THE attendance of 80 enthusiastic members from 66 Lions Club branches between Yamba and Port Macquarie ensured the District 201N1 shadow cabinet meeting held in Maclean at the weekend was declared a roaring success.

District governor-elect Deyann McDonnell from the Maclean Lions Club introduced her new cabinet for the year and announced her future plans.

Ms McDonnell said she aimed to enhance district leadership and training, improve clubs success and increase Lions Club membership throughout the district.

Ms McDonnell joined the Lions Club 12 years ago to become more involved with her local community and help disadvantaged people.

She said the meeting was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with members from other Lions Club branches over the weekend.

Maclean Lions Club president Alan Cunningham said the shadow cabinet meeting was a great social event for all members.

"It was a very informative meeting. I was able to catch up with my friends from the Tamworth and Armidale branches," he said.

Ms McDonnell announced the next cabinet meeting would be held in Old Bar in July.
