DISTRICT GOVERNOR ELECT
KEVIN MASTERS

Our district convention is an opportunity for us all to gather together to celebrate our achievements, reflect on our past and look forward to the future. Come along and learn about different projects across the district, gain new ideas, meet up with old friends and make new ones.

The convention committee has worked tirelessly to put together an interesting program held at great venues on the beautiful Copper Coast.

I extend this invitation not only to Lions, but also to your family and friends, to showcase our wonderful district and organisation.
