Lion President Phil 'hands over'
Lion President Phil Daniels handed over the Presidency of the Club on July 5th to Lion John Perkins. During the evening Lions and families enjoyed an evening meal at Marple Conservative Club. Lion Phil thanked all members for their support on what has been another successful year of for the Club.
Lion Phl's last Presidential role was to present Lion Pat Brady with a Melvyn Jones Fellowship - the highest award that a Lion can receive. Lion Phil had arranged a video message from Pat's friend and Lion colleague, Yoki, from Hong Kong. Lion Pat has been a tireless worker for Lions and a great supporter of our Santa Dash which is organised by Lion Terry Harding. Lion Pat has also worked very hard to raise the profile of Lions in the Romiley area. Lion Pat was delighted and completely taken aback with the award which now takes pride of place in his house!
Everyone present wished Lion President John and 'first lady' Jane best wishes for the forthcoming Lions year.
