The San Pedro Lions Club is proud to report that many good things were accomplished throughout the year 1999. As we proceed into the year 2000 we look forward to a beneficial year so as to continue serving our community. The San Pedro Lions Club can only keep its strength with the town's help and support. President Severo Guerrero has been very instrumental in leading the club. We are happy to report the following:

New Year's Eve Dance and Raffle a Success

    The annual New Year's Eve dance and raffle held by the San Pedro Lions Club was a resounding success. Love Explosion of Orange Walk was a great hit and party lovers celebrated beyond sunrise. Total raffle sales amounted to $1,991.00, admission fees totaled $3,361.50 and bar sales were $3,260. After expenses were deducted the Lions Club was pleasantly surprised to have a profit of $5,133.34. The club thanks all those who donated to the raffle and attended the dance.

It's convention time once again

    The National Convention for members of the Lions Clubs of Belize is just around the corner. This year the convention will be hosted by the dynamic members of the Belmopan Lions Club. The dates have been set for April 28th, 29th and 30th. The convention is held yearly to bring the five clubs of Belize together to share Lionism spirit and ideas. District Governor Lion Leonides Cuellar has urged all clubs to elect a convention chairman and to start preparations for this scheduled occasion. At a recent meeting of the San Pedro Lions Club, Lion Felix Ayuso Jr. was elected to fill this position assisted by Lion Carmen Eiley as co-chairperson. San Pedro Lions Club has always been a strong supporter of the convention and attended in full force. Preparations will commence immediately to elect a new Miss San Pedro Lions Club to represent San Pedro at the convention. Ideas are welcome to make San Pedro's participation at the 2000 Lions Convention in Belmopan a success.

More donations for San Pedro Lions Club Inter-community Hospital

    Lion Ramon Nuñez, Chief fundraiser for the San Pedro Lions Club Inter-Community Hospital continues his tireless efforts to raise funds for this project. At a recent general meeting, Lion Ramon presented the club with yet another donation totaling $1,187 that he personally collected from a group of guests that were staying at Ramon's Village.

    In other related news Eduardo "Papo" Alamilla, renown local artist has offered to donate a large Lion marble statue to the inter-community hospital.

Update on San Pedro Fire Victims fund

    After the unfortunate recent tragedy that destroyed two houses on Barrier Reef Drive, San Pedro joined forces to raise funds for the victims. An impressive amount was collected through individuals and businesses. Many pledged their labor or prized possessions to be used in raffles. The Board of Directors of the San Pedro Lions Club was offered the responsibility of administrating the funds wisely. After speaking to the victims it was unanimously agreed that the Valdez family be assisted immediately in the construction of their new home. The treasurer of the club has traveled to the city and purchased all the necessary materials and supplies to commence the building. The club would like to remind those who pledged money to deliver their donation to Mr. Abel Guerrero at the Lions weekly bar-b-que or call him at 026-2043. 

San Pedro Lions donate to Venezuela's disaster fund

    Our South American neighbors in Venezuela have been severely affected by the recent floods and landslides that killed thousands. Past District Governor Lion Baldemar Graniel who is a member of Circle Internet chat line, consisting mainly of Lions throughout the world, requested help for these victims. Lions made contributions towards this cause directly through Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF). The reason being that the total amount that Lions raised was promised to be matched by LCIF, making the total donation double. The San Pedro Lions Club has made a contribution of $1000 to this cause.
