The 45th Annual 27 A-1 District Lions convention held January 6 and 7, 2023 at the Ingleside Hotel is complete. The convention theme “Happiness is Lions Pride” and “Teamwork Makes Lions Work” was on full display as Lions and LEOs gathered to celebrate our service and learn how we can work together to improve our communities.
District Governor David and Lynn introduced us to our guests for the weekend, International Director Jeffrey R. Gans and Ellyn, his wife, who traveled from Voorhees, New Jersey and spent the weekend getting to know our Lions and LEOs, celebrating our service and inspiring us to serve in new ways. Lions and LEOs heard from a wide variety of speakers, including Cupcakes by Jordan, our WI Lions Foundation, the Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin, and Leader Dogs for the Blind to the Wisconsin Gaming Commission who gave us tons of information to keep our raffles and Bingo in line with the rules. Saturday’s Parade of Checks and Convention Service Project amplified International President Brian Sheehan’s theme this year, “Together We Can”.
It was a great weekend of hospitality and service learning. We hope you enjoyed your convention, whether it was your first or one of many. We look forward to seeing you next year!
