LIONS DISTRICT DROUGHT RELIEF APPEAL

6th August 2018
Greetings Clubs in District 201N2
Drought Relief


It’s ironic that I sit to write this letter this morning about what we, as Lions, can do to support those effected by the drought, and it’s raining here in Jamberoo.


Clubs in our District, and of cause, our Lions, want to contribute to drought relief and are looking for a means to do so.


There are many avenues we can take to support our farmers & towns affected, that are already up & running.


On our District website, http://201n2.lions.org.au/ you will find a number of areas where we as Lions & Clubs can contribute. To short cut directly to the donation area, go to http://lionsclubs.org.au/lions-clubs-mobilised-on-drought-relief/
 

There you will find ways to support Australian Lions Foundation (ALF) who have launched a national appeal to raise $500,000 before the end of August to help our farming families. Those funds will be quickly dispersed to local Lions Clubs in drought affected communities for fodder and other essential items to assist families.
 

Another way to support is through ‘Need for Feed’, Victorian based Clubs that are transporting fodder into our NSW affected areas, supported by our local Lions Clubs. To donate to ‘Need for Feed’, go to: http://www.needforfeed.org/donate.html
 

Locally, the Tahmoor Lions project ‘Dilly Drought Drive’ is working to deliver fodder, goods & services into our District. They are doing a great job! Donations can be made to ‘Dilly Drought Drive’, Bendigo Bank, BSB: 633-000 Acc No. 157928458.
 

Alternatively, you can donate by sending funds to our District account BSB: 062-900 Acc No. 10117411, marked ‘Drought Relief’ and the funds will be dispersed accordingly on your behalf.
 

Lions, thankyou in the anticipation of your support. In the meantime, let’s pray and hope for good rainfall.
 

Yours in Lions
District Governor Peter Scifleet

 

 

District Governor Peter's Theme: “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” Helen Keller

About 100 years ago some businessmen in Chicago were having a regular businessmen’s meeting. We don’t know the context but we do know that an idea came from that gathering that they wished to do something to serve their community. They recognised that by working together they could achieve more than any of them could achieve alone.

The desire to come together and serve the community was shared and more groups and individuals embraced the idea of a businessman’s club that put something back into the community. From this humble start, Lions Clubs International has grown and followed the motto “We Serve” for a century. And through that service, Lions have built communities.

Lions Clubs International today is embarking on the first year of the second century of service.

This is a time where, having reflected on the achievements of those who have gone before us, we can embrace the opportunities that we discover in our communities and set our organisation up for a full and rewarding second century of service to continue build communities locally, nationally and around the world.

We Lions can continue to build communities through our individual and collective service. We can do great things as we change peoples’ lives.
