This trip to Berlin together with the President of LCGN is SAVE-THE-DATE planned for this weekend


Must see

Jazz & BBQ on May 6, 2017 - our second social action for 2017




Most talked about

1. Berlin,

It is still possible to join in. A few of us have now booked their flights to Berlin. Geneva - Berlin EasyJet EZY 1591 on Friday 30th of June (morning). There are two possibilities for the flight back to Geneva. Either on Sunday, June 2nd or on Tuesday, June 4th (evening). Or of course at any other time. 

Christian will make a group reservation for the hotel. So please contact Christian directly to tell him how many nights you are going to stay.

Christian will also inform all members as soon as he can about the program.


2. Stamps for the Centennial

According to the multidistrict governors, each member of each Swiss Lions Club should do their duty in buying 24x 1Franc stamps sold CHF 1.50 = CHF 40.-  Many members of our club have already agreed to support this common Swiss action. I will pass the order for our club next week, so if any other member is interested, please contact me.

The benefit of this action will go to FSA (Fédération Suisse des Aveugles et malvoyants)


3. National Convention in Delémont, Jura. (Mai 12-13, 2017)

A small delegation should represent our club at the National Convention. I and Lars registered for Saturday, Mai 13th. Christian Pechner as our president will certainly join in. It would be fun if we could be five or six. The spouses are welcome, their are special activities organized for them. Please register directly on the site.


4. Centennial

Please register both as a volunteer and a visitor for the European Convention in Montreux. As Christian already mentioned, members of our clubs will be at the airport from Wednesday, September 27th to Saturday, September 29th to help.

But it is also important that a delegation of members will represent our club at the convention itself. Register at least for one day. We won’t have another European Convention organized so close to home for the next 25 years!

A big thank you to Clemens who is helping organizing a special Lionsday at the UN for the European Convention.


5. Activities:

A big thank you also to Helgard, Mitra and Stéphane who will attend the qualifying musical event (the Trumpet, this year) in Lausanne on Sunday, March 5th. This will certainly enable our club to gain knowledge in how to support a musician in the coming years. As you may know, it is part of the Lions Clubs' duty to support musicians at a very high level. A different instrument is chosen every year.


6. Lionsday, June, 10th, 2017

Our club will be visible on that special Lionsday at the marché de Carouge, from 8 am to 3 pm. (Please read the last newsletter, February, 4th). We will need people at the stand on June 10th, but we also need a few people to build a small committee to prepare the event. Please, contact me or Christian.

What everyone can do and it is easy, is to invite their friends to visit our stand on that special day. Besides, Carouge is really a nice place to be.


7. Activities of other Clubs.

It is worth mentioning that the LC La Côte is organizing a huge event for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of their Club on May 12th. It will be a fantastic ciné-concert (Les lumières de la ville de Charlie Chaplin) performed by the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande at the Rosey Concert Hall in Rolle. There are still some seats available. You can directly register on their site or through the LionsBase. 


8. Social actions old pairs of glasses,

It works very well, a big thank you to all of the members. The action will last till December 2017, so please keep your enthusiasm and continue collecting.
