Bantry Bay Lions Club meets at 1900hrs on the 2nd Thursday of the month at Bantry Tourist Office.
Our District Governor Teresa Dineen was able to present two members of the Club, John Dervan and Marion Rouse with their 10 Year service Awards. The photo below shows from left to right, President Francis with Teresa, Marion and John.
I am planning to visit this Festival in August next year, and make contact with he Lions in Malta.
Peter Marren went last year, and had such a good time, he is going again this year. Susy & I are going to join in. Please contact Peter for more information.
It would be really good fun to have a few members of the Club travel as well.
Here is some information from Peter about this:-
The Lions are running a Paint Ball Arcade for the National school in Bantry on Sunday 26th November.
There is a rota here for those willing to help. No marquee needed, so easy to set up and take down.
Lions - Take Action Now!
There would have been a Street Collection on Saturday 21st October to raise money for the Lions International Disaster Relief Fund.
However Storm Brian put paid to that. We are trying to arrange another date.
Please add you name to the Rota here
On 16th September we attended the Fun day in Glengarriff providing a Paint Ball Arcade as per last year.
The rain held off until mid afternoon, so there were plenty of people to come and try their luck.
As last year the event was dominated by Saoirsa McCarthy, joined by her sister who was as good a shot as her.
We collected nearly €250 Euro for Glangarriff Community.
We have reintroduced the Tail Twister back into the Club, but with a 'twist'. We have two of them, so watch out for some fun! Debbie Harvey & Meg Wilson have taken up the challenge. Here is what they propose to do.
This event on 4th July at 1830 was to enjoy both events.
Nora's team did a wonderful job to prepare a huge spread which was enjoyed by a good many Lions and friends.
This is a reminder that, effective July 1, 2017, we are consolidating new club charter fees and new member fees into a single $35 entrance fee. This fee consolidation and increase will allow us to increase member benefits, improve the member experience, and simplify the new member and club enrollment processes.
The founding of Lions Clubs International, one hundred years ago, is celebrated on An Post’s new international postage stamp.
This event took place at the Clayton Hotel, Lapps Quay, Cork on Saturday 15th July 2017. There was be a pre-dinner reception and four course dinner including wine and dancing. The City Hall lit up in Lions Colours to complement the celebrations.
