GREAT NEWS: 2018 / 2019

 PRESIDENT:     Rob Royal
 SECRETARY:   Sandy Royal
 TREASURER:   Ken Bradford  

Gleeson Wetlands...over 5,000 seedlings planted already, a great start. Most of the weeds have been sprayed with herbicide and Clare Council have placed rocks in two of the deepest washouts.  We have already spread rye corn seed along these washouts to help stabilise the soil, just starting to germinate. A working bee will be held on the last Sunday of each month. Working bees will start about 9.00am, and finish around 12.00 noon. Fine weather on the way and we will need to mulch. Dave Clarke will be on site.

    CARERS BREAKAWAY PROGRAMME

    Carers Breakaway Programme is a joint venture between Clare Lions and SA Country Carers. This project allows the carers, thru the genorousity of our local B&B operators, a chance to have a well deserved rest for a night or two.

    A good number of our local operators have donated a night or two throughout the year so that carers can have the break they deserve.

    Initiated in 2014 by Clare Lions, the first year was considered to be a great success.

    We are currently contacting these operators to see if they would be happy to participate again this year.

    LIONS GREEN TEAM.....GLEESON WETLANDS

    Clare Lions now have a very high profile project to manage, The Gleeson Wetlands Project. This is a Joint Venture with the Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council. The essence of the project is to, in combination with local community groups, plant or supervise the planting of hundreds of indigenous tube stock throughout the Wetlands. There are 3 ponds, all of which need some level of attention. This would include the spraying of weed infestation, planting and mulching of all these areas.

    This is a project that will take the image of Clare Lions in a different direction to what we have seen in the past.Now ,there is nothing at all wrong with the old sausage sizzle, but that is all the general public sees us as being involved in. Hopefully an event like this, with the correct promotion, will help to change the publics image of Clare Lions.

    This project will take some time and effort, but will have huge benefits for the Community, Clare Lions and the Clare Council.

    Stay tuned!!
