District LEO of the Year FinalLeo of the Year V6 District final for 2018.
Hosted by the Yarrawonga Lions Club.
On Sunday 11th March 2018 the V6 District “Leo of the Year” final was held at the Yarrawonga Lions clubrooms, which is a fantastic facility in the Showgrounds.
The final was contested by Leo’s from the following Leo Clubs. Leo Jazzy Burke represented the Benalla Leo Club, and Leo Jesse Beresford represented the Cobram on the Murray Leo Club, and Leo Jazmin Clarke represented the Tungamah Leo Club. Unfortunately, the Rochester representative Leo Caitlin Allman was unable to take part in the final. The Judges for the final were, retired Schoolteacher Mrs Sandra Hart and retired Policeman Mr Ron Stone and Past District Governor Lion Stephen Kazenwadel, our sincere “thank you” to the Judges for a difficult task well done. I would also like to thank Yarrawonga Lions Club President Doug Randel and the Club Members for accepting to Host this final, and all of the club members that assisted on the day of the final.
My personal thank you, and also from those in attendance, to Catering Chairperson Lion Debbie Jans Van Corler and her helpers, for providing such great food requirements on the day, which always happens when you attend a Yarrawonga Lions Club function, it was very much appreciated by all in attendance.The winner of the Public Speaking Final was Leo Jazmin Clarke and the overall winner was Leo Jazzy Burke, we all wish Leo Jazzy good luck for the 2018 Victorian State Leo of the Year final next Sunday 18th March 2018, which will be held at the Senior Citizens Club rooms at 192 Centre Road Narre Warren.
To add to these Leo’s performances in the final at the weekend, I would also like to advise that both Leo’s Jazzy Burke (Benalla) and Jazmin Clarke (Tungamah) also received the Honour of being Judged “Young Citizen of the Year” in the Australia Day 2018 Awards presentations in their community. In previous years other Leo Club Members and Leo Clubs have also received recognition on Australia Day, so again as Leo Chairman for our V6 District, I ask our Lions Clubs to please consider, and then also take the next step in forming a Leo Club for the Youth in your community, as they will make you very proud of their achievements in what they do in, and for your community.
District V6 Leo Chairman. Peter Poels.

Virtual SausageDear Club Members,
Your District Governor has accepted a challenge to raise $8000 in your District for Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research foundation (ALCCRF).
It is hoped with your help and support; your district will present a cheque on the main stage at the MD Convention in Townsville in May 2018, along with the other districts within MD 201.
Attached to this letter you will find some fun virtual sausage characters.
If everyone of your members purchased a character, it would be a great start to reaching our goal!
If every club matches their member’s donation, we would be three quarters of the way there.
If any club decided to take it one step further and sell them to the public at BBQ’s, shopping centres etc., your district would overwhelmingly succeed in your goal!
All funds raised need to be made out to your District and then sent to your Cabinet treasurer, labelled as District ALCCRF challenge, to be collated until your district goal is reached.
If you return the individual virtual sausage characters to your zone chairman with the names of the contributors, they will be displayed on a ‘HUGE’ wall of honour at the Multiple District Convention in Townsville.
By helping this worthwhile cause, you the members will be responsible for helping ALCCRF reach their quest to have a 100% survival rate from Childhood Cancer.
I thank you in advance for your support of our 2017/18 District Governors challenge and I look forward to seeing your district represented on the main stage of the MD convention in Townsville.
Should you require any further Information please do not hesitate to contact me via any of the contact methods listed below.
