2019 District Convention Info will be released very soonInfo to be release very soon
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: https://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
