DELEGATES from the Port Shepstone Lions Club attended the 52nd Lions Multiple District 410 (Southern Africa) “Dolphin Coast” Convention, which was held in Ballito from between 3 and 8 May.

The Convention was hosted by the Ballito Lions Club at La Montagne Resort and Braeside Functions venue and 21 Lions attended.

During the convention, Port Shepstone Lion Denis Meyer was officially inducted as chairman of the council of governors­ for the 2016/2017 fiscal year by outgoing council chairman Rob Fowler of the Centurion Lifestyle Lions Club.

During his acceptance speech Meyer introduced the incoming district governors for each of the four Lions districts, encouraged teamwork at all levels within the association and promoted leadership development among members. He also paid tribute to the team he has had the privilege of being a part of, the Port Shepstone Lions Club.

The three-day convention was attended by 330 delegates from 68 Lions clubs across South Africa, Namibia and Swaziland.

Guest of honour, Nepalese Lion and International Director Sanjay Khetan, paid tribute to the dedication and services provided by Lions members throughout southern Africa. He also thanked clubs for their generous contributions towards the recent Nepal earthquake disaster.

Port Shepstone Lions will be attending the 2017 “Celebration” Convention in Sea Point Cape Town in April 2017 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Lionism worldwide and the 60th anniversary of Lionism in southern Africa. This multiple-district convention will be presided over by their council chairman Denis Meyer­.
