Lion District 19D spans more than 700 miles, stretching from Mattawa, Washington, north to Prince George, British Columbia.
Our clubs and members support a variety of programs that provide necessary assistance to those in need in our communities. We volunteer thousands of hours every year to help make our communities better places to live and raise a family.
District 19D 2017 Spring Conference
"When Lions Dream" A Huge Success!
Over 275 Lions, Lioness, LEOs and guests attended the 2016-2017 District 19D Spring Conference held in Vernon, BC, hosted by the Kamloops Lions. Much fellowship, fun and learning took place under the Conference theme "When Lions Dream".
Saturday noon guest speaker Gail Pifer with her Dog Guide, Merry, was an inspiration to everyone in rapt attention as she described how Merry has become a vital and integral part of her life of sightlessness. Let's all keep supporting the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides Centre for the wonderful work they do.
PID Yves Leveille was the guest speaker at the Governor's Banquet and he urged us all to say YES - which can and will lead to growth, learning, service, and so much more - instead of saying NO - which leads to nothing and goes nowhere. How simple but powerful a message to live by!
Contests & Awards entertained everyone with music, performances and uniform parades. Morning and afternoon panels covered many areas of interest and education. Raffle prizes and silent auction items were hotly sought after. Members lost over the past year were respectfully remembered in a Memorial service. District Higher Officers were elected for the upcoming year. Recognitions were given and inductions were held. A Good Time was had by all!
