15 – 18 May, 2020
Dear Lions & Conventioneers,
Due to the current situation with the covid-19 virus, and the related restrictions being implemented by state and federal governments, the Lions 201 MD Convention 2020 which was to be held in May is officially cancelled.
The convention committee has worked tirelessly over the last few years to organise the convention. But in light of the current situation we face, our priority must be the health and well being of our Lions family.
I want to personally thank the committee for all their time and effort; they have gone above and beyond. They are an amazing group of people and I have enjoyed working with them on this event.
Tony Pederick OAM
As Council Chairperson for MD 201, 2019-20, let me be the first to welcome and encourage you all to attend the up and coming exciting Multiple District Convention being held in Adelaide, 15th – 18th May 2020.
The Convention committee are all hard at work and will be placing updates on the website as events are finalised, so watch this space.
Hope to see you all soon for some business, learning and a whole lot of fun & fellowship.
