Training for New Trainers

Training for the up and coming new trainers for District 410A took place at the Lions Club of Paarl on Saturday, 07th April 2018.  Twenty seven enthusiastic Lions attended the training and enjoyed the new-look interactive training that took place.

Well done to PDG Liz Houston and Nadine Butler and the team for facilitating such an event which is much needed in the organisation.

Feedback regarding the course so very positive.  Lion Isabel Ormandy of the Lions Club of Milnerton was so overcome by the training she wrote:

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! I loved it I loved it! Just to add my sincere thanks ….. with the rest of the team ….. to Nadine and Liz for an incredible learning experience!

We were asked … no, we were commanded to have fun …. and we sure did enjoy and then some!

The day was jam-packed full of content with lots of interaction between the group … time passed quickly … a veritable A-Z of presenting a presentation… shared with us by Nadine and Liz … who presented the presentation with professionalism and aplomb .. and all the adjectives in-between!  In fact, I’m rather sorry that we don’t have a second episode tomorrow!

I have to make mention of the incredible fellowship and camaraderie .. the likes of which I have never experienced before! I’ve been banging on about it all week!  It must have something to do with the fact that Lionism attracts folk of like ilk … and I’m sure the others will agree we just can’t wait to meet up again .. perhaps even presenting at each others’ Clubs!

Can’t wait until the next Workshop!

The New Trainers are pictured above and we wish them well with their newly acquired training skills for the future.

Easter Egg Project 2018: Lions Club of Bergvliet

The Lions Club of Bergvliet received in excess of 5500 Easter eggs this year which were donated by Bergvliet and Westcott Primary Schools and also Monterery Pre-Primary School.

The members had a fun morning counting, sorting and selecting the beneficiaries for the eggs.  This resulted in deliveries to 37 homes/organisations  including Meals on Wheels, hospitals, two police stations, homeless people on the street, and physically and intellectually challenged people.

The smiles on the faces of the recipients said it all!

A HUGE thank you to the children at the schools who always support the Lions Club of Bergvliet and have been doing so for the last 24 years!

One of the beneficiaries was the Victoria Hospital in Wynberg where the Club has been handing out Easter Eggs for the last 20 years. LP Angela Niehaus is pictured here handing eggs to patient in the children’s ward.

Members also took this opportunity to bid farewell to Lion Jean Knaggs who is emigrating to Australia to be closer to her family.  Bon voyage Lion Jean!
