2015 Presidential Induction Evening

The club celebrated the induction of Lion President Vicki van Wyk as the club’s 49th president at a formal dinner held at the club’s clubhouse on 11 July 2015.  The club was also delighted to induct and welcome Elaine Turton and Avril Hobbs as new members at the same evening. 26 guests from other Lions clubs and friends of the club joined the members for a lovely and special evening.

In keeping with new Lions International President Dr Jitsuhiro Yamada’s theme for the year, the table decor included more than 60 colourful folded paper cranes.

Outgoing Lion President Trevor Hobbs spoke on the excellent year of service the club had completed and presented several awards, including awarding Lion Phil Meyer as the 2014/2015 Lion of the Year.

6 members of the East Coast Lions club were present on the evening and they presented the club with a much needed replacement microwave.

LP Vicki opened her year of leadership by introducing her theme and plans for the year, built around being “keys of service”.
