Multiple District Peace Poster Judging 28th November 2015
The Multiple District Peace Poster Judging took place at the 2nd Council Meeting held in PE on 28th November 2015. It was hosted by District D – District Governor Bokkie Oberholzer and Past Council Chairperson Wally Smith who stood in for District Chairperson Ray Clarkson Brown (Peace Poster Coordinator).
Thank you for hosting this special event, for setting up the whole process and for the sourcing of the 3 experienced judges. The artwork from all the districts was very impressive and the judges had a difficult time in making a decision due to the high level and quality of the artwork. But as we know there can only be one winner at any competition. District A’s winning poster will represent our Multiple District 410 at Lions Clubs International Grande Finale Peace Poster Contest next year 2016.

This event is in aid of a school bus for the West Riding Primary School. Learners at this school are from a multi-cultural community, mainly from a low socio-economic background or single parent and/or single income homes. Therefore extra funding from parents is impossible, and even payment of school fees is irregular at best. The educators give admirable care to their learners. Not only do they give of their private time to develop the children’s progress thus reaching high pass rates, they have also introduced a feeding scheme providing breakfasts, lunches, and even food parcels for some pupils to take home.
Table View Lions
Lions Clubs – we help where help is needed in our own communities and around the world. The world’s largest service club organization.
Lions give Sight, serve youth, assist the aged, the disabled, the disadvantaged. In fact wherever there is a need there are Lions.
Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need schoolbooks, with seniors who need transportation and with people we may never meet.
We’re led by talented, dedicated volunteer leaders from around the world. And, we’re supported by the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), which helps to fund Lions humanitarian projects.
