The residents of Woornack Aged Care were visited by Santa with his helpers from the Sunshine Lions Club and the Brimbank Leos Club. This is an annual project of the Sunshine Lions Club. A specially prepared gift was given to each of the residents to help them have a great Christmas.
On the 11th of August Lion Chris Detlefsen received his 50 year Monarch in recognition of service to Lions. Visitors and friends joined the club for this auspicious occasion. District Governor Terry Heazlewood presented the Certificate and badge in recognition of this service to the Sunshine Community. He was astounded that Chris was off to Samoa to unload the container and rectify some plumbing works in Saleapaga. PDG Kerry Cook highlighted Chris’s many achievements as a lion. Including 5 time president of Sunshine Lions, Life Member, Melvin Jones Fellow and two terms on District. The night concluded with immediate past president Geoff Darker proposing a toast to Chris followed by enjoying special cup cakes to mark the evening.

Following a request from Doutta Galla Aged Care Services, the Lions Club of Sunshine partnered with the Australian Lions Foundation to purchase the Wornack Aged Care Facility in Sunshine a Robot Coupe Blixer. This machine allows the staff at Wornack to provide nutritious, tasty and visually appealing meals for those residents that have difficulty consuming normal food. This greatly improves the quality of life of these residents by ensuring they enjoy their meals and are getting proper nutrition.
The Lions Club of Sunshine especially thanks the ALF for their support of this project.

Bill joined Apex in 1963 and held positions of Secretary, Treasurer, President and District Governor District 10. For his service he was awarded Life Membership.
He joined the Lions Club of Sunshine in 1976 and served with distinction being President 79-80, Secretary 1982 – 2006 and Zone Chairman 87-88. He was awarded a Melvin Jones Fellowship in 1994 and made a Life Member in 2005.
Lions was Bill’s life until he met and married Lorraine, then it was a shared love. (Lorraine’s words)
His last task for the club was to write up the last 10 years of our history for our 60th Anniversary. As his health deteriorated he still kept abreast of Club activities receiving the monthly minutes.
In all Bill served Sunshine and the wider Lions Community for nearly 53 years. An outstanding achievement.
We honour his memory and are grateful for his lifetime of service.
