    1 July 2021

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 Lions Year.

    Congratulations to Kevin Thornton on his year as District Governor. Kevin has met the challenges of the past year with Covid-19 restricting many activities, having a "virtual" convention as well as the Special District Convention in February 2021. Then much of the District was affected by floods. Kevin has lived up to his theme of "NEVER GIVE UP – ENCOURAGE OTHERS – DO YOUR BEST / Service - Friendship - Community".

    We welcome Robin Parker as the District Governor for the 2021-2022 year and wish her a successful year. Robin's theme is "Vibrant Splashes - Vigorous Growth".

    The District website has been updated for the 2021-2022 Lions Year. Please visit regularly for updates throughout the year.
