DISTRICT 105D SUPPORT THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS

SOGB Sheffield logoIn 2010 I listened to Lawrie McMenemy address our national convention in Leeds. He reduced many of us to tears of emotion as he described his work with the Special Olympics organisation and his speech motivated me to volunteer at the next national games in Bath in 2013.

It proved to be the most fulfilling, and rewarding, week of my time as a member of Lions Clubs!  Together with the dozens of other Lions from around the country, including many from our own District, I experienced the same emotions Lawrie had described 3 years earlier. This was the true meaning of what we do in Lions - “We Serve”.

In 2016, my experiences led my son, who lives in Los Angeles, to volunteer at the Worldwide Games in California - with the same result.

In 2017 - our Centennial year - Lions will again be supporting the next National Special Olympics GB (SOGB) Games in Sheffield with 3,000 athletes and 5,000 family members (many from our area) by providing the Families Programme. I will be there working directly for SOGB as an event coordinator at the football tournament.

Before that happens, I am proud to say that Lawrie McMenemy has accepted my invitation to speak at our District Convention in Bournemouth; local Special Olympics athletes will also be there as meters and greeters.

Consequently, I am asking the Clubs and Members of District 105D to raise funds and donate them to our District Special Olympics Appeal Fund. Why? Please visit our Special Olympics website page and take time to view the videos. /news/specialolympics.html 

Thank you

David Taylor

District Handover

The new District 105D Cabinet pictured at the Handover Ceremony at the Hilton Hotel Southampton

Over 80 Lions from throughout the South of England with their partners and guests gathered at the Hilton Hotel, Southampton on 17th July for the District Handover. This a formal handover celebration took the form of a cream tea when Lions members from as far afield as the Channel Islands to Maidenhead and Warminster to Windsor met to thank the outgoing District Governor Alan Chapman and welcome the incoming District Governor David Taylor. Also formally welcomed were members of the 2016/17 Cabinet, pictured above. The new Zone Chairmen are seated and the remaining Cabinet are standing in this group photograph.

Jenny Bithell of Hythe and Waterside Lions Club is presented with the Best Zone Chairman Award by Immediate Past District Governor Alan Chapman

During the Handover the presentations included the trophy for the best Zone Chairman, awarded by the outgoing District Governor to the Zone Chairman who has accomplished most within the District. The 2015/16 award was made to Jenny Bithell of Hythe & Waterside Lions Club. Jenny's Zone covered Lions Clubs in Christchurch, Hythe and Waterside, Lymington and Brockenhurst, New Milton and Ringwood & Fordingbridge.  Immediate Past District Governor Alan Chapman is pictured with Jenny  to recognise her achievements with the Lions Clubs in her Zone.

Peter Burnett is the newly elected 1st Vice District Governor who will be attending the 2017 International Convention in Chicago with 50,000 Lions  from Clubs worldwide. They will be there to learn about the work of Lions Clubs across the globe, projects and Lions initiatives locally and within nations that help others as part of the Lions Motto 'We Serve'. Peter will take with him the District 105D Centenary Flag (pictured below) which is being signed by members of every Lions Club in the south of England. Disatrict Governor David Taylor and 1st Vice District Governor Peter Burnett hold the 105D banner which will be signed by every Lions Club in this District before being paraded with over 700 Banners at the International Convention in Chicago next year.This banner will join together with the flags of over 700 other Districts globally in the mass parade as a sign of Lions working together to help others.

With 2017 being the Lions Clubs International Centenary year District 105D will be taking on the Lions Centenary Challenge to serve 100 million people worldwide by July 2018. Already Lions Clubs are reaching out to help those in their communities nationally and globally by supporting youth in their communities, preventing unnecessary blindness by funding and running sight screening clinics and educational events, relieving hunger by improving access to healthy food within their communities and protecting the environment making their communities healthier places to live.
