Cameron Lions and Taylor Lions clubs hosted this year's Mid-Winter Conference. We had a record 155 in attendance. The District Leo Clubs collected socks for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Good reports were told by zone chairmen and District leadership. Past Council Chair Lion John Landrum told us about some new programs coming in the very near future. Lion Gayle Collins was appointed as the 2nd Vice District Governor to fill a vacancy left in that position. Many awards were given, reminding us of what a great Lions District we have! We appreciate all who attended, and continue to support our leadership.
