1-BK 2018 Convention Info & Registration - April 20-21 @ Bolingbrook
Feb-11-2018

It’s Almost Here…

 

...AND THE CELEBRATION CONTINUES

 

The 2018 District 1-BK Convention 

 

Fellow 1-BK Lions,

 

Make plans now to join your fellow District Lions as we continue with the excitement and fun experienced during our 100th Anniversary Celebration in Chicago.  We plan on continuing that excitement and fun with your 1-BK District Convention, April 20-21, 2018 to be held at the Holiday Inn in Bolingbrook. 

 

Everyone will be together Friday night to enjoy fun, games, fellowship, hospitality and some surprises.  Saturday morning kicks off with a breakfast as we call the Convention to order followed by seminars to help make us stronger in our communities.

 

Our lunch will be the big event with our Guest Speaker International Director Alan Lundgren from Scottsdale, AZ.  Immediately after lunch we will honor our fellow Lions who have passed on with our ‘Celebration of Service’.The afternoon will conclude with our procedure to elect Lion Lori Linn to be our next Governor along those who will assist her in leading our District in 2018-2019. 

 

Everyone is invited to attend our Saturday evening dinner where we will pay tribute to our Past District Governors and our newest members (‘The Old & New’).  And of course, the hospitality room will reopen to help finish our Saturday celebration.    

 

A tentative listing of the events is attached to this email.  Also attached are: a Registration form, your club’s delegate certification form, along with information on purchasing ads for our program book and donating items for our Silent Auction.

 

The room rate at the Holiday Inn is $99.00 (plus tax) per night. Contact the hotel to make your reservations and let them know you are with BK-1 to get that special room rate. You must reserve your room by March 30th to receive the special room rate.

 

You will be getting an additional mailing on purchasing ads for the program book.  Buying Ads for the program book and donating merchandise for the Silent Auction helps to offset other convention expenses.  The Convention Committee appreciates whatever your club can do to help us in those areas.

 

See you in Bolingbrook,

                                                                            Get ready for a weekend of fun!

Lion John Joseph Honiotes

1BK Update on LCI 2018 Int'l Convention in Las Vegas
Dec-06-2017

Fellow 1BK Lions:
Recently, we got together to discuss the International Convention. Yes, there’s a committee of 10 District representatives meeting to discuss what we can do to make the trip more enjoyable for all that attend, and maybe save some money. I know you’ve seen this through our Cabinet Meeting notes, but I thought I’d publish, once again, a small article about the upcoming convention coming up in June.
The Convention will take place in Las Vegas! You know how much fun that can be if you’re not careful.
The last date to register, for the discount rate of $150 each, is rapidly approaching; it’s 1/12/18. After that, it goes to $200 each. So, don’t delay if you want the discount. And if you do register, remember to get the room at Luxor Tower. Once again, that’s Luxor Tower. That’s the hotel for the Illinois delegation; not the Luxor. Please keep this in mind when registering.
The Convention will, of course, take place in the Summer so dress accordingly. To that end, the Parade uniform has changed to allow khaki shorts, or capris. It still has a white polo and the blue vest; I’m not sure about the shoes, but I’m sure it’ll be something “summery”. By the way, Lion Bob Block has some of these vests available to purchase at the bargain price of $5. (gov8990@aol.com)
And finally, the Committee is looking for volunteers. Check it out on the Convention website at Lions2018lasvegas.org to see what you can do lend a hand. There’s plenty to do!!!!
Until then, we’ll be seeing you around, and have a Merry Christmas!

Dave Wheeler, PDG MD-1B
