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.
