Meet and Greet

On the 31st October 2018, Lions Club of Tropical Gardens and other service clubs and entities with health programmes were invited to coffee and treats at the Government House. Mrs. Elisabeth Roper, the Governor's wife, was a most welcoming hostess and expressed a genuine interest in the work of the groups. Lions Patricia Bazell-Taylor PMJF and Kareefa Mohammed-Jalim represented the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens at this event and remarked at how refreshing and encouraging it was, especially as it took place just three days after Mrs Roper’s arrival in the Cayman Islands. Lion Kareefa commented: “I was excited that she showed such an interest in our Club and seemed very interested in the ser

Breast Cancer Survivors’ Breakfast.

On October 27th, 2018 the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens hosted a survivors’ breakfast at Governor’s Ballroom, Kimpton Seafire Resort in Grand Cayman. Lion Liz Smith, decked in a stunning outfit , was fully charged and filled the room with her own special brand of electric energy. There were smiles all around as Lion Liz, herself a breast cancer survivor, danced, pranced and swung her “tail” to Katy Perry’s ROAR. The Lions roared and the crowd wanted more!!! Each survivor in the room, at this much anticipated event, had their own unique story to tell. The room was a sea of beautiful pink, with attendees being treated to a morning of celebration, empowerment and fun. Important messages includ

Raising Funds

In order to have the desired impact through our important projects, we must also partner with our faithful community in order to raise well-needed funds. We are grateful for current supporters but are also looking to welcome others on board so that we can have more of an impact and keep existing projects viable. If you would like to become a sponsor or get involved, please do not hesitate to contact any member of our Club. Our fundraising for breast cancer activities is not confined to the month of October…we welcome support year-round so that we can in turn offer support to those who need it most. Giving, contributing, volunteering….these all help you connect with the community and help the

World Food Day

On the 16th October, 2018 World Food Day was commemorated: fighting against global hunger, but recognising how far we still have to go. Food is a basic daily necessity and no one should go hungry. By way of example, did you know that each of us consumes over 15,000 gallons of water during our lifetime and that our water is increasingly contaminated with plastics, heavy metals and even bacteria? We all can do our part and contribute to ending hungry. Take care of mother earth and mother earth will provide for every man, woman and child. A few steps can make a big difference in a someone life. A truly balanced diet helps you to feel your best inside and out and brings health and wisdom to your

Breast Cancer 5k/10k Walk/Run

Kaibo/North Side: The Kaibo/North Side staging of the Brenda Tibbets-Lund Breast Cancer 5K Walk/Run took place on the 6th October, 2018. Oh! what a morning to remember. As the walkers and runners got into place, the heavens opened with raindrops showering blessings on those assembled to support the event. The sunrise then played peek-a-boo with the grey clouds on the horizon cooling the morning off nicely for the participants who braved the raindrops and puddles. West Bay/Public Beach: The West Bay/Public Beach staging of the Brenda Tibbetts-Lund 5K/10K Walk/Run followed on the 14th October, 2018 with hundreds coming out to supports. There were adults, children, babies in prams and even dogs

Pink Shop

At this time of year (especially in the Lions calendar), everything is decked out in pink and everyone is talking about breast cancer awareness and support. The Lions Club of Tropical Gardens also focusses on its fundraising activities which are so necessary to keep our meaningful service projects alive. We are very grateful to the members of the public who faithfully support us in these efforts. The Lions Pink Shop is central to many of these activities and is a buzz of activity during the month. It facilitates the selling of Pink/Breast Cancer Awareness items and registration for the annual walk/runs staged by the Club. The money raised goes 100% to our service projects, which include payi

World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day, was celebrated on 10th October, 2018. We are our brother’s/sister’s keeper. Just three words: “How are you?” Mental health is still stigmatized and those struggling can feel isolated and alone. Just as physical health requires proper nutrition, exercise, movement and maintenance on a daily basis, our mental and emotional health too requires adequate nurturing, attention, and support. We place so much emphasis on our physical health and fitness, our external beauty, and the ways we are perceived. Beauty emerges from the depths of a person’s attitude, positive mind-set, rich and supportive lifestyle, and healthy perspective. Let’s work on those “inner depths” and “buil

Breast Cancer Awareness Meetings and Clinics

Imagine being told that you have cancer: coming to terms with this news can be overwhelming, confusing and scary. There is still a lot to learn and making sure that a person with cancer is able to access the right support and accurate, user-friendly information is important. Recognising the importance of empowering the community with accurate information and support, the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens stages district awareness meetings and clinics throughout the month of October. At each awareness meeting Doctors and other medical personnel are able to educate the community with cutting-edge information.
