Mr Campbell took over from Doug Tuhan, who presided over the club for the past year, and said he was looking forward to the challenge ahead.
A large crowd of Lions, their partners and special guests attended the changeover dinner.
Mr Tuhan reported on a busy 2013-14 for the club, thanking Bill Milner for taking on the role of secretary.
‘‘Sadly ill health forced him to relinquish the role and that was when Glenda McLeod stepped into the position,’’ Mr Tuhan said.
‘‘Glenda was a great help to me throughout the year, and I thank her for a job well done.
‘‘Every member of the club had input in one way or another during the year.’’
Mr Tuhan also thanked Mike and Sharon Shalley for revamping Carols by Candlelight and John Mapson for his excellent job as treasurer.
‘‘The presentation of the Melvyn Jones Fellowship to Tatura Bega Milk was a great club decision — we all know how much this company puts back into the Tatura community,’’ he said.
‘‘I thank the Lions Ladies who, whenever asked, didn’t hesitate to help us through the year.’’
Mr Tuhan said probably the club’s biggest project for many years was the complete overhaul of Tatura Occasional Care play area.
‘‘It was hard work for members, but I think all would agree it has been one of the most rewarding projects to have been involved with.
‘‘Thanks to Malcolm for all the extra painting,’’ he said.
Mr Tuhan thanked Lions for the support given to him over the past year, and wished Mr Campbell and the new board a great year ahead.
The 2014-15 board is: president Malcolm Campbell, secretary Glenda McLeod, treasurer John Mapson, immediate past-president Doug Tuhan, first vice-president Mike Shalley, second vice-president Bruce McLeod, third vice-president Tom Deane, lion tamer Mark Sommers, tail twister Noel Stokes, directors Ashley Wiles and Kim O’Toole, and membership Lyn Schramm.
The club has 31 members, and welcomed Mark Somers and John McCallum as new Lions in 2013-14, along with Jo Smith who transferred from Beechworth.
Lions Ladies president Marg Tuhan said the ladies had a year of monthly lunches at various venues in Tatura, as well as travelling to Murchison to have lunch with Gwen Muir (wife of Lion Jack Muir).
‘‘We also had two social evenings and a progressive dinner,’’ she said.
‘‘We have assisted the Lions with many catering activities throughout the year, and were happy to do so.’’
