THE CHARTER

The Lions Club of San Fernando sponsored the Lions Club of Les Efforts, formerly the Lioness Club of San Fernando.  The Club received its charter from The International Association of Lions Club on 4th August 1992. Charter President, Lion Alma Thomson, MJF had the honor of receiving the Charter Certificate from Past Council Chairman, Lion Collette John, PMJF.

 Lion Kenneth Raymond a member of our sponsoring club was appointed as the Guiding Lion.

THE SAGA OF THE TRAIN

It was in April 1991 when the 10th Anniversary Committee of the Lioness Club of San Fernando headed by Lioness Juliana Chung met to discuss the activities for the Club’s 10th Anniversary, which was to be celebrated in July of that year.  The items listed for discussion included the design of the Club’s 10th Anniversary Pin, which the Chairman suggested should be done in keeping with a San Fernando landmark.

Members began brain-storming and came up with suggestions such as the San Fernando Hill, the San Fernando Library and Kings Wharf, until Lioness Phyllis Alexander-Ross said “let us use the last train to San Fernando.”  Everyone agreed immediately and the 10th Anniversary Pin of the Lioness Club of San Fernando was designed depicting the “Train”.

Later in the fiscal year, The International Association of Lions Clubs gave a mandate, inviting all Lioness Clubs to change their status to Lions Clubs.  The Lioness Club of San Fernando opted for the change, and when chartered as the Lions Club of Les Efforts, the train was taken as part of our identity and still remains as such.

SIGNATURE PROJECT

Camp Lucky

“Camp Lucky” is an annual activity of the Lions Club of Les Efforts.   It is a vacation fun camp that caters for children between the ages 7-10.  The name “Camp Lucky” originated during the fiscal year 1997-1998 when Justice Anthony Lucky became an honorary member of the Lions Club of Les Efforts.  Since then he has always made a cash donation to this activity.

The Vacation Fun Camp is one of the projects, which we brought with us when we changed from the Lioness Club of San Fernando and chartered as the Lions Club of Les Efforts.  The Camp is conducted for two weeks in July and starts on the Monday immediately after school is closed.

The objective is to provide a service in which both parents and children can have fun and enjoy a part of the summer vacation, without being in company with each other.

BIRTH OF THE LEOS CLUB OF LES EFFORTS

 The Leo Club of Les Efforts was chartered in June 1993 with a membership of 28; comprising of students from secondary schools and many whose parents were members of the Lions Club of Les Efforts. 

Leo Jhowell Kangalee, the daughter of former Lion Lystra Kangalee served as Charter President of the newly formed Leo Club. Leo Jhowel received the Charter certificate from Past District Governor Lion Gerard Jackson; at a most resplendent function, held at the Presentation College, San Fernando, in the presence of Les Efforts Lions and District Officers. 

Lion Alma Thomson was appointed Leo Advisor, a position, which she holds to date.

The Lions Club of Les Efforts is the proud sponsor of the Leo Club of Les Efforts.

LCIF - LIONS CLUB INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION - THE CHARITABLE ARM OF THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF LIONS CLUBS

The Lions Club of Les Efforts is one, which has always asserted itself to this request, and this was quite evident in our participation in Campaign Sight First I and II.  We have 19 Melvin Jones Fellows and 3 Progressive Melvin Jones Fellows. In an effort to keep the momentum and assist LCIF in achieving its objective, the Lions Club of Les Efforts decided to offer members “The subsidized Melvin Jones Fellow Award and the Progressive Melvin Jones Fellow Award” (MJF/PMJF) Program, which was introduced to the membership in the fiscal year 2014-2015.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

In retrospect, we can say that the Lions Club of Les Efforts is full of drive and ambition. It has been a pleasure for us to move from the manual, to the electric typewriter into the computer age. 95% of our membership is computer literate and as such Minutes of meetings and other correspondence are sent to members via e-mail thus making communication amongst members more effective.

Fiscal Year 2003-2004, Lion Jean Creese applied to Lions International for our club to be placed on the LionNet, which gives a quick glance of the Lions Club of Les Efforts.  This continues to be her pride and joy, for she still maintains this page, even though we have gone a step beyond.

Fiscal Year 2014-2015 saw the birth of the Club’s Website and Facebook Page, which was built by Lion Bernadette Roberts who brought her mastery of skills in Information Technology to our club.  Lion Bernadette is the Web Master.

Updated information and photographs of events of our club can be seen on Facebook.  Facebook has now become a past time for members and their friends to post on the Timeline, Shares, Likes and Comments with their friends and other members of the Lions fraternity.
