Every year in June the Pemberton Lions Club holds our annual year-end BBQ and installation ceremony. This is a great event, as we welcome new members, and install members for roles for the next year. We held the event this past Saturday (June 17) at at our past presidents’ home and had a wonderful potluck with many delicious dishes. We were also welcomed by our district governor, Simon Yau. He graciously inducted our new members, and granted new roles to old members. It was extra special as our little club grew by FOUR new members. We feel very proud to have such a supportive community!
From left to right, we welcome Shawn, Anne, Sandra and Paul. This year, the organization celebrates 100 years of support and service to their communities! Moreover, we even surpassed our all- time record for membership at 1,445,591 members around the world. It really is a great time to become a Lion!
We are also excited to announce the new roles of our existing members. The nominations and votes are closed and we are very happy with our club arrangement for the 2017/2018 season. Each person will have specific duties to and within the club. Please see our ‘About‘ page for more information.
