PDG Colin Lees receives the Ron Rowe Bulletin Award from Lion magazine editor Iain Morrison, on behalf of Toko & Districts Lions Club’s editor Colin Weir. The club’s bulletin was a stand-out winner this year, being very well designed, with all information laid out neatly and cleanly, making it very easy to read. The use of colour throughout made it very attractive.


Ron Rowe (a former Editor of The Lion, South Pacific edition) and his wife Ngaire donated a trophy in 1981 to be awarded annually to the club in Multiple District 202 which, in the opinion of the MD PR & Communications Committee, has published the most interesting and informative magazine during the year (to 30 June) prior to the annual award.

Districts are asked to judge the best printed bulletin from their respective districts and to forward that to the MD office for inclusion in the competition. The magazine selected at Multiple District level is also forwarded to the International Office for inclusion in the International competition of club magazines.
