Knowle & Dorridge Lions Club was established in 1976.
That’s right – we are forty years old in 2016.
Coincidently 1976 was the year Lion Brian Burgess joined our newly formed Club.
Not only in those 40 years has Brian has served our Club in many roles, including being President four times, he has held a number of Cabinet posts. He became District Treasurer in 1985, a role he has resumed in recent years, and by the way he was District Governor in 1989-90.
To mark this special milestone President Bob Thurtle thanked Brian for his great service to our community and presented Brian with a 40 year pin to add to his many other awards.
Brian said that he had great memories of his 40 years but conceded he is not as nimble and able to be quite as active now as in the early days. He wished the Club well for the next 40 !!!
Meanwhile the opportunity was taken for a group photo of those who attended the Club meeting. It being half term apologies had been submitted from far & wide.
