Busselton Lions Tertiary ScholarshipThe Busselton Lions Club is offering tertiary scholarships to one student (boy or girl) at each of the five secondary schools in the Busselton area. This offer is part of our policy to support and assist the youth in our region.
Each scholarship is worth $2,000.
Recipients must have completed year 12 and must have the necessary attitude and aptitude to succeed at tertiary level next year.
Our Club members would prefer scholarship winners to be from a family which may have difficulty financing their child’s post-secondary education. Selected students must not be receiving any other scholarship or bursary in their first Tertiary year.
Information about the scholarship has been forwarded to the schools and their staff will select a winner and the successful candidate will be recognized by the school community as having won the scholarship.
In the New Year our Club will arrange to have funds disbursed, on behalf of the scholarship winner, to cover course expenses at his or her tertiary institution of choice.
One gap year can be taken.
CANCELLED - LIONS BIG BAND - 27 MARCHDear South Perth Lions Big Band supporters and dancers
This is to let you know that, sadly, we've decided to cancel our Lions Big Band dance on 27th March as a result of Covid-19.
We want to limit the potential of Covid-19 spread amongst attendees, as well as protecting our band members and volunteers who set up and pack away for the dance.
At this stage we're planning to hold our 24th April dance in South Perth as usual and hope you can be with us for this. We'll certainly let you know if this changes.
Meanwhile, the South Perth Lions Big Band and Club wish you all the best for the coming period, while we all manage the health situation as best we can. It's a difficult and unsettling time for everyone.

Lions Awareness Days in Western AustraliaDue to the 1st Saturday of March being a Long Weekend in Western Australia we opted to approach Bunnings to host Lions Clubs at their 41 stores on Saturday 9th and Sunday the 10th of March for their "Sausage Sizzles".
Bunnings were very happy to oblige and booked those dates for Lions clubs.
Bunnings also allowed the Lions Clubs to have additional displays such as information booths at the stores in the foyer area. Many of the clubs took advantage of this and did display material about Lions.
It was suggested that the clubs that held "Sausage Sizzles" should donate the proceeds to ALCCRF in conjunction with the ALCCRF Biggest BBQ competition in which Bunnings donate the major prize of a BBQ.
Many of the clubs took advantage of this weekend Lions Awareness Day(s) and report that it was most successful exposure to the public and would look forward to repeating this again next year.
Clubs that did not have access to a Bunnings Store were able to arrange other events on that weekend to give them exposure to the local communities.
Many thanks to Bunnings for the assistance in this event weekend.
New Lions Code of Conduct availableLions Australia have been working on an update of the Lions Code of Conduct, which is now complete.

Proud to be a Lion!

East Fremantle Lions MarketsEast Fremantle Club has obtained approval from the Town of East Fremantle to conduct a market on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
The location is a park on the southern shore of the Swan River, at Norm McKenzie Reserve, 85 Riverside Rd, East Fremantle and it will be open 9:30 to 2:00pm.
Details (and Application Form) can be found on their website http://eastfremantle.wa.lions.org.au or downloaded from the link below.
The markets are being supported by Booragoon and Fremantle Clubs, but any other LIONS who are interested (and enjoy) markets are welcome to enquire, and earn $ revenue for their own club through their participation.
Please check with East Fremantle LIONS for details and how it works …. Someone who can help with bookings etc will be especially welcome to enquire, and they of course will be a shoe-in for participation on the day of the events as well.
The picture shows an aerial view of the location.
Stall-holder enquiries are welcome, and not for profit organisations will be welcome with special consideration; for example, our friends at Rotary will have a spot promoting their “Shelterbox” programme for disaster relief.
We seek LIONS support in attendance, and even just helping hands (and minds) to make this new market a success for many years to come.
