Wednesday 27th June saw a great BBQ at Francis & Susy's Home for the President's Handover and surprise presentation of a Melvin Jones Fellowship to Jerry Desmond.


Members listening to President Francis announce the presentation


Teresa Dineen the outgoing District Governor was able to come along with her husband and Grandchildren so she could do the presentation.


I suspect that this is one of the few occasions anyone has seen Jerry speechless, EVER! He was naturally delighted to be given this award, and in my opinion not before time.



Jerry's wife Veron looks on.

We enjoyed wonderful live music from Simon, Nisa & Jesse,


and Archery with thanks to Fiona Clarke, seen as an insert in the photo below.


My thanks go to Susy & Val for the Main Course & Salads, Roger & Tom for the BBQ Cooking despite the heat!, Nora for the deserts. Also thanks to those of you who turned up to have some fun.

Jerry has a collection of photos in an Album here. The remaining Photos are thanks to Susy.

Francis handed over the Presidency to Nora Lynch with due ceremony and respect.


And finally a photo of the Lions attending the BBQ
