He was proud to announce that for the first time in history the International President was a female – Lion Gudrun Yngvadottir from Iceland.

Gavan said that all clubs are unique and fundraise/volunteer in various ways. He spoke on Lions Foundations and touched on membership.
He said: “All clubs need new members and the best way to get new members is simply to ask. Lions are International leaders in Humanitarian Service because of clubs like yours.”
