Bathurst member now district governor for Lions International

ALMOST 100 people attended a Lions International district changeover dinner hosted by Bathurst recently.

The District 201 N4 Cabinet 57th annual changeover was held at Panthers Bathurst.

Those attending saw Anne Jones, of the Lions Club of Geurie, between Dubbo and Wellington, hand over the district governor position to Gavan Ellis, member of the Lions Club of Bathurst.

Lions Club of Bathurst president Dominic Chircop said Bathurst last hosted the Lions International cabinet changeover in 2014, when Ian Warren from the local club was made district governor for 2014-15.

“Our club is 58 years old and, in that time, we have had seven district governors from our club,” he said.

Three members of the Lions Club of Bathurst have also been elected to the position of council chair – the national head of Lions in Australia - over the years, Mr Chircop said.

District 201 N4 is the largest Lions district in NSW, stretching from Winmalee in the Blue Mountains in the east to Griffith in the west and from Bourke in the north to Tumbarumba in the south.
