On May 20 over 500 Lions converged on the Waco Convention Center for the State Lions Convention. They had been anticipating this opportunity to see our Lion friends in person for a long time, and it did not disappoint. There were a variety of events in progress during the convention from a BBQ dinner, to service projects on-site, to delicious meals complete with desserts, to awards being given, to a Leo state convention, and fundraising to boot. All of this was being monitored by our special guests Past International President Lion Sid Scruggs and his wife Lion Judy Scruggs from North Carolina. The Scruggs were hosted by Past International Director Lion Sam Lindsey and wife Lion Jodye Lindsey, who I’m convinced took great care of them during their time here. Marlin Lions attended the convention.
