  • Adapting to Change

    During the social distancing requirements imposed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic we were still able to hold our of regular meeting on 28th April 2020.

    An agenda complete with hyperlinks to all reports and correspondence had been previously sent to members via email. Members had an opportunity to peruse the business prior to the meeting which was a virtual event with 7 members present using Zoom.
    The meeting went smoothly and quickly with a certain amount of our banter. The main thing missing was the opportunity for our regular fellowship.
    Thanks to those who were able to adapt to the challenge, attend and make the first such meeting successful.

    Our next meeting has already been scheduled for 6:30pm Tuesday 12th May again using Zoom but if we are able to hold a normal dinner meeting members will be notified in advance.

    Bushfire Fundraiser Concert

    The Lions Club of Eaton is proud to have been part of the Bushfire Fundraiser Concert held at The Graham Bricknell Music Shell in Bunbury on Saturday 1st February afternoon and evening.

    Our van selling sausage sizzles (largely manned by volunteers and members of the Lions Club of Millbridge) was one of many food stalls at the event.

    All funds raised by both Lions clubs were handed directly to the organisers, (Bushfire Aid Team) on the day.

    Our stall location close to the main stage and audience area provided an excellent opportunity to showcase our Lions Clubs and sponsors.

    Australia Day 2020

    Australia Day breakfast on the Eaton Foreshore has come and gone again. This is one of our clubs largest annual events arranged and organised with inter-club cooperation between Eaton and Millbridge Lions clubs and hosted by the Shire of Dardanup.

    A Lions Train (Bunbury Wollaston), a climbing wall, bouncy castle, animal petting farm, face-painting, coffee van, choir, MC with sound system and stage, nurse and of course cooked breakfast all coordinated by the two Clubs.

    Additional support was received from local businesses:
    • Bunbury Farmers Market
    • Staley Food and Packaging
    • Coats Hire Bunbury
    • Australind Premix
    • South West Drinking Water
    • Woolworths Eaton Fair
    • Kleenheat Gas
    • Australind Premix
    • The Spud Shed Australind

    The shire funded the event to host it's Australia Day Awards presentation and Citizenship Ceremony.
    Patrons were asked to donate towards the cost of the breakfast with the funds raised being donated to the Lions Bushfire Appeal.

    Pictured is a small part of the background work in progress manned by one Lion member, and 3 additional volunteers. The van is also using the recently installed quieter and more powerful generator .

    New Generator for Catering Van.

    Thanks to assistance via a grant from the Shire of Dardanup we were able to purchase a new, powerful and much quieter generator for our van.

    Bozbuilt in Australind removed the old generator and installed the new one for us.

    With the Australia Day Breakfast fast approaching it is a relief to have a generator on the van that we can use without deafening the crowd.

    Camp Quality Wildlife Park Picnic

    On Sunday 3rd November, 4 Lions from Eaton Lions took our club catering caravan to the Bunbury Wildlife park. Everything was set up ready to cook before the Camp Quality people arrived.

    Once everyone turned up, the BBQs were fired up and the steak, sausages, onions and bread rolls provided by the club were added to the range of salads provided by Camp Quality.

    The van was cleaned out and returned to its home in the shed by 2:00pm

    On Friday 1st of November, Brian and Mary Hall attended the Lions Hall of Fame dinner where Brian was one of the nominees.

    Although Brian missed out on the main prize this year, his nomination is valid for another two years.

    Well done Brian! You are a genuine legend and treasure in the Lions Club of Eaton and have done Lions proud for almost 50 years.

    WA Hall of Fame winners for 2019 are the "THREE B'S". PDG Bruce Hearman, Lion Bev Howard and Lion Brian Williams.

    Well-deserved for all concerned. A great night was held at the Parmelia Hilton Hotel.

    Foreshore Shelters Completed

    On Thursday 31st October the Lions club of Eaton started the last stage of the current foreshore shelter upgrade.

    Shortly after committing to continuing despite a bleak weather forecast, the rain and hail arrived with a cold blast. Several times during the day the tools needed to be shifted out of the wet weather. One corner of the shelter was slightly drier in the windy conditions and this is where all retreated during the heaviest downpours.

