Lion Marvin Grant wel­comes Lions to the Mid-Year Con­fer­ence

Jamaica Gleaner - - LIONS IN ACTION -

IAM ex­tremely de­lighted to wel­come you to the 28th MD60 Mid-Year Con­fer­ence here in beau­ti­ful Ja­maica, land of many ac­claims, in­clud­ing home to the fastest man on planet Earth. I would like to ex­tend spe­cial wel­come to our very own In­ter­na­tional Di­rec­tor Lion Ni­colin Moore, who has given up other speak­ing en­gage­ments just to be here with us. We are in­deed very ap­pre­cia­tive of this ges­ture.

This con­fer­ence af­fords us an­other op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the joys and im­por­tance of serv­ing; of be­ing a part of this no­ble or­gan­i­sa­tion that is in its cen­ten­nial year of ex­is­tence. Let’s use this oc­ca­sion to strengthen bonds of old friend­ships, make new ones and en­sure that agape is felt by all. I also en­cour­age fullest par­tic­i­pa­tion in all ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing the work­shops which are con­ve­niently sched­uled and in­volve a series of in­ter­est­ing top­ics geared to­wards the achieve­ment of club sus­tain­abil­ity.

This be­ing the mid­point of an­other year of ser­vice, it is the per­fect time for re-evaluation of our goals, plan of ac­tion, and to cel­e­brate our many ac­com­plish­ments with pride. It is my hope that at the end of this con­fer­ence we leave ful­filled, re­vi­talised and re-en­er­gised to­wards ‘climb­ing new moun­tains’ ahead and to con­tinue ‘mak­ing it right’ in our re­spec­tive com­mu­ni­ties. Please take some time to ex­plore Ja­maica in all its beauty and splen­dour. Lion Marvin Grant, Coun­cil Chair­per­son.
