History

In 1983 the District Governors of V1, V2, V3, V4, V5 and V6 appointed a committee to consider the possibilities of the formation within the six Lions Club Districts which cover the State of Victoria and parts of Southern New South Wales.

The committee members were Leo Tyquin (Chairman), Jeff Lawrence and David Blyth.

There was a strong consensus that it would be in the best interest of Lionism to have one foundation to embrace existing ones and any future major fund-raising and other activitity involving all six Districts.

Investigations indicated that the existing Victoria Lions Charitable Foundations with minimal formal constitutional amendments could be used as the umbrella. The only member of the existing foundation at that time was Lions Village Nicola. However, the objects enabled other suitably qualified foundations, or fund raising activities, to operate the same constitution.

It was proposed to present the required constitutional amendments to the annual general meeting of the Victoria Lions Charitable Foundation in June 1984. It was proposed that those ammendments if approved would be submitted to the 1984 V1, V2, V3, V4, V5 and V6 District Conventions for approval.

The Committee welcomed input from any interested Lions. Final submissions were to be received up to March 1984
