Message from Lions International - Increase in Membership Entrance Fee

Submitted by francis on Wed, 14/06/2017 - 12:36

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.

Well we had a great if somewhat wet day for the Parade. Seven Lions marched round the town, enjoying the flags and cheers of the many who braved the elements.

Well Done Bantry!!!
