MEMBERS of the Port Shepstone Lions’ Club attended the annual District 410-C Mid-year Conference at the Royal­ Hotel in Ladysmith last weekend.

Among them were club president Jeff Smith, council chairman elect Denis Meyer, immediate past district governor Martin Rundle and immediate past club president Alastair Warman.

Several Lions, representing various Lions Clubs in KwaZulu-Natal and the Free State, also attended. During the conference awards were presented by the immediate past district governor to clubs in recognition of outstanding service and achievements during the 2014/2015 fiscal year.

Port Shepstone Lions received seven awards which included Lions Club of the Year, Overall Public Relations award, Ian Murray Project Public Relations award, Club Bulletin award, Paddy McMenemy Hearing project award, Roy Hardman award for projects for the disabled and a Louis Halse award for being a 100% contributing club. These awards were accepted by Warman as they were achieved during his term as club president.

The conference was officially opened by Meyer and included a day of report-backs by district project chairmen, sharing of service ideas and fellowship among the clubs.

Lions Clubs International celebrates 100 years of service in 2017 and to commemorate this achievement, a centenary challenge programme has been launched which aims to provide community service to 100 million underprivileged people, worldwide.

District 410-C delegates discussed ideas on how to launch a centenary project that would include all clubs in the district. - Supplied.
