    Cannington Lions Club presents award to Spark of Life president for work with Dementia Care International

    HILARY Lee’s innovative work with dementia patients through Dementia Care International earned her an accolade from the WA Lions Club this week.

    The exemplary service award was presented at the Cannington Lions Club on Tuesday night.

    Her work has helped implement a philosophy known as Spark of Life, to increase the level of emotional care patients receive with the aim of reversing dementia symptoms.

    The approach is being employed in 11 countries as a result.

    Ms Lee, now president of Spark of Life, said she used to be an occupational therapist working with many aged care residents who were on medication to keep them calm.

    She went on a day course run by Spark of Life founder Jane Verity and she and her colleagues then implemented the concepts seven days a week.



    They and started to notice improvements in people with dementia within a month in terms of behaviours and language and this enabled people to come off medications, Ms Lee said.

    The award was presented to the Kalamunda resident by the State Lions Club co-ordinator Sue Renton, along with the Canning City Lions Club President Chris Gwilym.

    “It is an honour and a pleasure to receive this special award – both personally and on behalf of Dementia Care International, and the Dementia Foundation for Spark of Life,” Ms Lee said.

    Lynwood Senior High School ANZAC Day Service

    On Wednesday 2nd May, Lion Ross attended the Lynwood High School as the Lions Club of Canning City representative at their annual ANZAC Day commemoration Ceremony. Due to the inclement weather the ceremony had to be held in the High School Hall, so the number had to be reduced and only years 7 to 9 could attend. Representatives from Federal, State and Local Governments, Returned Services League, High School Board, P&C, School Board and Service clubs laid wreaths. High School Principal Geri Hardy gave an excellent address drawing in all aspects of the theatres of war that our soldiers have sacrificed their lives for our country. It was also excellent to hear both the Australian and New Zealand National Anthems sung at the memorial service. The Lynwood High School should be congratulated on an excellent Memorial Service.

    Social Meeting Guest speeker

    Our guest speaker was Daniel, a year 11 student from Lynwood Senior High School. He was accompanied by his mother.

    He made a short speech to us relating his and his fellow students’ ideas and thoughts regarding the work of volunteers in society. They were eager to learn about LIONS and how they work in our community. Potentially, they would like to make an association or partnership with our club.

    When asked “How he thought this could work?” Daniel was a little vague, but a suggestion of the students helping us with our electronic communications seemed to be something we could pursue.

    He took a copy of our Newsletter to give fellow students an insight into the club’s activities.

    Hopefully we can harness and develop a valuable working partnership with these young people.

    Children's Christmas Party

    On the 4th December we held a children party for those less fortunate than ourselves.
    The participants were foster children and single parents with their children
    The party was held in the grounds of Queens Park Primary School. This was a beautiful setting with undercover seating surrounded by garden and palm trees
    We had access to the kitchen facilities where the lions prepared the food
    Menu consisted of all things fattening and delicious
    The party started with a sausage sizzle followed by sausage rolls, party pies, fairy bread and watermelon
    There were donuts too which were made like snow men and were donated by the Donut King
    The children had ice cream in cones. Some children even came back for seconds
    To top it off the kids were given a lolly bag as they were leaving
    Entertainment for the party consisted of a bouncy castle which was well used and a face painter who is a Lion and very talented
    There was a queue of children to have their faces painted and they refused to go to lunch as they didn’t want to lose their place in the queue . Kids became cats, dogs, fairies and Pokémon with the help of the artist
    The gifts were wonderful and were well received by all the children and Adults. Santa’s workshop did a fantastic job and our thanks go out to them
    Canning City Lions Club purchased gifts for the boys from 10 year and up as Santa workshop was unable to provide gifts for this age group
    This is why Lions went shopping and with the money from the Grant bought all the boys 10 years and over watches and mega bubbles for all the children. These were a great success
    Father Christmas did a wonderful job, although he needs to put on some weight by next year as he wasn’t quite fat enough around the middle

    Seniors Have A Go Day

    There were a lot of earth and road works happening at Burswood Park this year and the event was condensed into 2 areas. I hope they keep this format as it was easier to get around and see everything. It was hard to judge the number of attendees. The weather was a cool 21C. We had ample shade however when the river breeze came in the conditions were unpleasant and cold.

    We catered for 400 Sausage Sizzles. There were 16 food outlets and another outlet selling sausages as well. We sold about 240 sizzles. We stopped cooking at about 2.00pm and after cleaning and packing up we were gone by about 3.00pm.
    Great work Lions.

