Newcastle Lions enjoy International visits by Lions.
Newcastle Lions Club made a big effort to make the visit by the International Director Brian Sheehan and the international board to Northern Ireland a great success. Club members travelled to Belfast City airport to help welcome the international visitors, helped out at the welcome desk at the Culloden Hotel base and took part in as many events with the group as possible, including walking with the visitors in the Belfast St Patrick's Day parade. For one club member Emma Chestnutt, who is a member of Columbo Lions Alexandrite Sri Lanka and an associate member of Newcastle Lions Club, the visit was inspiring when she met up International Director Mahesh Pasqual and his family Dr Manel and their daughter Imasha in Belfast. The club were well represented at the Townhall meeting organised by International Director Brian in the Europa Hotel, where they stressed the need for better communication to the public about the work of Lions as a way of increasing membership.
