41st Westbury Lions Club Charter – 7th June 2014

41st Westbury Lions Club Charter – 7th June 2014

Lion President Anita Drago and husband Lion John Drago welcomed District Governor David Merchant and his wife Lion Diana Merchant to our 41st Charter Anniversary Dinner at the Standerwick Centre.

Joining them at our top table this year were Mayor of Westbury Christine Mitchell and Susan Hill Bird from Westbury Rotary Club.  Malcolm Westgate of Frome Rotary Club accompanied Jill Brunning from Garston Veterinary Group, our main sponsors this year who are supporting our Donkey Derby and 10k Run.

As ever our charter night was well attended by our fellow lions from around the district, with the usual suspects from Trowbridge, Bradford on Avon, Frome, GMS, Warminster and Newbury keeping the dancefloor and bar crowded.  🙂

After a wonderful 3 course meal speeches were delivered and awards given, noteable recipients being Lion Gabor Szabo receiving the Presidents Cup, and Lion David Firth receiving a service award from District Governor David.

Entertainment in the form of song and dance (and one almighty conga line!) this year was provided by Simon Rees – http://www.simonreesrocks.com/ – who kept the dancefloor crowded throughout the night.

Thank you to everyone who attended for making it such a wonderful evening!
