Almost 200 members and guests joined together in the evening of December 4th to celebrate our club’s 16 years of services. Everyone enjoyed a night of great food, great entertainment and raffle prize draw. Many guests returned home with auctioned items. A fellow member of Vancouver Diamond Lions Club was the lucky one to win the grand prize of raffle draw – a compaq netbook computer. Most important of all, altogether we had raised $2,500 for Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides.
Representatives from Big Brothers were among us and recieved a cheque of $2,220 which our club had raised in late October in Bowl for Big Brother campaign.
Thanks to the hard work of all members, this year our club had raised $2,160 for Big Brother! The function was filled with fun and jokes and laughter.
Our club is always the first to start bowling for Big Brother because we wanted it in October. Thanks to the fellow staff at Big Brother who make the arrangement for us. They even re-opened the online pledge site for us to use.
That means you can still use the online pledge site to continue collecting pledge to get better incentive at the end of the campaign next year in April. The money we raised will be added to Big Brother’s total Bowl for Big Brother campaign for 2011. To get to the online pledge site, click here.

Welcome Jeremy Wong, friend of PP Lion Thomas to our regular meeting on October 12 and joining our club. Jeremy is a Certified Financial Planner whose office is in Richmond. That makes him neighbour of PP Thomas, PP Jose and Lion Vivian Lo!
Members who present also got to sneak peek the preproduction sample of the new Charity Toy for 2011, “Jolly Rabbit and Angel McDull”. It is quite “huggable”. Just look at 1st VP Lion May.

It is a perfectly sunny day. The scene is perfectly beautiful. The food is perfectly good. Our guests are perfectly great. I think we are perfectly having fun! It is perfect! President Menjou said it all.
“Dear Lion Members’
Thanks to Chairs Raymond and May, we had a successful Volunteer BBQ party yesterday with the cooperation of good weather. Special mention goes to Raymond, his wife Bing San for going at 8:30am in the morning to reserve a good and convenient sport for us, and especially Bing San for attending to the BBQ all day. IPP Johnny for picking up the meat supply, moving the BBQ, counting and setting up the jar of candy for the game. PP Thomas and CP Daniel for the quiz and game contests. Lion Dorothy for making and decorating three delicious salads.
It was very gracious of Mr. Kelly Chow of Dollar Meat to donate the Maui ribs, and grace our party with his wife Sharon and their children. A special thanks to Mr. Philip Hui of Quantum Seafood who donated the delicious salmon which is good either cooked or raw. PP Harold brought a loudspeaker which saved our vocal cords.
It was too bad that the parking was so limited. Lion Clarence came even though he was a little under the weather, but he had to leave because he couldn’t get a parking spot. He shown the true Lion spirit. I understood that his case is not unique. Maybe we have to carpool or find a spot with more parking next year.
