Scrapbooking is the art of preserving and presenting memorabilia. Actually, a method of capturing history in a more visual-friendly manner.For service clubs like the Lions Club of Southern Africa, scrapbooking is fundamental. It is a showcase of its clubs’ involvement in their respective communities, through living the Lions’ motto “We Serve”. Bokkie Oberholzer from Despatch is the District Governer of Lions District 410-D, comprising 29 Lions Clubs, stretching from Zastron in the southern Free State, all the way down to Swellendam in the Western Cape.Oberholzer’s scrapbook, depicting what he and the 29 Clubs in his District have done during his term, was nominated as the best Lions District Governor scrapbook in South Africa for 2015-2016. The scrapbook was compiled by his wife, Lioness Marie Oberholzer, who through the book made it possible for her husband to relive his year as District Governor.“It was hard work. Sometimes I sat until 01:00 cutting and pasting, having all done in a chronological order. But I loved it. It is a tremendous honour being elected as District Governor,” said Marie.She also contributed to the Uitenhage Lions Club having won the best scrapbook in District 410-D numerous times.The content of Bokkie’s District Governor scrapbook is of such magnitude that Marie battled to get the thick 12 kg book together. Whilst it has screws to keep it intact it was, however, necessary for her to take it to the upholsterers to have it professionally bound.While one page through the scrapbook it tells the story (and shows pictures) of the dedication with which Bokkie served as District Governor. It tells also of the Clubs serving their communities with pride, one thing in mind, to bring along positive change.Bokkie and Marie flew to Durban, where the four District Governors’ scrapbooks were judged. One of the judges apparently told Marie, “I can see the passion in this scrapbook. It is outstanding, I can live Lions by paging through it.” Marie said, “To hear that, made it worth all the effort. It was a nice journey, we really enjoyed it. Now it is for paging through the book, remembering all the stories, wonderful people and unforgettable experiences we were able to enjoy as proud Lions.” There are 4 Lions Districts in South Africa, District 420-A (Western Cape), District 410-B (Gauteng & Mpumalanga), District 410-C (Kwa-Zulu-Natal & Free State) and District 410-D (Eastern, Southern & parts of Western Cape). Bokkie Oberholzer made history being the first-ever member of the Uitenhage Lions Club being elected as a District Governor.