    Despite the delays, the job was completed and around 3:00pm the plaques were installed on both the current western shelter and previously completed eastern shelter.

    The group (missing Vic who left early and David, using the camera) posed proudly near one of the four finished tables.

    Plaques at Foreshore Shelters

    Recently Chris Anderson of Eaton Laser Engraving handed President Paul several engraved stainless steel plaques and tamper-proof screws. There are enough plaques to attach one to each table in both of the Eaton foreshore shelters.

    With the first shelter already completed and the 2nd due to be upgraded next week, the timing of the labels is very timely.

    Chris does not have enough time to join a service club but has been generous enough to donate engraved items to our club on several occasions now.


    We very much appreciate the assistance from Eaton Laser Engraving and president Paul was pleased to be able present a certificate to Chris.

    1st Foreshore Shelter Completed

    On Thursday, 12th September a group of Eaton Lions descended onto the Eaton Foreshore eastern-most Lions shelter with a load of pre-painted timber.

    By the end of the day, all of the old timber had been removed from the picnic tables and bench seats and replaced with freshly painted structural pine donated by Wespine.

    Work has already started on painting the remaining timber for the next shelter which will be tackled within the next few weeks.



    Pictured is Neil painting the metalwork and others finishing a table-top.


  • Raffle Drawn

    The raffle run in conjunction with the lions Club of Dardanup and championed by Lion Gary has been drawn. Gary was present at the draw and was surprised to witness his wife's ticket drawn for 2nd prize.
    Our club sold most of our assigned books and bought the remainder with a view to allowing a re-draw if any of the club-purchased tickets won.
    In the end, our treasurer was able to pass on $400 to the InTown Centre and another $400 to the Bunbury Women's Refuge. The Dardanup Club also passed on $1,200 to be split between the two recipients.

    Eaton Foreshore Shelters upgrade

    Neil and Vic have been busy painting the timber that was donated by Wespine for the replacement seats and tabletops in the picnic shelters on the Eaton Foreshore.
    On Thursday 12th September a contingent of Lions will take the timber lengths and install them on-site.
    A culture shock was received by members when it was revealed that each volunteer needed to complete an on-line Safety Induction course prior to commencing work. The course is in addition to the safety tagged equipment and safety barriers to be in place before work can start.

    Sausage Sizzle for Clifton Park PS

    On the evening of 5th September we took our catering caravan to a new event at the Clifton Park Primary School open day.

    The team estimated the number of sausages and buns required but sold out. It is likely that another 50 buns could have been sold but we would have needed more helpers as the demand occurred suddenly and over a short period.

    At least we made about $320, some of which will be returned to the Primary School in addition to the annual amount we already hand over for their end of year awards.

    Pictured is the van ready to go, just before the rush of customers.

    Gopher Loaned Out

    Mike Anderson has identified a person in Bethanie retirement village who will need to use our gopher. Two planned operations will render Warren unable to walk for some time.
    Instead of gathering dust and needing recharging by club members, the gopher has been charged, dusted off and delivered to a grateful recipient.

    Lions’ pride for Bugler

    Recently Eaton's Lion Gary had been in touch with other Lions in Dardanup who asked for help on one of their projects. As a result, the Lions club of Eaton provided some financial assistance to a young musician who had the opportunity to travel interstate to hear his original symphony piece played live by a professional symphony orchestra in Sydney.

    Thanks from Eaton Foreshore Festival

    Our club has just received a letter from the Eaton Foreshore Festival thanking us for our invaluable support towards the 2019 Health Hub Eaton Foreshore Festival.
    In part, the letter stated "The day was a huge success and with your help we raised $22,000 for Eaton Primary School P&C" and "With the festival getting bigger each year we appreciate all the hard work the Eaton Lions Club does to make the day run smoothly with parking."
    It is gratifying that our assistance is appreciated and contributes to a local school being able to provide enhanced learning programs for the students and provide other benefits around the school.

