Attended by most of the Lions Clubs within the district, DG Ian took great pleasure in introducing club members to the VIP panel consisting of Gudrun Yngvadittir (Past International President) from Iceland, Howard Lee (Past International Director) and Roswitha Hahn (District Governor 111NM – Deutschland Lions).
International guest, Lion Gudrun was pleased to take a vast range of questions from the floor including a question by our club president Lion Rags Sandhu, he raised the point out the International website needs to be made simple to use and perhaps have a direct link to the local clubs website, he feels this will make contacting ‘your local club’ much easier.
Dartford Club was pleased to be represented at the convention by Lion Rags Sandhu (President), Lion Graham Illsley (Treasurer) and Lion Avtar Sandhu MBE (First Vice President). The new District Governor, Lion Rizvi Rawoof, First Vice District Governor Lion Paul Dedman and Second Vice District Governor Lion Steve Carley were all elected and shall be taking their new posts from July 2022.
The final event of the ’50 plus one’ convention was a Ball hosted at the hotel on Saturday night, again another great night with live music.
In addition to the District Convention, there is also a Multi District Convention (this year in Birmingham) which is followed by the International Convention (this year in Montreal), all of which are a wealth of knowledge to those who attend.
