Inauguration October 2010

On Monday 20 October we had our combined business meeting and dinner. We were graced by the presence of Nick Maré, our District Governor, who inaugurated two new Lions.

The new venue at the Union Club is very pleasant and the dinner was a very pleasant affair – dignified and tasteful, yet relaxed and friendly.

The Lions Drive

The Lions Drive is a monthly event. Started in 1962, the Lions Drive developed into a well-organised treat for a group of Sterkfontein patients every month.

The patients are picked up at the hospital and taken to the Walter Sisulu Botanical Garden. There they are treated on tea and eats and taken for a walk through the garden. Sometimes they get goodie bags and other nice thing to take back with them to the hospital.

They were formerly given cigarettes, but that was stopped for obvious reasons. There are no complaints about that from the patients.
