Notes from the 40th District A-4 Lions Convention

A very entertaining and informative District A-4 convention was held on April 11 through 13 at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata.  Lions Peggy Feltmate, Liz Christie, Pearl Brule, Avis Templeton, Todd Sloan and Tom Feltmate represented the Kanata-Hazeldean Lions Club at the Convention.

The theme of the 40th District A-4 Convention was "Knights of the Blind" .  Lion Liz Christie was one of 10 Lions selected for best costume demonstrating the value of imagination and lots of duct tape!!

The Opening Ceremonies featured a speech by Lion Penny LeClair, a blind Lion from the Gloucester Lions Club, who re-enacted the speech given by Helen Keller at the 1925 International Convention of Lions Clubs.  Lion Penny clearly demonstrated why we as Lions so clearly focus on eradicating preventable blindness and providing services to the visually impaired.  Following the opening ceremonies, there were a number of excellent information sessions on Orientation, Conflict Resolution, Tail Twisting, Becoming a Zone Chair, and Lions On-Line (presented by Lion Liz Christie).

The Saturday Luncheon featured inspiring presentations by Leos from our District highlighting their accomplishments as Leos, describing the benefits they realized from their membership in their Leo Club,  and encouraging Clubs in the District to consider promoting the Leo program in their area.  Region meetings followed the Luncheon during which we were able exchange information regarding activities undertaken by the various Clubs in our Region.

The Sunday agenda featured the Memorial Service for deceased Lions, Lioness and Lionettes.  This was followed by the District A-4 Cabinet Meeting at which time the results of Convention voting was announced.  There will be a $2 per Lion increase in District A-4 dues to assist our District to maintain a balanced budget.  It should be noted that this increase in dues was accompanied by a reduction in budgeted expenditures of approximately 25% – from $24K down to $18K.

Members of the 2014-2015 District A-4 Cabinet following their introduction at the 40th Convention of District A-4 held April 11 - 13.
