SUNRAYSIA LEOS CHARTER
Members and partners from Sunraysia Lions clubs gathered together to be a part of the Sunraysia Leos Charter on 1st March in Mildura.
All the Sunraysia Lions clubs - Irymple, Merbein, Mildura, Buronga Gol Gol & Districts, and Red Cliffs – helped the new Club financially to get off the ground.
Helen and I were present on the day to help celebrate, along with Past DG Ron Pascoe and Nina, National Leo Chairman Martin Peebles, and Zone Chairman Peter Bryce. Peter has been the key Lion in helping the formation of the Club.
But it is Katerina Blecik who has been the driving force in forming the Sunraysia Leo Club after going right through to the national YOTY final in 2013.
It is privilege to know these blokes and girls. They will do better than give the new Club their best shot. – they will succeed in what they want to achieve.
I believe that this new Club will have a major spinoff effect with the formation of further clubs of Leos, Lioness & Lions in C2.
Certificates were given to the club Presidents, along with a bottle of a special edition of the (in)famous “Garage Hermitage”.
Katerina most ably thanked all the clubs, guests and Lions members and her fellow charter members who have helped to get the Club off to a flying and exciting start