    The cooking and serving went really well. Cooking was Len with help from Carolyn when things got busy. Joy and Bel worked the till and Mary, Terri and Christine shared the serving. Chappie did his usual great job of cutting up all the sausages and assisted serving the drinks. Ian was the go to person keeping the drinks, sausages and sauces up to the servers. Thanks to Len and Ian who set up and towed the trailers to and from the shed. Special thanks to Fraser and Ian for slicing 40kg of onions and all other Lions who assisted with wrapping the rolls before the meeting. Your assistance was greatly appreciated.

    Footy Night

    The Annual Footy night celebrated at the last meeting in September was a little low on numbers due to the inclement weather preventing a larger crowd. However the members and guest present enjoyed a warming soup before the big match got underway. The pregame quiz of eighteen high level Aussie Rules and two soccer questions were answered with great diligence, however a question was raised of the quiz master as to how many had to do with the Dockers (only four) so an official complaint was not raised. PDG Lion Barry took out the prize (which he shared with all attendees) with a top score of 14. Great effort Barry. It was noted however that a bribe of $20 was offered to the quiz master to provide the answers and another of our members got the grand total of zero, which is a bit of a worry as the last question was who will win the 2016 Grand Final.
    Following the quiz was the Goal Kicking competition. All members who were able to stand (due to age not alcohol) took part. Last years Canninglow Champion Lion Brenton kicked off and scored a very impressive goal. After round one we still had five competitors, with our lady Lions namely Marilyn, Terri and Gail outnumbering the men. Round two saw no change so the adjudicator moved the goal posts back an additional metre. Lion Brenton then decided to come off the long run up but unfortunately dragged his kick, as did all our kickers. A replay was organised with a similar result until the final competitor, Lion Gail who tried an ‘Eddie Betts” (Adelaide) from the boundary line and it “bobbled” through. Lion Gail was awarded the Cannninglow Medal for 2016 by President Len.
    Congratulations Lion Gail – great kick.

    Furniture Moving for Mother and four children
    18-06-2016

    At 9.30, 13 members and helpers assembled at Hogarth Street Cannington. Barry being the furthest away must have camped up the street overnight to be first on site. With assistance from helper Glen they had already loaded a fridge and washing machine onto a tandem trailer. Very quickly they were fully loaded and first away to Weetman Cove Cannington, a short haul

    Next away was a van provided by John T’s future son in law Aaron and his friend Tim. The van was able to fit much of the taller items of furniture. We then loaded Ian’s Ute and trailer, Peter’s ute and a lot of smalls into Colin’s wagon.

    The Lady had arranged for much of the furniture to be outside ready for pickup. The beds and a number of items still had to be taken from the second floor down a flight of stairs by our team. We were up to the task and there were no disasters.

    The van and Barry returned to collect bed bases and mattresses and the remainder of boxes etc and we were all away and unloaded by 11.30. Leaving a very thankful and happy lady.

    Many thanks to Ian, Les, Colin, John, Marilyn, Peter, Mary G, Barry, and Queens Park Branch Club President, Eddie. With special thanks to other helpers Justin, Glenn, Aaron and Tim.
    A total of 26 community service hours for a worthwhile project.

    Vale Lion Peter Ferguson

    We all knew that during the past few years Peter struggled with increasing health issues but we were still shocked by his sudden passing.

    Peter or “ Fergie” as we commonly knew him joined Lions Joined Lions 32 years ago. Peter was an enthusiastic member of Canning City Lions Club. Some of the positions he held in the club were, Lion Tamer, Director, VP and President.

    He often bore the brunt of Tail Twisters stories, having to pay many fines but he always took it as good fun. Fergie was involved in all Lions projects. He was especially prominent in our Cash-for Cans, Christmas cake sales when we used to sell them from the Santa’s Sleigh and of course the sausage sizzles at Bunnings. Others come into mind New Year’s Day at Shelley foreshore, Carols by Candlelight, Half Marathon and Tree Planting along the banks of the Canning River. He enjoyed the social aspect of Lions including the dinners and attending Conventions where he enjoyed fancy dress At the Balls. Some may remember him dressed as a Viking and another in a pink tutu. However his favourite activity was sausage sizzling and statistics show he very rarely missed one.

    I believe we can all learn from Peter’s qualities. His determination and perseverance with his deafness never stopped him being involved. He was always willing to have a go and he never spoke ill of anyone. He was a true friend.

    At our Lions meetings, the code of ethics is read, and I would like to refer to one special portion of those ethics that Peter lived by.

    To hold friendship as an end and not a means.

    To hold that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one to another, but the true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.

