District A-15 Convention 2016-2017'

Registration Form

Friday May 5th - Sunday May 7th, 2017, Elmira Lions Hall

We remind you of some of the unique/special features of this year's convention.

  • Governor's Centennial Award. Each club is asked to submit a name of a member whom they feel is deserving of special recognition during our Centennial year. Please complete and submit the application form. These awards will be presented Saturday night at the Banquet. (Application form for Governor's Centennial Award)
  • Cost of the Saturday night banquet is set at the modest price of $38. Hopefully this will allow all Lions to attend. The dress code is optional; there will be no long speeches and we have exciting entertainment and music to follow dinner.
  • The lunch Saturday noon and the breakfast Sunday morning, both provided by the Elmira Lions Club, will be free to all registrants. There will be a donation box with all proceeds going to a Feed the Hungry Program to support one of our Centennial themes.
  • This is our Centennial Year. Each Club has been challenged to complete a project for this Centennial. We are asking clubs to showcase these Centennial Projects at the Convention by providing a display. You will be offered a time on Saturday morning to brag about your project, if you wish.
  • Each Region, under the guidance of the Region Chairs, will present a brief skit Friday night about Centennial and/or any other lionistic activities. Come and enjoy their presentations.
  • Music - Music - Music.
    During and after the hospitality time on Friday night there will be a live band playing in the main hall.
    After the entertainment Saturday night there will be a jamboree featuring Carl Young on the banjo and several Elmira Lions with their guitars. If you play a musical instrument, bring it along and join in. Everyone is welcome.
    On Saturday, immediately after the lunch, another professional live band will be playing all afternoon for our enjoyment.
  • Raffle. Costs to host a convention in Elmira are especially high - mainly because of our tent rentals . We therefore provide you the opportunity to buy tickets in a fabulous raffle.

    Raffle Prizes:
    ->1st Prize - Traeger Junior Smoker BBQ - Donated by Woods, Clemens, Fletcher & Cronin Law Office
    ->2nd Prize - Beautiful handmade Mennonite Quilt, a beautiful addition to any Queen-sized bed.
