Tokoroa City Lions have new president
Tokoroa City Lions Club have changed officers, with Dexter Morgan starting in the role of president on Friday.
On Sunday June 12, it was announced that Morgan who joined the lions at the age of 25, would take over as president from Jonathon Davy.
‘‘I am excited to be this year’s prospect,’’ he said.
‘‘Thank you so much for your trust in allowing me to lead you through it,’’ Morgan said.
Morgan’s goal was to increase meeting attendance and get more interactive with the youth, because the ‘‘Youth is our future’’.
Outgoing president, Davy said ‘‘I am really proud of our club as we really do serve our community in the best way that we can.’’
He said he was thankful for the support and was looking forward to what the year would bring.
Throughout the year the Tokoroa City Lions have served 2200 plus hours in the community and have welcomed seven new members to join their club.
This year’s major donations went to 21 organisations, Hospice being the biggest recipient with $6000 going towards two beds. The South Waikato District libraries received $2000 for the summer reading programme and Lions International Youth Camp received $1308.
The total donations added up to $17,126.
