    Coolum Beach Convention 2018

    Members of our Club had a really great time at the Coolum Convention. Great guest speakers, amazing fellowship and really friendly people, all enjoying the days and nights with fellow Lions. People of all ages coming together to meet new friends and enjoying time with old friends too.

    Congratulations to our bright shining star Kirra Shelton who spoke of her experiences in the Youth Exchange Student Program. You did us proud Kirra ...well done...super delivery.

    David Watts was elected as 1st Vice District Governor for 2019-2020 which was well deserved. This recognition was a reward for his dedication and hard work and one step closer to his goal of District Governor.

    This was a great moment for Tewantin Noosa Lions Club and we were all very proud of him and his achievement.

    Lion Chris Pullin made a presentation for the 2021 Convention to be held by Tewantin Noosa Lions. Our Club was successful in the bid for the Convention and created lots of excitement.

    We are now looking forward to making the 2021 Convention a time to remember for all Lions who attend.

    Michael Roach informed all Lions of the progression of the Drought Relief Fundraising throughout Queensland. He told us all about Jericho and their plight and how the people of this town are very appreciative of everything that we are doing for them.

    The Remembrance Ceremony was a special event and the weather was very kind to all and made this part of the Convention very pleasant to remember our past Members. It was fabulous to see Michael and Annette O’Brien present. Welcome back, we have missed you both.

    Drought Relief News from Michael Roach

    Drought News from Michael and Jay Roach
    To our Club Members,

    Thank you for the time spent on your feet cooking sausages to provide the money to purchase emergency food for the drought-affected dairy farming family in Wondai. They have been really struggling over the past few months with many hurdles faced of finances, health, weather, age etc., and the statement was made to us “I don’t think I will be able to put food on the table for us”.

    We were able to supply groceries, fresh fruit & veg. kindly donated from the Tewantin Green Grocer, meat purchased from the butcher in Wondai, an electric beater, footwear & Noosa Heads Lions dropped off a box of goodies. Mark Shelton rallied to the cause with large size boots and 2 Visa cards for fuel and general purchases.
    You may wonder about the electric beater – Ruth has been making cakes & scones selling them door to door in town to make some income as lack of nutritious feed for stock meant greatly reduced milk production and then when it did rain the cows stopped producing milk!! Stupid things!
    Our dear friend Steve Priest’s clothes were put to great use as he was the same size as our farmer & Adele, he will look amazing in Steve’s floral boardies in the mud around the dairy!

    The area received 100 millimetres of rain in that stormy period 2 weeks ago, the sun has come out and the grass is green and you are inclined to think “what drought”! We experienced “experienced green drought’ in Canberra so we know it is just a tease!

    Last night the family rang to pass on their sincere thanks & stated that they hadn’t eaten meat for 6 months & were over the moon about the corned silver-side.
    So, to all of you, I say thank you from Michael & I and also one dairying family who are just over the range from Noosa.
    Regards,
    Jay

  • FROM THE DESK OF THE DISTRICT GOVERNOR

    My theme for the District this year is “Moving Forward”. The Lion’s Logo has Lion’s heads facing both forward and backwards.

    Having spent the last three years celebrating our achievements in the last 100 years it is time to look forward.

    Under the theme of “Moving Forward” the District Leadership will be encouraging our club leaders to focus on five aspects of our operations;

    1. Leadership. Cabinet leadership and Zone chairs have plans in place to deliver many new leadership development initiatives over the next 12 months. I encourage members to try and find the time to accept these opportunities and learn more about our Lions organisation and how we plan to strengthen and grow our clubs.

    2. Inclusion. Everyone has something to contribute. It is important that your club programs include a range of service projects so we can match each individual ’s capabilities with at least one club project. Not everyone can do physical work, not everyone can handle the new technology, but club leaders should be able to find service projects to suit everyone.

    3. Openness. Please be open to working with other organisations in your communities. Invite their leaders to meetings as guest speakers. Learn more about they do. Lions have a lot to offer. Keep in mind that your club can call on support from other Lions clubs and you have the backing of our Lions Foundations. Lions can achieve almost anything once we recognise the need.

    4. New Ideas. Think about adopting a new project by partnering with an existing community group for an activity. This just might attract new members. Every
    Lions club is highly regarded because of our good name. We are well backed by our global organisation and our Lions Liability insurance cover which is out of the reach of many local community organisations.

    5. Service. “We Serve” remains our primary focus. We all joined Lions with this in mind. Everyone in our clubs and our district organisation is focused on enabling our members to deliver on this promise.

    Kind regards to all.
    Bill Moore, 0418 301 455

  • Registering for your new "Lion Account"

    To access MyLCI from March 27th 2019 you will need to create a new "Lion Account" which will give you access to both MyLCI and MyLION on your PC or Laptop. This short Video demonstrates the process of creating new "Lion Account"

    More details: https://vimeo.com/324982169?fbclid=IwAR2bCT_3pZkv8hiJjIo7iXULOz4Si-ZZb3Q6jeF3ciI-E27f6h_pilprjBo


  • Changes to the way you login to MyLCI

    From March 27, 2019 all our Lions digital applications will be grouped into a single account, which will be called your Lion Account. This account will use a single, universal login system. Instead of using different credentials to login to different applications, we’ll use one User ID and Password to access them all (MyLion, MyLCI, Shop and upcoming applications).

    For MyLion users—you’re all set! Your MyLion credentials will work for your Lion Account.

    URL for MyLon on Web https://app.mylion.org

    MyLCI users will be asked to create a Lion Account if they have not already registered on MyLion.

    We recognize this will be a short term disruption for all MyLCI users, but we believe this approach will have big benefits in the future as we add/improve applications and give our members a great online space to be Lions. Login and register at https://app.mylion.org/ and if you need help getting registered, please reach out to us at mylion@lionsclubs.org
