The morning of the 49th Annual Convention of District 105D started with over 150 Lions gathering for the formal opening ceremony. The District Governor David Merchant introduced the Distinguished Guests, Past International President Jim Ervin a member of Albany Lions Club, Georgia, USA and Past International Director Phil Nathan of South Woodham Ferrers Lions Club in Essex.

District Governor - Lion David Merchant

Wow! What an incredible Convention weekend.

Our International Guest, Past International President Jim Ervin, along with his wife Sharon, arrived at the Holiday Inn around 2:30pm on Friday in the company of Past International Director Phil Nathan and Lion Heidi-Ann Nathan. After introductions and a chance for our visitors to freshen up and settle into their rooms it was time for a Cabinet Meeting, whilst the partners enjoyed tea with Lion Diana. Friday evening was a wonderful evening of entertainment, led by the superb Lisa Faye, whose singing was appreciated by everyone. She completed a cabaret slot with songs from popular musicals and then sang more songs for dancing to and the dance floor was still full when the evening came to it's resounding conclusion.

The Business Sessions were very well attended, as were the Workshops, and it was also the inspirational presentations which added to the weight of the day. These were from Past President Jim, Past International Director Phil, Young Ambassador Winner Jenny Russ and Mr Brian Higgins from Missing People. The usual Business was conducted with enthusiasm and interest and the new District Governor Team of Mike Hendy, Alan Chapman and David Taylor were duly elected into office. I had made some changes and amendments including the placing of roses into vases as the names of those Lions who have passed to Higher Service were read and this seems to have been appreciated by many. The Workshops centred on the preparations for our Centennial Celebrations and you will hear much more of all this in due course. I was honoured to welcome Senior Lions from other Districts to our Convention - a sure sign we know how to celebrate Convention here in 105D.

Saturday evening saw the usual Banquet and Ball which was another success and a sell out - a rare occurrence at 105D Conventions in recent years. Again, many were still on the dance floor at the end of another enjoyable evening during which the formalities were kept to the absolute minimum.

Around 75 Lions and guests were in the Hampshire Suite for 10am on Sunday morning - despite the clocks moving forward and it being Mother's Day. This included a recap on the Workshops, further presentations of awards which I kept to a minimum on Saturday and a lively Question and Answer session in which Jim Ervin, Phil Nathan and Council Chair Phil Robinson had agreed to field questions. We concluded with our now customary bacon rolls to end our weekend's festivities.

Our District Convention 2014 was a truly wonderful and exhilarating experience and one which will live with us for ever. I am so grateful to everyone who was involved especially those who organised this annual get-together and to all of those Lions and guests who joined us, whether for part or all of the weekend. It was this support and total involvement of everyone which made such a difference and helped make our Convention the success it was.


Your District Governor,

David Merchant
