Ronald Christopher, who has been an active member of the Club for the past nine years, was installed as Club President. Dionne John was elected to serve as the new Club Secretary, while Michael John will serve as First Vice President/Treasurer.

Club President Ronald, in his acceptance speech, spoke of the need for the club to raise its level of service, so that it will be better able to respond to the needs of our society. He highlighted that the club will be focusing its attention on young people, on reading and literacy, as this is also one of the major focuses of International Lion President Wayne Madden, among others.

He indicated that he is looking forward to leading various projects and continuing the Lions Club South’s commitment to serving the community.

Since the club received its charter in 1978, its members have worked on a variety of projects in the local community, such as the rebuilding of homes, scholarships for children attending secondary schools, assisting persons in travelling abroad for medical attention, etc, with the most recent being sixteen-year-old wheelchair bound Chequana Gilkes, a first year science student at the St Vincent and the Grenadines Community College. The club is currently preparing for its annual club retreat and National Public Speaking Competition for Secondary Schools.

The Lions Club South has twenty-two members and meets on the second Tuesday and fourth Saturday of the month at 5:00 p.m. at the Lions Den, Enhams. Lions Clubs are groups of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization, with more than 1.3 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world. Since 1917, Lions Clubs have aided the blind and visually impaired and made a strong commitment to community service and serving youth throughout the world.