    20 YEARS SERVING AS A CAKE AND MINT OUTLET FOR THE LIONS CLUB OF CANNING CITY

    In the forty years I had been employed by the PMG/Australia Post I was very fortunate to be able to sell our Lions Mints and Cakes through many of their outlets. Places such as Post Offices, Delivery Centres, Upstairs in the GPO, Perth Parcel and Mail Centre but there is one outstanding place that even eight years after my retirement still allows me to put our mints and cakes there for sale. That place is the Australia Post Transport Branch located at the Perth Airport. In the early 80’s before we moved to Merredin at Christmas time I would sell cakes in the admin area. Moving to Merredin we sold them over the counter (one cake and you get a free stamp- ha ha). On returning to Perth in the mid 90’s a fellow admin worker Hector Raspa, then in Transport asked if I was still selling cakes. I said yes and you might say the next 20 years is history. From the Christmas Cakes I suggested he might like to try mints and they were a great seller because the drivers had something to chew on particularly on the night runs when everything was closed. Hector, like me, has retired but fortunately Micheline Anderson has taken over the stewardship of our Lions Cakes and Mints. The sales of cakes has risen every year with this year in excess of $400 being sold while the mints average out around $150 per year and the trays are always put out front. Bottom line one outlet has put somewhere in the region of six thousand dollars into our activities account for around three trips to the airport each year.
    This year I obtained an appreciation certificate and presented it to Micheline as a small token of our appreciation for what she and her predecessors have done for the Lions Club of Canning City.

    Seniors Have a Go Day

    The number of seniors attending the day was well down on recent years. I believe that ceremonies for Remembrance Day at Kings Park and RSL Clubs had a lot to do with this. The weather was a great 33C. We had ample shade and when the river breeze came in the conditions were pleasant.

    We catered for 400 Sausage Sizzles. There were 16 food outlets and another outlet selling sausages as well. We sold about 240 sizzles. We stopped cooking at about 2.00pm and after cleaning and packing up we were gone by about 3.00pm.
    Great work Lions.

    The cooking and serving went really well. Cooking were Len and Ross with assistance from Ian. Les worked the till and Fraser and John did the serving as Mary A poured the sauces and handed out the serviettes. Chappie did his usual great job of cutting up all the sausages and assisted serving the drinks. The production line once again worked well and most of the time the completed sausage sizzle was ready before the customer had paid. Thanks to Len and Ian who set up and towed the trailers to and from the shed and John who assisted with the unpacking. Finally, thanks to all the Lions who assisted with wrapping the rolls before the meeting. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

We are sure that all Lions would love to help the Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation (ALCCRF) support this essential work. One simple way that Lions and the greater community can help to raise funds is by hosting a “Coinline”.

    The proceeds of hundreds of individual Coinlines throughout the country will be converted into 5cent coins and laid end-on-end. The objective is to break the current World Record Coin Line, standing at just under 76Km. Our goal is to reach 85Km which will smash the record. When we reach this target, the ALCCRF and Cancer Research will benefit by over $250,000.

    In an age where we predominately use cards before cash, there are still millions of dollars in coins in circulation. Many are just lying around in bowls, jars, drawers, and bed-side tables. Now is a good time to collect up all those coins and create a ”Coinline” with your friends.

    The ALCCRF has received a great response to the District Functions Challenges at the MD Convention in Canberra, with a total of $4,000 raised at the dinners held on that one night. The current “Changeover Challenge” is going very well, with numerous Clubs and Districts reporting during June. Particular thanks must go to District C1, with $2,500.00 donated from their Challenge.



    Please direct any queries about the “Coinline” project to PDG Keith Stewart

    New LCIF Video Released

    See how your support of LCIF delivers on the needs of people around the globe.

    One of the most important ways that Lions make a difference in their communities and the world is through Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), the official charitable organisation of Lions Clubs International.

    With funding from LCIF, Lions carry out large-scale humanitarian projects in their community. Every dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly toward a grant, as administrative costs are paid by interest on investments. Lions’ support of the Foundation is critical, as donations from Lions provide the majority of LCIF’s revenue.

    Since LCIF began in 1968, it has awarded more than 10,268 grants totaling more than US$729 million. Together, Lions and LCIF are making a difference for millions of people. “We Serve” better together.

    LCIF grants go toward Lions sight services, disaster relief, health initiatives and more. Support LCIF and make a difference.

    Lions - We Care, We Give, We Serve, We Need You!

    The Lions Clubs in Western Australia (Districts 201w1 & 201w2) have collaborated to promote Lions by organising an Electronic Billboard in the Perth Underground Train Station as well as on the back of two CAT buses which travel around the CBD in Perth.

    We need You and "your" Two Hands to continue the great work Lions do in the Community, here, and around the world. If you have a few hours to spare each week, please join a Lions Club in your area, you will find it rewarding and sometimes it will bring a 'tear or two to your eyes".

    Pictured is DG Colin Heap of District 201W1 with one of the Cat buses
