Coast visitors at Lions zone meet
AT THE recent Lions zone dinner at Mundubbera, guest speakers from the Sunshine Coast challenged, inspired and assisted local members from Biggenden, Eidsvold, Gayndah and Mundubbera.
Rod Somerville spoke about leadership while David Watts addressed membership.
Both men said they were proud of Lions’ achievements, particularly its work to eradicate measles.
“Melinda Gates Foundation challenged Lions to raise $10 million towards this goal,” Mr Watts said.
“The deal was that if Lions raised that amount, they would contribute $5 million.
“The cost to vaccinate one person is $1 and Lions met the One Shot, One Cure, challenge and now 15,000,000 people will be vaccinated, ridding the world of measles.”
Lions members believe in putting family first, business second and devoting the re- maining time to community service.
“As with anything else in life, you get out of it what you put into it,” Mr Somerville said.
Lions clubs in the Central and North Burnett welcome new members.
Lions clubs started in Australia in 1947 and today members are taking action to ensure their valuable contribution to communities continues strongly into the future.
