Lions Appoint New President and Welcome New Member

After 3 years as Henley Lions President, Wendy Franklin handed over the reins to David Skinner at the Club’s meeting on Monday evening at the King’s Arms Barn.

Before David was presented with the chain of office, he thanked Wendy for her hard work and for baking before presenting her with a bouquet of flowers.  He said, “When I polished the chain this evening, I felt the history on my shoulder of what others have done before me.  It is a great privilege and thank you for asking me to take on this role again.”

Wendy said, “It’s been very much a pleasure to be president for the last 3 years.  I’m looking forward to continuing to help David in his presidency.  The highlight has been the swimarathons.  It has been great to see lots of local kids involved in doing this.”

Henley Lions were delighted to officially welcome new member, David Adamson who was presented with his membership badge and certificate.  Dave said, “I decided to join because I respect the valuable work that the Henley Lions do in the community.  I’m very pleased to become a member to help with this.”
