The Warwick Lions Club recently celebrated their changeover with a new president and board.
Outgoing president Con Lo Giudice said he’d been excited to be at the helm of the club for the past three years and had served the club proudly for the last 15.
“On Sunday 25 June 2017 we had the annual changeover held at the Warwick Seniors Citizen Hall during a lunch ceremony, 50 people attended, including guests mayor Tracy Dobie – who she proposed a toast to Lions International – and her husband Colin, LNP candidate for Southern Downs James Lister and District 201Q1 Past District Governor Lion Merv Ferguson and his wife Lion Betty Ferguson, who conducted the installation of the new Warwick Lions 2017-2018 president John Griffith and the new board,” Con said.
In his president’s report Con explained the good work the Lions Club has done in raising in a sum of $26,764 in the past year, including donations of goods for Disability Week, the Lions River Walk, Buddy up Gold Day and Lighthouse Warwick.
Lion Jenny Rainbird was the Club Lion of the Year. Former Lions Lady, Bernice William, received the President Choice Award for continuing support for the Lions club, Lions Heather Schilling the J.D. Richardson award for Lions Humanitarian work and Lion Jeff Ferguson got the Melvin Jones Progressive award. The Warwick Lions Citizen went to Leonard Monaghan – this gentleman is known for volunteering cleaning the side of our highways from debris.
President Con said: “I’d like to thank incoming president John Griffith for being my secretary for the last two terms of my presidency”.
