Convention update December 2021 by DG Christine Stewart
The convention committee has worked very hard to try and keep the registration costs as low as possible.  This convention we are offering an option for members to come only to the Saturday night dine & dance.   If you want to come to the full weekend, (or attend perhaps the business session only), you will fill in Section A on the registration form – with a registration fee of $35 for Lions, and $20 for non lion partners. If you would only like to come and join with us on the Saturday evening for the Dine & Dance, Please fill out Section B on the registration form – there will be no registration fee for this option, but the evening cost is $60 per person. If you do choose this option, you will only be allowed to attend the Saturday night function – no other weekend events.
Cake Theme
The theme for the cake decoration will be “Showtime”.  This could mean a circus show, theatre show, movies, Oscar night, Dance Show, Great Gatsby, the options are endless. The cakes will be auctioned on Saturday night with the proceeds going to Camp Quality South. There will be two trophies up for grabs. One for the best cake decoration (to be judged), and one for the cake that fetches the highest price at auction.
