Ulladulla Milton Lions President Pam Breaks Ground on the New Lions DenCongratulations to President Pam, Secretary Allan, 1st Vice President Gwen as well as members present and past who have worked to fund and bring this project to fruition.
A remarkable day that has been a long time coming. Lions President Pam turned the sod/ dirt/ clay, on Ulladulla Milton Lions clubs new Den site this morning, Saturday 28 September, 2019. Its spring, time for renewal and new beginnings.
2014 The Lions Den was removed from it's long time location, in preparation for the widening of Burrill Lake Bridge.
Over the intervening 5 years there have been 4 locations offered, considered and rejected for assorted reasons.
It seems 5th time is the charm, in this instance. The location is marvellous. Lions Den will be located immediately west of the Dunn Lewis Youth Centre.
Although the site brought its own complications; with perseverance, persistence and a tiny bit of intervention: Ground has been broken.
Work has begun to make Den reality and that friends is worth celebrating!
Ulladulla Milton Lions Junior Public Speaking ContestAt the Ulladulla Milton Lions Dinner meeting of 18 September we enjoyed the Junior Public Speaking program.
Participants presented from the Ulladulla and districts primary schools with the winning contestants being:
Jamaca-Rose Martin of Ulladulla Primary School representing years 5 & 6
Jaya Pinn of Milton Public School representing years 3 & 4.
Thank you to the schools and staff who encourage participation in these out of school activities, our gratitude to the parents who support their young family members, by chaperoning them to the event and our especial thanks to the school children who work so hard and step out to participate in these 'life skills' developing opportunities.
Peace PosterPrimary school children of the Ulladulla District were invited to participate in the Peace Poster, a Lions International initiative that gives some of our younger community members the oppotunity to consider and discuss what is an inclusive and tolerant society, what will generate harmony and peace in our immediate and world community.
The children generate artwork to reflect their interpretation of the concepts discussed and these were presented to the community at the Ulladulla Milton Lions Club dinner meeting of 4 September.
A panel of suitably qualified judges evaluated the artworks and 3 were selected to be presented at the Lions District Conference and an additional work earned an encouragement award.
Progressing art works were undertaken by:
Anthony Campisi of Milton Public School in the 10 years age group;
Maddi Reid of St Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Parish School, Milton for 11 years;
Maya Hargreaves of Ulladulla Public School for 12 years age group; and
Jasper Tay was recipient of the Encouragement Award.
UM Lions are grateful to;
Our local primary schools and teachers for opening the dialogue with the students;
the students who participate in Peace Poster;
the parent of those students who actively encourage by bringing the children out on a school night to participate with Lions
our panel of judges both of whom, due to commitments in remote places, were not able to stay for the awards presentation.

Shellharbour Lions Club new CharterAllan McDonald, Alison Clarke, Gwen Rava and Margaret Tenkate attended the Chartering of the new Lions Club of Shellharbour on Sunday 22 February.
Alison, Gwen and Margaret told us all about it at our dinner meeting on 4/3/2015.
"The Chartering of any new Lions Club is always a cause for celebration but for the Lions Club of Shellharbour it is especially so as we are, in a sense, being ‘reborn’.
The original Shellharbour Lions Club was chartered on 21 April 1961and was very active in the local community until 1987 when it ceased operation. The Club played a leading role in establishing the Mount Warrigal Nursing Home (now Warrigal Care). A number of the Club members were Board Members of the Nursing Home. The original club was also involved in establishing the Blue Haven aged care facility in Kiama.
We are delighted that Norm Rowland, one of the original Shellharbour Lions Club charter members has consented to becoming our Club’s Patron."

Youth of the Year 2014Wednesday 17 September saw the Club finals of the Lions Club Youth of the Year (YOTY) Competition, now in its 50th Year. Finalists were Jacob Williams (Ulladulla High School), David Robertson (Ulladulla High School), Anna-Lee Hodalj (Shoalhaven Anglican School), Danielle Woszatka (Shoalhaven Anglican School) and Charlie Guerit (Shoalhaven Anglican School). Thanks to the judges, Karen Bashford, Simon Law and Sylvia Franklin.
The Youth of the Year Quest aims to select an outstanding young individual to be an ambassador for his/her country and to travel overseas under the auspices of Lions International. This is a prestigious event for young people, which boasts many high profile Australians amongst the ranks of former entrants. These include: Kevin Rudd; Peter Beattie, past premier of Queensland; the ABC’s Sabra Lane and Senator Simon Birmingham.
The presentations given by these students were outstanding, and judging proved to be difficult, with the results being very close. After hearing answers from the contestants to two impromptu questions, as well as a prepared speech the judges came to their decisions.
Congratulations to David Robertson (Ulladulla High School) who was awarded the YOTY Public Speaking Award, as well as Club YOTY Award. He will now go on to represent the region at the district level.