    Signs up at Bobin St

    On the afternoon of Friday 3rd of May, a busy bee was held to erect the new signage at Bobin Street. Seven members were present (and another called past) even though the event was not organised at a meeting and notification was only sent out by email or text message. The turn-out prompted jokes about "how many people are required to change a light globe..."
    The impromptu meeting gave members present an opportunity to discuss a couple items of business that would otherwise have waited for the longer then normal 3-week gap between meetings.
    The erection of the signs makes the relocation of our club to Bobin street feel more complete.

    Driveway Painting

    A recent message from Lion Den "Bring old big paint brush, old roller and roller long handle. Water based paint supplied. Morning tea provided." resulted in 6 Lions arriving at the nominated address at 8:00 am on a Thursday.
    On arrival we could see a decent sized driveway to paint but later realised that there was a lot more out the back and another driveway on the other side of the house. After 3 full buckets of paint were brushed or rolled on the job was nearly finished. The last of the paint was used to touch the first area started but the last bucket of paint was a slightly different colour and two sections of the driveway needed to be re-painted to better blend the colours.
    Other than a short break for the morning tea provided we were finished at 11:00 am which worked out to nearly 18 man-hours.
    Pleasant weather and company made the time pass quickly and the resulting finished job was worth the effort especially after we received a donation for our work.

    Lions Awareness Days in Western Australia

    Due to the 1st Saturday of March being a Long Weekend in Western Australia we opted to approach Bunnings to host Lions Clubs at their 41 stores on Saturday 9th and Sunday the 10th of March for their "Sausage Sizzles".

    Bunnings were very happy to oblige and booked those dates for Lions clubs.

    Bunnings also allowed the Lions Clubs to have additional displays such as information booths at the stores in the foyer area. Many of the clubs took advantage of this and did display material about Lions.

    It was suggested that the clubs that held "Sausage Sizzles" should donate the proceeds to ALCCRF in conjunction with the ALCCRF Biggest BBQ competition in which Bunnings donate the major prize of a BBQ.

    Many of the clubs took advantage of this weekend Lions Awareness Day(s) and report that it was most successful exposure to the public and would look forward to repeating this again next year.

    Clubs that did not have access to a Bunnings Store were able to arrange other events on that weekend to give them exposure to the local communities.

    Many thanks to Bunnings for the assistance in this event weekend.

    Meet Clarrie, our latest recruit!

    Clarrie the Lion is the latest addition to the resources available for clubs. He has already appeared at a few Lions events since arriving in WA recently, and is shared by W1 and W2 clubs.

    Clarrie appeared at the Baldivis Bunnings community event on Saturday 28 July 2018 and was a great drawcard for young and old alike. His next outing will be at the Serpentine-Jarrahdale Fair on Saturday 11 August so if you are in the area, drop by and say hi to him. And all the other Lions who will be there.

    If your club would like to borrow Clarrie (and/or the resource trailer that is now very well stocked), you can contact the District Marketing Coordinator. His details are in your Lions 2018-2019 Planning Diary as well as the Multiple District Directory. You can check out the contents of the trailer and how to go about booking it and/or Clarrie by logging in to the Member section of this website and clicking on the Member Resources tab.

    East Fremantle Lions Markets

    East Fremantle Club has obtained approval from the Town of East Fremantle to conduct a market on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

    The location is a park on the southern shore of the Swan River, at Norm McKenzie Reserve, 85 Riverside Rd, East Fremantle and it will be open 9:30 to 2:00pm.

    Details (and Application Form) can be found on their website http://eastfremantle.wa.lions.org.au or downloaded from the link below.

    The markets are being supported by Booragoon and Fremantle Clubs, but any other LIONS who are interested (and enjoy) markets are welcome to enquire, and earn $ revenue for their own club through their participation.


    Please check with East Fremantle LIONS for details and how it works …. Someone who can help with bookings etc will be especially welcome to enquire, and they of course will be a shoe-in for participation on the day of the events as well.

    The picture shows an aerial view of the location.

    Stall-holder enquiries are welcome, and not for profit organisations will be welcome with special consideration; for example, our friends at Rotary will have a spot promoting their “Shelterbox” programme for disaster relief.

    We seek LIONS support in attendance, and even just helping hands (and minds) to make this new market a success for many years to come.

    Contact: Alan Springett, on behalf of East Fremantle LIONS club,
    a.springett@optusnet.com.au 0402 499 049.
