    Lion Ross is Recognised

    Lions never ask for recognition or awards, but we do like to recognise those that serve their community.

    Lion Ross Wallis is a great example of a Lion, he never asks for recognition, but year in year out, he gives freely of his time, labour and means. The contribution he has made to Lions, the community and the needy has been enormous.

    At our recent changeover meeting, the Lions Club of Geelong Corio Bay bestowed the Salt & Pepper Award upon Ross. In our club, the Salt & Pepper award goes to the Lion that has "been in everything," which describes Ross to a T.

    We thank Ross for his ongoing contributions to his community, and for making our Lions Club such a wonderful club to be a part of.

    Successful Lions Village Licola Camp 284 of 2017 for deserving Barwon Region children

    Fundraising on behalf of deserving children in the care of Geelong’s’ family support agencies and primary schools by the Lions Club of Geelong Corio Bay was very successful during 2016. The sponsorship fee for one child aged 8 to 11 years to attend a Lions Village Licola
    five day camp is $285. Viva Energy, the Geelong Community Foundation, Geelong Connected Communities, Bendigo Bank, the Howard Glover Family Trust and the Dawn Wade Foundation provided $26,420 while the Lions Clubs of Geelong Corio Bay, Torquay, Geelong Breakfast and Geelong made generous contributions which increased the total funding to $40,380. Due to the popularity of sponsoring children to Camp 248 by other local Lions Clubs, the Lions Club of Geelong Corio Bay set aside $27,930 to fund 98 children, while the other clubs in the Geelong – Barwon Region funded 50 children. The expectation was that 148 children would attend the Monday morning departure locations in Geelong and Corio; disappointingly, only 127 children attended the departure points and they were accompanied by the 34 volunteer leaders. Our LVL committee was faced with a first time ever experience of residue funding for 40 children’s positions. The committee has already agreed to allocate the residual funding and positions for children for attendance at the forth-coming Camp 287 or 3rd - 7th April, 2017.

    It can now be said that Camp 284 was a resounding success - the weather was warm and the activities were challenging and first time activities for many of the children. The volunteers did a great job managing the children. So the timing is right for the Lions Club of Geelong Corio Bay to now say to all of the philanthropies and volunteers - “Thank you once again for your ongoing sponsorship and support of deserving children to attend Lions Village Licola. You may be assured that your generosity is appreciated by all of the children”.

    We are now gearing up for a successful Camp 287 to take place during the April school holidays; all positions have already been taken and advertisements are now attracting volunteer carers.

    Long Walk for Leukodystrophy

    John Olsen, a Geelong Corio Bay Lions Member and good friend, has returned from a 5800km walk crossing Australia diagonally. He set off in April 2016 from Cape York in Far North Queensland, and arrived just over nine months later, at Cape Leeuwin in Western Australia.

    John was walking to raise money for Leukodystrophy, a debilitating disease that affects the nerves, spinal cord and brain. It is John's aim to raise over $100,000 to assist in the research required to defeat Leukodystrophy.

    Please check out a video about John and his walk:
