Message from DG Ian.
If anyone receives an email from the address firstname.lastname@example.org purporting to be from DG Ian, starting with "Are you less busy at the moment", this is a scam. Please delete & block. It appears to have only gone out to Cabinet Officers at this stage. Many thanks. ... See MoreSee Less
Yes received it this morning, deleted straight away as it was similar to the one that came out some months ago 😮
I got one this morning saying you wanted to discuss a discreet topic you wanted me to help solve. Said to reply by email only as you were going into a meeting and couldn’t be disturbed. Came under Youth Exchange banner
I got one as well thought it sounded similar to one last year deleted it
Have you voted for DGE Savva's entry yet in Artforce Brisbane's traffic signal box paintings? Entries close 31 Jan. What a great way to have our service promoted in our Community. Vote at www.artforcebrisbane.com.au/artwork/planting-seeds-of-hope/ .Here's a great opportunity for all Lions to promote one of our Lions 75th Anniversary Garden contributions and highlight our Lions work in the community.
Artforce Brisbane is asking people to vote for their favourite artwork on Brisbane's traffic signal boxes. Q1 DGE Savva Argyrou created a gorgeous tribute to Lions community service by painting a garden to recognise our 75th Anniversary in Australia.
Do you remember little "Heaven", the orphaned koala joey who made an appearance at our 201Q1 Convention last November? Here's an update to show you her progress to date. She's happily munching away on her eucalyptus leaves at the Queensland Koala Society Inc and is now close to 3kg and will hopefully be ready for release soon. The generosity of so many at the Convention helped fund the work of QKS and Heaven's care.
The comment section below will show you a video of Heaven with her koala pal Chandler.
A message from DG Ian.It's been wonderful today to see how Australia Day has been embraced by so many of our Clubs. Congratulations to all those in our District who have been honoured with awards but also to those Clubs who have helped welcome new Australians to our Community by hosting Citizenship ceremonies. After attending my own Club's ceremony this morning, it's very rewarding seeing the joy on so many faces as they take the oath to become one of our new citizens. I've also enjoyed seeing posts of Clubs having a social get-together to celebrate this special day and promoting "fun in service".
Australia Day is the day to celebrate the free spirit of our Nation and to spread the message of peace, diversity, harmony and unity. Lion Therese and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Australia Day.
