DG PEGGY WALLS’ MESSAGE
CELEBRATION TIME is fast approaching. The District Convention is being
planned for you as a time to come together with fellow Lions to learn, to
meet, to share, and to celebrate.
Friday night we are planning a 100 year birthday party. You must be registered to attend, but there will be no cost for the food. There will be games, some surprises, some awards, and, of course, the long awaited fashion show.
Saturday will be filled with sessions and voting and evening banquet.
Currently, we have twelve clubs that qualify to participate in the beauty
contest. There are more clubs that have not yet entered their new
members who can qualify. Remember a club must be one plus member. One of the presidents of the clubs that qualify will win a pin-filled vest. The first "official" pin from Michigan is on the vest. Our guest for the week-end will be PID Rod Wright from New Brunswick, Canada.
The convention will be held at the H Hotel in Midland. Meeting rooms
are accessible and on one level. Elevators are roomy and efficient. This
is a beautiful hotel that has hosted other district's conventions. Midland
is home of the "tridge", Dow Gardens, Chippewa Nature Center, Center
for the Arts, Alden B. Dow Home and Studio, and the Great Lake
Loons. Lots to do and see.
At this point we have two announced candidates for 2nd Vice District
Governor. They are in alphabetical order: Bill Bradfield from the Cadillac
Club and Bill Koch from the White Cloud Club. Invite them to your clubs
to become informed voters.
Early registration is encouraged for planning. Looking forward to
"Celebrating the Joy" of service with you.
