San Pedro Lions Club strengthens ties with Sarteneja and attends the Belize Zone 59 board installation

The San Pedro Lions Club is back on the island after a productive two-day trip to the mainland which saw new members joining the club, strengthening alliances, and witnessing the installation of the new board of directors of Zone 59 (to which the club belongs). The events also saw members of the island club receiving certificates of appreciation and awards.

On Saturday, October 8th, President Everette Anderson, and a delegation, including Past District Governor (PDG) Lion Gilberto Alcoser Lopez, headed to the village of Sarteneja in the northern Corozal District. They visited on behalf of Zone 59 for Lions Club International. In Sarteneja, they met with residents interested in helping the less fortunate in their community through Lions. President Anderson had been in consultation with the executive director of the Sarteneja Alliance for Conservation and Development, Joel Verde, and other villagers for over a year. The discussion touched on the benefits of having a Lions club in Sarteneja. Anderson said such efforts were fruitful after registering eight new members joining their club as a membership branch in Sarteneja. "We aim to have a full Lions Club in this 'Lionistic' year," said Anderson. That same day, the San Pedro club members attended the Zone 59 board of directors' installation in Belize City. "We were graced with the presence of our international Lion brothers and sisters," said Anderson. Present at the event were representatives from Nicaragua and Mexico.
