District 105D Welcomes Lawrie McMenemy to our Convention

DG David Taylor presents Laurie McMenenemy with a donation to the special OlympicsThe 52nd Annual Convention for Lions District 105D took place on Saturday 25th March 2017 at the Wessex Hotel, Bournemouth. 

Our guest speaker was Lawrie McMenemy most famously known as the Manager of Southampton Football Club during their most successful period in history, guiding his team to FA Cup victory in 1976 against Manchester United. As Southampton Manager, Lawrie also introduced an enhanced youth development policy. Graduates of this programme include England internationals Mark Wright, Matthew Le Tissier and Alan Shearer.

Lawrie was appointed Chairman of Special Olympics Great Britain in 2004. He was awarded an MBE Honours by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 2006 and was made a Freeman of the City of Southampton in 2007. Lawrie is an Ambassador for the Football Association, President of Age Concern, Hampshire, and also supports the Alzheimer's Society and the Hampshire Autistic Society.

As well as serving as President and former Chairman of the Board of Directors from 2004 until 2010, Lawrie is highly regarded Ambassador for Special Olympics GB and we were pleased to welcome him to our 2017 Convention.

Special Olympics GB

DISTRICT 105D SUPPORT THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS

SOGB Sheffield logoIn 2010 I listened to Lawrie McMenemy address our national convention in Leeds. He reduced many of us to tears of emotion as he described his work with the Special Olympics organisation and his speech motivated me to volunteer at the next national games in Bath in 2013.

It proved to be the most fulfilling, and rewarding, week of my time as a member of Lions Clubs!  Together with the dozens of other Lions from around the country, including many from our own District, I experienced the same emotions Lawrie had described 3 years earlier. This was the true meaning of what we do in Lions - “We Serve”.

In 2016, my experiences led my son, who lives in Los Angeles, to volunteer at the Worldwide Games in California - with the same result.

In 2017 - our Centennial year - Lions will again be supporting the next National Special Olympics GB (SOGB) Games in Sheffield with 3,000 athletes and 5,000 family members (many from our area) by providing the Families Programme. I will be there working directly for SOGB as an event coordinator at the football tournament.

Before that happens, I am proud to say that Lawrie McMenemy has accepted my invitation to speak at our District Convention in Bournemouth; local Special Olympics athletes will also be there as meters and greeters.

Consequently, I am asking the Clubs and Members of District 105D to raise funds and donate them to our District Special Olympics Appeal Fund. Why? Please visit our Special Olympics website page and take time to view the videos. /news/specialolympics.html 

Thank you
