A WELCOME MESSAGE FROM LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT 105SE GOVERNOR

 

LION PETE DILLOWAY

I am delighted to be attending the Lions’ Convention this year. The Lions have played an important role in the Arundel Community and many groups have benefited from their support and generosity over the years. I recall, amongst many events, the splendid Father Christmas in his sleigh at ‘Arundel by Candlelight’.

Groups, like the Lions are a real ‘backbone’ to the community that facilitate and drive fundraising as well as physical support to groups. Their approach and connection with people should be acknowledged as they continue to deliver positive projects in the County.

 

Councillor Lucy Ashworth Mayor of Arundel

My family of Lions, Lionesses, Leos and honoured guests

 

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to our 48th SE District convention here under one roof at the Avisford Park Hotel in Arundel, West Sussex. Lisa & I are delighted that in addition to those of you from within the District, we are also joined by visitors from many different areas outside of the District who have come to share our convention with us. You are all very welcome.

We have tried to put together a convention programme which is informative and enjoyable and that there will hopefully be something of interest to everyone. While there is a formal business element which has to be undertaken, we have tried to build on the positive feedback received from last years convention and provide presentations with information on service opportunities which may be of interest to you and/or your clubs.

For your entertainment we have our Friday host night social with the theme of “That’s Entertainment” which brings together the worlds of stage and screen to start the weekend with an enjoyable evening of

cabaret, dancing and fun. Following the business session on Saturday will be the District Governors Banquet & Ball with entertainment provided by “The Flat Pack”.

I would like to thank John Cattaway and the convention team including the Host committee led by Colin Rickman, consisting of representatives of the clubs in zones 1B & 1C for the time, effort and work they have put in to make this convention a success and an enjoyable experience for everyone. I very much appreciate all that they have done.

Thanks for attending and I hope that you have an enjoyable convention.

 

District Governor Lion Pete Dilloway
