Lions gather in Inverloch

LIONS Clubs from across the region gathered in Inverloch for a convention and annual general meeting last weekend.

Arriving on Friday, 250 people from 67 clubs as far as Mallacoota registered to be involved in the convention over the three big days.

To commemorate the event, 18 displays were put together to reflect the work of Lions. This year’s theme was Dinosaur Dreaming.

Some events included a Christmas cake competition, a barbecue on the opening night, and the junior public speaking competition for primary aged children.

“Students from grades 3 to 5 have competed in the junior public speaking competition and this was the grand final. These students were absolutely magnificent and extremely confident,” Inverloch Lions Club’s Klaus Edel said.

The annual general meeting was an opportunity to discuss the activities of Lions clubs and reflect on those who have departed Lions in the last 12 months.

These people were acknowledged with a photograph and speech about what they had achieved during their time with the organisation.

“As an annual general meeting and a convention all in one, it’s an excellent way for delegates to meet and for the clubs to renew friendships,” Ms Edel said.

“Every year, the convention is held in a different location. Last year it was held in Lakes Entrance and next year it will be in Stratford.”
