Prior Conventions

District and International Conventions help to:

  • Create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world.
  • Unite the clubs in the bonds of friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding.

These are two of the purposes of Lions which are achieved at the various conventions held on a local, national and international level.

Here are some photos from past conventions our club has attended:
