Angle Vale Lions handover

The Angle Vale Lions conducted an official handover of presidency on July 26 at the Gawler Arms hotel.
There were many special guests for the evening, including member for Napier, Jon Gee, and the District and Vice-District Governor of the Lions organisation.
Outgoing president Dorothy Lewtas, who was the main driving force behind the formation of the club in 2013, passed on her badge to 23 year-old Nicholas (Nick) Charles.
Nick has been a member of the Angle Vale Lions since it was chartered in 2014 and is looking to draw more young people to the club.
Formerly holding the position of secretary, Nick and Dorothy have now swapped roles.
“I’ve been president for three years now, I’m getting a little bit tired,” Dorothy said.
“Nick is young and has some fresh ideas.”
Dorothy has been involved with the Lions organisation for 17 years.
She started out at the Elizabeth Lions, also being a president there from 2003 to 2004, then moved to the Paralowie branch where she held the role of secretary, and then eventually formed the Angle Vale Lions after moving to the area.
“A lot of people said it wouldn’t happen,” she said of the forming of the Angle Vale Lions group.
However, since being chartered they have raised significant funds for the local community.
In the last financial year alone they were able to raise over $20,000 and all of this will be used to provide for certain local projects and groups.
Angle Vale Lions recently had the great pleasure in donating three brand new balance bikes to the Angle Vale Pre-School, relishing the smiling faces of the young children.
