Lions helped the Mayor, Councillor Gill Taylor, and Civic Leaders commemorate UN Day at a flag raising ceremony at the Council Offices today, 24th October.
Lion President Roger Hogbin was invited to speak on behalf of Lions and said “United Nations Day is a particular cause for celebration for the Weymouth and Portland Lions Club. Over the years, the Lions International and the UN have cooperated on many humanitarian endeavours. Lions have provided aid and manpower for UNICEF, for the World Health Organization and for UNESCO projects. Lions International has a consulting role with the UN Economic and Social Council at UN headquarters in New York. Weymouth and Portland Lions Club are proud of their close association with an organisation that does so much good work addressing global needs.
