Members of the San Pedro Lions Club as they prepare to leave for Nicaragua

On May 16th, 2001, twenty-three San Pedro Lions Club members and friends set off to the "Land of Lakes and Volcanoes", Nicaragua to attend the Istmania Convention. Neatly attired, the group was indeed ready to experience yet another serious adventure as they traveled to this beautiful destination. The theme for this year was "Nicaragua 2001 con leonismo hacia el tercer milenio" (Nicaragua 2001 with Lionism towards the third millennium). The Multiple District "D" Istmania is the convention that brings together Lions from Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. For many years now, the Lions of Belize has been invited as guests of honor to this convention and been able to share their own views on Lionism. During their five-day stay in Nicaragua, the San Pedro delegation represented the Lions of Belize Zone 59 with much pride as they participated in the cultural presentation, hospitality booth and gala evenings. The Lions of San Pedro took the opportunity to hand out printed material, Belizean products and used other paraphernalia to display our beautiful jewel in their hospitality booth. The San Pedro theme, "Taking services to new heights," attracted hundreds of conventioneers who jumped at the chance to sample some of Belize's best. Apart from the wonderful Central American treats, the gathering also gave conventioneers an opportunity to make new friends.

    Adding to the large participation from Belize, without a doubt, was the presence of Miss Belize Lions Zone 59 Luisana Nuñez of San Pedro. Luisana stole the hearts of many through her charm and grace not only with her cultural presentation but during the entire convention. In addition to the scheduled programs, the San Pedro delegation also visited some scenic places of this country which included tours of Managua, Granada and other points of interest.

    The presence of the Belize Lions Zone 59 was very noticeable at this convention as the San Pedro group made certain to demonstrate the friendliness that is recognized as truly  Belizean. The San Pedro Lions Club would like to take this opportunity to thank the following businesses that provided the delegation with give-a-ways, products, t-shirts and other supplies.
