This bike ride raises over $100,000 for charity. Thank you to all those members who rose early to help on this worthwhile project.

A letter from of the Australian Motorhoming Lions ClubAs the current president of the Australian Motorhoming Lions Club I am contacting your club today and asking for your support.
We are trying to raise as much money as we can for local charities and Angel Flight, at Barcaldine, Qld., as they no longer have a local Lions Club so we are doing what we can for the community, as we are a national club.
The AMLC main objective is to assist as many local lions clubs as we travel this vast country with their main events, to find out more please visit our website: amlc.org.au
Thank you for the opportunity and I hope that your club will be kind enough to spread the word where ever you can as we hope to smash the current record of 672 RV's.
I ask that your members share this with as many of their friends on Facebook if possible.

President and a founding member of the AMLC.

LIONS IPSWICH 100 BIKE RIDE - SUNDAY 22 APRIL 2018Lions President, David Landers, of the Lions Club of Mogill-Mt Crosby visited the Lions Club of Rosewood on the 21 March to update the club on their responsibilities as marshals for the Lions Club of Mogill-Mt Crosby's major project, “The Ipswich 100 Bike Ride”. Lion David gave the club a short history of the ride that has raised approximately $70,000 each year for charity, as we all know every dollar raised by Lions Clubs goes back to charity. There are no administration costs in Lions Clubs as we are all volunteers. The ride this year is on the Sunday 22 April and the Lions Club of Rosewood is responsible for the area from Walloon to the southern boundary of Rosewood and out to Amberley along with the drink stop in Rosewood. Here Lion David is discussing the ride with his brother-in-law, Lion Ivan Schindler, who is the Ride Co-ordinator for the Lions Club of Rosewood. Information about the ride can be found on the web at http://ipswich100.com.au

Lions Renal Laboratory set up at the PA Hospital in the early daysTo: the District Governors and Members of LIONS districts 201Q1, 201Q3 and 201Q4.
Dear LIONS DG 201Q1 Ann Reed,
I have just enjoyed watching a 15 minute movie mentioned in 201Q1’s on-line news items . It was made by one Roy Worfold, a true gentleman and a dedicated LION (of "201K") back in the 60's and 70's, and it explains 'what is a LIONS Club'. (Movie on: http://lionsclubs.org.au/a-glimpse-into-our-history/)
Well, I am very happily aware of what LIONS Clubs can do. I saw myself in the movie, because I was the doctor shown in the LIONS Renal Laboratory at Princess Alexandra Hospital. How well I recall the remarkable support I received from so many Clubs in (then) 201K and 201A districts. How much I enjoyed doing my research backed by people who believed whole-heartedly in the need for it.
I used to talk about the work we were doing at all 201A and 201K Conventions, and many times I talked to individual LIONS clubs. However, it occurred to me that, although I did my best to explain the research in straight-forward language, LIONS did not have a hard copy of the publications that arose from that research in my time as your research Fellow from 1966-1978.
So, I decided to photocopy the more important of those publications and put them together in a book as a record of the outcome of your support for our work back in those exciting days, to allow your full perusal of them . I hope this may provide something of historical significance for you and your District to keep, to show what LIONS did to get medical research rolling, not only for my work but for a ll the impressive subsequent achievements in medical research you have made and are making possible.
Therefore, if you would accept this book for your archives, it would be a great honour to me and I believe to the memory of the countless LIONS Members who made it all possible.
Yours in fond memories and with my very best regards, sincerely,
If you are interested in reading the book please contact Peter Ho

May is recycle for sight monthThis month, collect used eyeglasses and raise awareness about the Lions eyeglass recycling program.
Eyeglass recycling is one of the Lions most popular activities.

Starting an eyeglass collection in your community can be an easy and rewarding activity that will raise your club's visibility and provide your fellow Lions with a great deal of satisfaction in serving others.
Contact local businesses, schools, libraries, places of worship, city administrative centers and eye care professionals. Invite them to assist with your collection efforts by hosting collection boxes.
Use Lions Recycle for Sight resources for your collection campaign,
Send your collected eyeglasses, reading glasses, frames and sunglassesse to one of the official Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers.
Report your club's eyeglass collection efforts via the online Lions Club Service Activity Report.
