Numerous friends and supporters of the San Pedro Lions Club gathered at the Lions Den last Sunday to witness the crowning of Miss Lions 2000-2001.

An all-day chicken barbecue and food sale was held to raise funds for the queen's participation at the convention April 28th - 30th in Belmopan.

    Master of Ceremonies, Lion Beto Marin livened up the event doing periodical announcements throughout the day. The official ceremony was opened by members of the San Pedro Dance Company who graciously performed three dance selections before the crowning. Reigning Miss Lions Irenie Gonzalez was then escorted on stage by her father, Past President Lion Ruben Gonzalez. In addressing the gathering she expressed thanks to the club for choosing her as last year's queen. She reminisced about the great times she experienced at the last convention held in San Estevan and wished Luisana the best of luck at the upcoming convention. Newly elected Queen Luisana Nuñez was then escorted on stage by President Severo Guerrero who thanked Irenie for the fine job she did representing the club and thanked Luisana for accepting the position. Irenie then did the honors of sashing and crowning Luisana who, in accepting, mentioned that she was honored to represent the San Pedro Lions Club and would do her best to make the club proud of her. The celebration then continued with music and plenty to eat and drink.
