Multiple District Peace Poster Judging 28th November 2015
The Multiple District Peace Poster Judging took place at the 2nd Council Meeting held in PE on 28th November 2015. It was hosted by District D – District Governor Bokkie Oberholzer and Past Council Chairperson Wally Smith who stood in for District Chairperson Ray Clarkson Brown (Peace Poster Coordinator).
Thank you for hosting this special event, for setting up the whole process and for the sourcing of the 3 experienced judges. The artwork from all the districts was very impressive and the judges had a difficult time in making a decision due to the high level and quality of the artwork. But as we know there can only be one winner at any competition. District A’s winning poster will represent our Multiple District 410 at Lions Clubs International Grande Finale Peace Poster Contest next year 2016.

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.
