Dear fellow Lions, how are you keeping?
Lion members throughout the world celebrate Lions Centennial Year in 2017.
Lions in Multiple District 308 have many good reasons to converge in JOHOR BAHRU on April 28th - May 1st, 2017. Besides celebrating a successful centennial year in service in the various clubs and districts, Lions of today have an obligation to help elect in the new leadership teams for the future and to inspire the younger and newer Lions for yet another 100 years of Lionistic success. The theme of the 55th MD308 Lions Convention “Inspiring the Next 100 Years” has been aptly chosen to amplify the Lions desire in marching ahead.
JOHOR BAHRU is fast transforming into an international destination for business, conventions, shopping and tourism. Situated along the new Silk Road, adjacent to Singapore, served by efficient and affordable airlines between JB and East Malaysia, and connected with the rest of Peninsular Malaysia by a modern road system and efficient railways, Lions have great incentives in attending the MD convention in JB, among them, the bargained hotel rates, modern meeting facilities and great programs installed by the COC. Lions who were here in 1998 and 2008 as convention delegates must come back to see for themselves the amazingly transformed JB, especially the Iskandar Development area boasting of, among others, the new Puteri Harbour, Uni Park, Medical Park, Johor Premium Outlets, Lego Land and the luxurious seafront livings. We will also take you through the heritage cultural streets in old town JB dotted with eateries ranging from Hainanese style western food, Southern Indian Cuisine, and traditional coffee, half boiled eggs and charcoal burned roti kawin served in famous kopitiams. I urge you to spend extra time during your stay to discover Johor, its rich history of the Johor Sultanate and the Indonesians, Chinese and Indians who came 200 years ago to make Johor their home, and who have now called themselves Bangsa Johor.
The twenty two Lions clubs in Johor Bahru are proud to be the host to the convention delegates for a rejuvenating convention experience come 2017.
On behalf of the hosting clubs and the Convention Organizing Committee, I bid you my warmest welcome to the land of plenty.
MD 308 的分會代表有很多很好的理由出席將于2017年4月28日至5月1日在柔佛州新山会聚參加第55届308复合区狮子会代表大会。除了慶祝區會與分會的服務功績，也同時前來投下他們那神聖的一票以選出來屆的區會及复合區領導。这也是代表们重温友谊，并结识新朋友的时间。鼎記前人植樹後人乘涼的同時，他們也將一同跨越百年里程碑，為下一個百年共商良計。
新山的二十二間獅子會有幸于2017年做東接待各方嘉賓代表。小弟僅此代表主辦當局及籌委會同仁熱烈歡迎第55屆國際獅子會308複合區年會的所有代表們在明年四月間蒞臨新山 Johor Persada International Convention Centre與會。恭候光臨。
