Lions throughout the world celebrate Lions Centennial Year in 2017.
Convention delegates attending the 55th Multiple District 308 Lions Convention have many good reasons to converge in JOHOR BAHRU on April 28th - May 1st, 2017. Besides coming together to celebrate a successful centennial year in service, they will be there to remember the past contributions of those who have gone before us, and at the same time to elect in the new district leadership & the MD teams to kick start the new Lionistic century and to inspire the younger Lions for yet another 100 years of Lionistic success.
The theme of the 55th MD308 Lions Convention “Inspiring the Next 100 Years” is aptly chosen to amplify the Lions desire in marching ahead.
It is also the time for the delegates to rekindle old friendships and to make new ones. Most importantly of all for this convention, it is the time for delegates of the MD Convention to cross the Lions’ 100th years mark together, only once in a life time.
Lions have great incentives in attending the said convention in JB. Among others, the bargained hotel rates, the modern meeting facilities and a great convention program installed by the Convention Organizing Committee. We will also take them with us in our convention parade through the heritage cultural streets in old town JB which are dotted with eateries ranging from Hainanese style western food, Indian Cuisine, and traditional coffee, half boiled eggs and charcoal burned roti kawin served in popular kopitiams.
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, JOHOR BAHRU has a lot to offer. Many luxurious shopping outlets and world renowned theme parks have taken foot in JB to serve the international visitors.
The historical Johor has much more to offer during your stay. Come and discover the rich history of the Johor Sultanate and that of the migrants who came some 200 years ago to make Johor their home, and who have now called themselves Bangsa Johor. Many foreigners participating in Malaysia’s Second Homes program have also bought residential properties in Johor Bahru, especially along the luxurious water front living areas.
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.
