Autumn Forum

Autumn Forum 2020

Due to world wide pandemic (COVID19) we had to think outside of the box this year for Autumn Forum, and for the first time we hosted a Virtual Autumn Forum & Fireworks via zoom.Members of 105CW came together focusing on our theme of ‘One Vision’, at the start of the event District Governor Lion Richard Williams had a key message for us all.

We were then joined by Dan Letchford from Guide Dogs for the Blind who delivered a great presentation about the work of the charity and how having Rosina enhances his daily life.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkAOE2VAO_M&feature=youtu.be

We then had a chance to go into breakout rooms and enjoy our own tea and cakes as we caught up with each other’s news from across the District.

Post cake and chat we watched a video presentation of what 105CW Lions have been doing during lockdown – “If we are going to walk, we are going to walk as lions”

During the event we had the opportunity to thank those who have completed the Certified Guiding Lions Programme this year – they are part of the support network we have across the district to help Lions and Clubs develop, grow and volunteer to serve in the community.https://youtu.be/hWrBKumWKTI

District Governor Lion Richard Williams presented our Immediate Past District Governor Lion Ian Gott with his PDG Medal  and thanked him for his service to the District and our International Association.

Our first virtual Autumn Forum finished with a Firework Display to a medley of Queen Songs – the event has received some fantastic feedback and proved once again that “Lions – It’s A Kind Of Magic”

We hope you will join us for next year’s event, hopefully in person, fingers crossed.
