It was an historic occasion marking two important events.
The Newbridge Kildare Lions Club held a celebratory meal. It was to mark the occasion of the District Handover to thank the outgoing District Governor Marion Conneely and welcome the new District Governor, Paul Allen, into post.
It was also to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Newbridge Kildare Lions Club receiving its Charter from the International Association of Lions Clubs!
The Handover Dinner was a great success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Keadeen Hotel. The live music from Panache and Highly Strung, the good food, the ambience of the hotel, the happy company of a pride of Lions and the sense of occasion all added up to create a memorable evening for all.
More photos are to come but here are the first pictures from the historic occasion:
