November 2009 sees the 33rd Lions District 201V2 Convention hosted by the Lions Club of Camperdown - the "Lakes & Craters Convention". The Camperdown Lions Club also happens to be 30 years old in 2009.
For full details, see the the Convention information on the Camperdown Lions website.
There will be a "Fantasyland & Nursery Rhymes" themed banquet, short trips to the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge, or a Cheese or Chocolate Factory, a Whiskey Distillery, or a local Winery or for the really energetic, the Otway Fly (rainforest walk). There will also be the opportunity to check out the whales at Warrnambool or tackle some of (or all) the newly opened Timboon-Naroghid Rail Trail by bike or foot. For further details on the planned activities, see Camperdown Lion's Activities webpage.
The closing date for registration is 30 September 2009 - so if you're going to go and haven't yet registered, no is the time!

Planning continues for this year's Walk To Wurdale fund-raiser.
The Winchelsea Lions Club recently donated a novel gift to the residents at Hesse Rural Health's Chelsea Lodge - a Nintendo Wii games console. With wireless remote controls that feature movement sensors, the Wii includes games such as bowling, tennis, golf, and baseball. The games are easy to learn, and can be played either standing up or sitting down, and require fairly natural movements that simulate the real thing.
Hesse Rural Health Director of Nursing, Ann Davis, thanked the Lions Club for the generous support. The Wii games will be incorporated into the current activity program at Chelsea Lodge. The Wii will also be available for shared activity between generations when children and grandchildren visit.
