LIONS president Jeff Smith, council chairman Denis Meyer, past district governor Martin Rundle, past club president Alastair Warman, Lion Alister and Lion Lady Irene Love represented the Port Shepstone Lions Club at the annual District 410-C Mid-Year Conference held at Sierra Family Adventure Resort in Mooi River last weekend.

The conference was attended by Lions­ representing 22 Lions Clubs in KZN and the Free State.

At the conference awards were presented by the immediate past district governor to various clubs in recognition of outstanding service and achievements during the 2015/2016 fiscal year.

Port Shepstone Lions received a total of nine district awards, which included the Pierre Theron Service Project of the Year (for the club’s annual Lions Leadership Retreat), Overall Public Relations award, Ian Murray Project Public Relations award, Club Bulletin award, Hillary Moolman Diabetes Awareness Award, Geoff Chettle Club Secretary Award for the best administered club in the district and a Louis Halse award for being a 100% contributing club.

In addition to these, the club was also one of only two clubs in the district to receive a Lions Legacy Project award and a 4 Diamond Lions Centennial Service Challenge Award from Lions­ Clubs International in recognition of meeting the four challenges, namely, engaging our youth, protecting our environment, sharing the vision­ and relieving the hunger.

These awards were accepted by club president Smith.

The conference was officially opened by Meyer and included presentations by various Lions clubs and district project chairman, sharing of service ideas and fellowship among the clubs.

Smith shared a presentation on how to organise and run a leadership retreat.

Proceedings ended with a “Mad Hatters”-themed party.

Lions Clubs International celebrates 100 years of service in 2017 and to commemorate this achievement, a Centenary Challenge programme was launched to provide community services to 100 million underprivileged people worldwide.

Lions Clubs worldwide have already surpassed this challenge and have reached over 112 million.
