The annual District 13K convention was held in Lancaster February 28 thru March 2  in Lancaster. Lions from around the district enjoyed a great weekend which included great hospitality & fellowship, three banquets, elections, lots of Forester Green Plaid, tatoos and some inspirational words from Past International Director Jerimiah Myers.  

The main event of the business session on Saturday was the election of district officers.  Congratulations to Governor-elect Dick Sweeney, 1st Vice Gov-elect Dan O’Connor & 2nd Vice Gov-elect Sue Diehm.  Also on Saturday, the delegates overwhelmingly passed the measure to place the State Lions Redistricting Plan on the State Convention ballot.

On Sunday, the Lions held a necrology service to honor the 21 Lions from our district who passed away this year.  Sunday also saw the traditional Grand Banquet which was a big success.  Congratulations to Governor Bill Schultz on a great convention.
