Lions convention a roaring success

MORE than 100 Lions members converged on the Tasmanian Police Academy at Rokeby recently to discuss and plan projects and activities for the coming year.

Co-hosted by the Clarence and Sorell Lions clubs, the convention was officially opened by police commissioner Darren Hines, who praised the Lions for their dedication and commitment to community service.

The weekend was not all business, however, with a special gala dinner organised and catered by the staff at the Police Academy.

District governor Annette Ogilvy, who chaired the convention, praised the Clarence and Sorell Lions for delivering an excellent convention.
