A Celebration Dinner was held in Robertson on Saturday, 12th May 2018 to mark the rebirth of the Lions Club of Robertson!
The Lions Club of Robertson was chartered on 13th June 1973 by the then International President George Friedricks , Through the years the club was involved in many projects and touched the lives of many people.
Sadly however, over the last three years the decline in membership resulted in the Club being dormant for over a year….
But that is all history!
With the support and motivation of LP Faezal Karriem of the Lions Club of Worcester and PCC Seymour Abrahams of the Lions Club of Kirstenbosch the Lions Club of Robertson was reborn on Saturday, inducting 18 new members into the Lions family and starting a new chapter for the Club – a new beginning.
The incoming officers for the forthcoming year are:
Club President: Tracey – Lee Scheepers
Vice President: Melvyn Munnik
Secretary: Noeleen Isaaks
Treasurer: Aubrey Michaels
Membership: Rozanne Michaels
Service Chairperson: Jamiel Abrahim
PRO: Deon Scheepers
Congratulations to all the members of The Lions Club of Robertson. It can be seen already that the Club is excited and unified and ready to SERVE!
The Incoming Officers for the new Lionistic year have been elected and on Saturday, 12 May 2018 they found out what the year ahead entails for them!
A record of ninety Incoming Officers met at the Rondebosch Girls High School for training on their portfolios for 1st Vice/GLT, Treasurer, Secretary, Services/GST, Membership/GMT and Marketing & PR.
They first received an overview of all the Club Portfolios, what the implementation of GAT entails and details of DGE Rocky’s goals for the future year. Following this they attended the training for their individual portfolios.
Well done to PDG Liz Houston who convened the day with expert precision and to all attended.
Wishing all Club Office bearers a wonderful year ahead!
DC for Youth, Charlie Flanagan is very happy to announce that the International Youth Exchange Program will again take place this year from Sunday, 15th July to Sunday, 22nd July 2018. This year the students are all girls who hail from Finland, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
DC Charlie would like to hear from you if you and your Club are able to host one/or two of the girls during their stay. Ideally, the family hosting the girl/s should have a teenage son and/or daughter who can be involved with the activities planned by your Club during their stay. In return, as the program is modelled around “true Cultural Youth Exchange”, at the end of the year (December/January), our youths will be able to go overseas and be hosted by one of the four families in Europe.
So there will be 2 lots of 2 girls who will get hosted in District 410A and then four South African youths who will be hosted by the four families in Europe at the end of the year.
Leos – this is also a wonderful opportunity for you! Why not be a part of the Youth Exchange Program and if your Club hosts one of the girls, then one of your Leo members will be able to travel overseas at the end of the year!
This way there can be reciprocity and our Youth can also get to experience different counties and cultures.
If you would like to host these young ladies please let DC Charlie know and I can fill you in on all the details of how the various options can work. He can be contacted on Cellular 082 894 3287.
