Lions Club of Geelong Breakfast
The Lions Club of Geelong Breakfast was formed by people who had a strong emphasis on youth and this remains the strong focus.
We are unique because we meet at 6.45 am for our meetings. This allows members who do not have time in the evenings to serve their community
NEWS!! We have news!
This year our Club was able to encourage 4 schools to participate in the Peace Poster Competition. We are very indebted to the Principals and Teachers that encouraged the students to provide a poster.
We were able to retain 4 of the schools from last year, Belmont Primary, Newcomb Park Primary, Ashby Primary and Bell Park North Primary.
The winning poster from each school was taken to the District Convention last weekend where the District judging took place. Unfortunately none of our posters were successful however as usual the judges had a very difficult job selecting the winner.
Over the next couple of weeks we will present the 1st 2nd and 3rd place getters with their gift cards and Lions International Achievement Award Certificate to the 1st place getter, at their school assembly’s. I will advise everyone the dates of these assembly’s once they are organized.
This year because the Principals and Teachers have been really great to work with I would like to propose that we present the schools with a Certificate of Appreciation at the same time as we present the other awards at the school assembly’s.
The place getters for each school are as follows:
School 1st place 2nd place 3rd place
Belmont Primary Ruby Taylor Alyssa Marin Megan Dickson
Bell Park North Primary Hana Makas Paige Drew Mitra Afghan
Newcomb Park Primary Leah Keegan Khye Thomas Lucy Cummings
Ashby Primary Lily Farrell – Bradbury Zavier Mcgill Anne Cavenett

Corrin Demeo, Jessica Vella, Jacinta Van Etten Winner: Jessica Vella and Stephanie Asher
On Tuesday October 13 we held the Club Final of the Youth of the Year project at the St George Workers Club in Geelong West.
We were fortunate to have 3 wonderful young people participating: Corrin Demeo and Jacinta Van Etten from Sacred Heart College and Jessica Vella from Saint Ignatius College, Drysdale.
The standard was particularly high and the judges, Stephanie Asher, Bev Davis and Gary Work had a particularly hard time in determining the results.
Our congratulations go to all three paticipants for "having a go", but in particular to Jessica who won both the public speaking and was the Overall winner. Jessica will now go on to represent our club at the Zone Final in March 2016.
We also thank the teachers from both schools who supported their young people at the event.
