working alone. How do I become a Lion? If you are interested in becoming a Lion, contact your local Lions club and express interest in learning more. Visit BeALion.org to find a club and fill out a prospective member form, or visit LionsClubs.org to learn more about Lions.

One of the best ways to promote your club and get the word out about LionsOne of the best ways to promote your club and get the word out about Lions is to proudly display the Lions logo at your activities and events. This includes wearing your Lions apparel, hanging your club’s banner and handing out Lions-branded communications. But before you start designing your own Lions T-shirts and websites with an individualized logo for your club, know the correct and incorrect way to display the Lions brand. Below are just a few Do’s and Don’ts to keep in mind when designing an individualized club logo. Refer to the LCI Graphic Identity Manual for complete guidelines, including specifications regarding color palette, typeface, images and more. Don’t: Change the Lions logo by using unacceptable colors. Add text to the Lions emblem. Apply graphic elements to extend or layer over Lions emblem. Use the full-color Lions emblem for print or Web applications. Do: Use the approved Lions Clubs color palette. Consistent use of color will promote recognition and strengthen the Lions identity. Keep text clear of Lions emblem. Be sure Lions emblem is layered over other graphic elements, not under. Use full-color Lions emblem only for embroidery and other club supplies items - See more at:
