And the trophy goes to . . . surprised Lion
The Lions Club of Tokoroa City held their annual changeover of officers on July 3 at the Tokoroa Club.
Allan Wilson of Host Lions handled the induction while entertaining the gathering with his quick wit.
Jon Welch is the new president, replacing Bob Ennion.
A much surprised Doug Blair was awarded Lion of the Year for his constant efforts on behalf of City Lions.
South Waikato Mayor Neil Sinclair was the keynote speaker.
He detailed the many growth opportunities blossoming in the district.
He then revealed that Tokoroa would be one of only seven areas to test a new youth programme designed to keep at-risk children aged 12 to 17 in school.
Mr Blair concluded the event, assuming the role of Tail Twister, leaving all with tears of laugher and much lighter wallets.
LION MAN: Doug Blair was awarded the Lion of the Year trophy.
