Message from your new District Governor Lion Alan Good.

District 105sw DG's Team
Here we go!
I have attended the District Governors’ training in Toronto, I have my certificate to say I completed the training, and I have been officially
inaugurated (not as painful as it sounds) as your District Governor. I am really looking forward to the year! The International Convention was a great success with nearly 30000 Lions and partners enjoying the events and camaraderie. I know I have made many new Lion friends!

The roads were shut down, the sun was shining and the crowds were amazing for the Parade of Nations. We were lucky to have an early start in the parade standings and moved off at about 20 past 10 in the morning. We had our flags waving and were led by a piped band, were followed by a London Transport double decker bus. We finished and decided a nice cool beer was in order. Earlier in the afternoon on the way back to the Hotel we could see the parade still going. I was told it finally finished at 3:30pm.

Talking to other District Governors it is apparent that the problems we experience in the SW of falling and ageing membership is the same everywhere. But I don’t want us to be the same as everyone else! I want SW to be the best district in 105 British Isles and Ireland and I would hope you all do too! We as individuals have invested, and are still investing, a lot of time as Lions helping and supporting our communities.

Our new International President Lion Joe Preston has shared his vision, and his songs, of Strengthen the Pride and has asked us to strengthen our organisation through Service, Membership Development, Leadership, and Creativity and last but not least your Club. He has introduced the Ask One campaign and urges each Lion to ask one person to join Lions.

I had a great time at the District Handover. Thank you to those who attended making it such an enjoyable time. Disappointingly the numbers were down on previous years and for those of you who did not come along, I am sure David Atkins would like to have your thoughts so that we can make changes, if necessary, for future years. Was it the venue, the time, date or price that was the problem for you? Or anything else that put you off attending? If we don’t know, we cannot change things, so pop him an email.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Marianne for all the hard work she undertook last year on your behalf as your District Governor. I firmly believe that if we look for new ideas, new ways of doing things and challenge the status quo we will see SW becoming even stronger as a District with a new vitality that we can take forward through our service to the public and also increase our membership.

Fellow Lions let us do the work we need to do, and have the fun doing it we deserve. I look forward to working with you all and helping you do just that. The future is bright; the future is blue and yellow.

District Governor Lion Alan

Seaton & Districts Lions Club Peace Poster Presentations.

Monday 21st July saw Seaton & District Lions Club members visit the local schools that took part in this years annual Lions Club International Peace Poster Competition.

Each year, Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace. For more than 25 years, millions of children from nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest.

The theme of the 2014-15 Peace Poster Contest is "Peace, Love and Understanding." Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, are eligible to participate.
Each poster is judged on originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme.

Posters advance through several judging levels: local, district, multiple district and international. At the international level, judges from the art, peace, youth, education and media communities select one grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners.

This year pupils from Seaton Primary School, Beer Primary School and Colyton Primary School took part competition and members of the Seaton & District Lions Club visited each school to announce the winner and award prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.

Lions come to the aid of Seaton Brownies.

Seaton & District Lions Club recently received an appeal for help off Linda Carter the Leader of the 2nd Seaton Brownies to buy some new camp beds.

The 2nd Seaton Brownies are soon off to their summer camp at the end of August and needed to replace some of their older camp beds for both Brownies and their leaders.

Seaton & District Lions Club responded and gave a cheque for £200 which was used to replace 8 beds for Brownies and 6 adult beds for the leaders.

This ensures that the 24 strong group of Brownies together with 6 adult leaders all get a good night sleep whilst at summer camp.

On Friday 18th July Seaton & District Lions Club gave a presentation cheque of the £200 to the 2nd Seaton Brownies and saw the new beds that had been bought with the money.
