Many things happen in the hot Arizona summer months. Lions Debbie & Larry Vine, Karen & John Walker and Jay and Gwen McMichael were able to attend Lions Club International Convention in Toronto for the election of AZ Lion Joe Preston as International President. There is a great group of AZ Lions in attendance here. The International Parade was held July 5 and as always there was representation from MANY countries. It is always a treat to see the many countries and states dressed the same to show off their countries and states. After the parade Lions Debbie and Larry and Jay and Gwen enjoyed lunch at the CN Tower. The International Show with Neil Sedaka ended the second day of convention. Busy days will follow with the campaigning for both Lion Joe and Lion Bob Corlew for 2nd VP.

We will be meeting only once in July the 4th Wednesday because of convention. August we will meet the 2nd and 4th Wednesday along with the Summer kick-off Meeting on August 23.
