    Charity Craft Creators

    Charity Craft Creators - Samford Lions Community Project aka CCC (triple C)
    Once a month a group of ladies from Samford and surrounding areas get together at the Samford CWA Hall to enjoy some chatter, a cuppa and create items for charity organisations. The major recipient so far has been Lions Emergency Accommodation Centre (LEAC) receiving items worth many thousands of dollars. Items sent have included quilts, bedcovers, pillowcases, cushion covers, toys, library bags for children, and personal drawstring bags for adults. Good quality second-hand clothing for children and adults as well as toys have also been sent to LEAC.
    It is anticipated that as the "working group" grows, various items can also be made for other organisations and their clients who look forward to receiving handmade items in their time of need. Carmel Mazzeo (facilitator) says "Fundraising to donate money to an organisation is a very worthwhile cause, but the donation of a handmade item is a more personal and memorable way of letting those in need know that someone cares about them".
    Anyone is welcome to come along and help (or bring along your own project) and enjoy the company of like-minded sewaholics. The group currently varies in experience from accomplished sewers/crafters to learners and everyone is welcome as tasks offered to each person will be in accordance to their level of experience as well as free tuition along the way.
    The group will continue to apply for grants for the purchase of much needed items to continue their work, and donations from organisations and the community would also be greatly appreciated. Cheques may be made out to:
    Samford Lions CCC Project, P 0 Box 510, Samford 4520 or contact Carmel Mazzeo on 0438 723 867 for more information.

    Samford''s Krystal Fanning wins The Lions Medical Research Foundation Personality Quest

    The night of 10th July 2010 saw a pride of Lions gather at The Sebel & Citigate Hotel in Brisbane for the Grand Final of the Lions Medical Research Personality Quest.

    Samford Lions members, family and friends supported their entrant, Krystal Fanning during the final judging stage of The Quest. Krystal, who works at Elders in Samford was one of the many original entrants who has spent the last 12 months raising funds for the Lions Medical Research Foundation.

  • Peace Poster Update


    PEACE POSTER



    A Celebration of Peace



    Please note the theme for this year's Peace Poster competition is “A Celebration of Peace”. I am including in this notice some extracts from Helen Campbell National Peace Poster Chair as a reminder to those Clubs who regularly support this project and as notification to those Clubs that will be participating in this project for the first time.



    There had previously been an indication (in the January Newswire) that the Peace Poster Kits (available from National Office at a cost of $20.00 (plus postage if applicable)) were already available for purchase. However I have been advised that there has been a delay in these arriving from LCI. We are of the understanding that these will be available by late February.



    For those Clubs that include the Peace Poster competition in their Club activitites, please purchase your PP Kit and begin the process of negotiating with your local Schools to gain their support and commitment to participate in this International Youth Project competition. There are a number of items which I wish to bring to your attention as a reminder as it is very disappointing to have to withhold an entry from judging at the District level due to non-conformance of the competition rules.



    Lioness Clubs can sponsor the contest through the sponsoring Lions Club. The Winner Sticker which is attached to all entries submitted, needs to show the Lions Club details. Also keep in mind that no words are allowed on the drawing. This is clearly stated in the rules and any entry with words included must be withdrawn from submitting for judging.



    If any of the Lions are attending the MD Convention in Echuca, the winning District Posters will be on display for viewing and collection to return to the School and Student at the close of the Convention. For those Clubs who have not previously been involved in the PP competition, it is recommended that a member of your Club is appointed as PP Chair and the Club become involved in this International Youth competition. A visit to the MD Convention Peace Poster stand would be most beneficial.



    More information is available on the Lions Peace Poster website and the closing dates for last year are stated as a guidline for this current year. These will be updated for the current year shortly.



    I can be contacted by email desley.kelso@bigpond.com telephone 07 38513249 (voice message available) or mobile 0412 097670.





    Yours in Service,



    Desley Kelso
