Pride of Lions pleased with convention

THE 2012 Lions Club Convention has been declared the best ever held by Grafton Lions Club member Sandra Grogan.

Between October 12-14, 220 guests from 73 Lions clubs travelled to the Clarence Valley to attend the annual convention.

It was a time to learn about other Lions clubs' achievements, discuss how Lions clubs can deliver more to their local communities and how to encourage youths to join. But above all, it was a time to establish new friendships and have fun with fellow members.

"It was fantastic. The whole weekend went without a hitch and everyone who came to the convention had a great time in Grafton."

During the convention, Lions club members enjoyed a vintage car ride through the streets of Grafton and a visit to Langbrook Gunyah Museum and Olive Farm.

Ms Grogan said forums at the convention to raise funds and awareness of prostate cancer, autism spectrum disorder and new ways to encourage youths to join Lions clubs were well attended.

She said Alan Cunningham from Maclean was also voted to become the NSW Lions Club district governor for 2013.

The 2013 Lions Club Convention will be held in Armidale.
