And we’re back from the 39E convention in Idaho Falls!
What a weekend! VDG Betty, Envision president Lois, and I were chauffeured to Idaho Falls by Council Chair Jim. You can just imagine being in that car full of Lions who are excited about being Lions and all that means. Not a moment of silence!
The folks in 39E were super nice and welcoming and it was fun to attend a convention where all you had to do was show up. They did give me impromptu time to tell what we are doing over here in the west and tell them about our convention, which several of them will attend.
We had some time to chat with International Director Allen Hunt from Canada. He had an understated and dry sense of humor, something that didn’t come across so well on Zoom last year at Sun Valley.
What else? They had a band and a dance Friday night, a business meeting Saturday morning, a panel discussion in the afternoon, a couple of service projects, and a banquet. Saturday was packed!
District 39E is half the size of District 39W. They had about 70 registered for the convention. I know we can beat that number! So get your registrations in now for February 18-19. It’s right around the corner so don’t be left out! I’m looking forward to seeing you
