The Lions and Leos of Zone 3B (Saint Lucia) hosted The District Governor, Sub–District 60B Lion Izett Mc Calla MJF.
The District Governor was pleased with the work being undertaken in the various communities and urged clubs to continue to be of service to community while building partnerships with commercial and other organizations. He invited Lions and Leos to continue to focus on their primary responsibility which was service to humanity but at the same time there should also be responsibility to each other. He implored Lions and Leos to show that same compassion for each other, and noted that was his reason for choosing the theme “A Passion for Compassion”.
He asked that clubs constantly review their operations so that they embrace the changes that are taking place thereby enabling their club to become better and to enhance on the membership experience. Further that clubs should find new and innovative ways of doing things. One important point highlighted was that clubs, when inviting persons to join the organization, should include family members as part of the orientation sessions. This would allow the family members to understand and appreciate the time and effort that Lions and Leos spend in Service. He noted that it was also another way of finding new members.
During his visit the District Governor paid a courtesy call on the Governor General as well as visited the Saint Lucia Blind Welfare Association, an organization that has had a long standing partnership with the Lions and Leos of Saint Lucia. The District Governor also attended the Third Zone meeting which was hosted by the Soufriere Pitons Lions Club.
The District Governor presented on behalf of the International President a number of long service awards ranging from ten years to twenty-five years. One Lion was the recipient of the President’s club excellence award for 2012-2013.
Thanks to our island's head of state Dame Pearlette Louisy for acceding to our request at such short notice and the Administrators of the Saint Lucia Blind Welfare Association. . A hearty Lions ROAR to the Lions and Leos of Zone 3B for the warm hospitality extended to the District Governor.
