Mid-Year “Food 4 Thought” Conference 2015

Mid-Year "Food 4 Thought" Conference 2015The half day, Mid-Year ‘ Food 4 Thought ’ Conference, held at the Portuguese Club, Milnerton, on Saturday 7 November 2015, was attended by 170 Lions & Leos and approximately 30 guests.

DG Sue was presented with a Melvin Jones Fellowship by Lion President Sundru of Kirstenbosch.

The Leos used their artistic talent to decorate the tables with donated vegetables which in turn were given to a school feeding scheme. Delegates were asked to bring tins of food which will be distributed by the Leos to various food projects.

We were fortunate to have two excellent guest speakers; Michelle Wridgeway on Diabetes Awareness and Jeremy Opperman, with his dog Gatsby, on SA Guide Dogs. Those present had the opportunity of meeting ‘our’ two black Labrador puppies, Leo and Melvin, who thoroughly enjoyed all the attention.

1st VDG Lance Maytham, assisted by PDG Paula Lang, presented the Long Service Awards. PDG Denis Slade was present to receive his 55 Year Award, but unfortunately, the other recipient, Cyril Fisher, was unable to attend.

The Conference concluded with the announcement of the top three Peace Poster Winners, two of whom were present to receive their prizes.
