The Lions of Athlone may not have walked away with the prestigious Club of the Year prize at the mid-year conference, but they did have an array of honours bestowed upon them at the ceremony held at the Portuguese Hall in Rugby last week.The Athlone branch is one of 47 clubs within the international Lions Club District 410A, which also includes a few clubs in Namibia. The aim of the mid-year conference is to inform members of any future opportunities and changes, and is also an opportunity for new clubs to interact with other clubs, thereby enhancing the synergy among them.

The Athlone branch of the Lions Club was established in May last year (“Local branch of Lions Club starts”, People’s Post, 16 May 2017) and is the first Lions Club to be chartered on the Cape Flats.

They were allowed to share any challenges they may have and discuss sustainable solutions.According to Lions Club Athlone president Rashid Adams, the district also awards members in different categories.

“This year the awards were presented by past district governor Geila Wills, as commendations were for her term of office (July 2017 to June 2018). The Lions Club of Athlone was nominated among five other clubs as Best Club of the Year; however, it did not win in that category.

Lion Zarina Hendricks received an award for best individual performance – an award given to members who have gone the extra mile to ensure success of a service project,” says Hendricks.

Adams himself received the President of the Year award, while the club itself also received a special award from the World Rescue Organisation for their contribution in the World Rescue Challenge which was held at the Athlone Stadium last month.
