Pack your bags, grab your golf clubs and get ready to celebrate your commitment to Where Theres a NeedLionism. Today marks the start of the 2018 Wisconsin Lions State Convention, and we’re excited to get reacquainted with our friends in Lake Geneva at the Grand Geneva.

The convention unofficially starts this morning at 9 am with a four-person scramble at The Brute Golf Course. The Magnificent Brute is considered one of the most challenging layouts within the Midwest and one of Wisconsin’s best courses. We’re looking forward to seeing how our groups compete. At 3 pm, convention registration will take place, and hospitality will run from 7 pm to 10 pm in the Evergreen. (Don’t forget to dress as your favorite futuristic character!)

The learning opportunities will get started at 9 am with meetings and informational seminars. At 11:30 am, we will get to listen to motivational speaker Michael Schnitzka as he shares his experience as a world record-holding athlete and adventurer extraordinaire. He’ll act as a guide through his journey of a lifetime while encouraging all of us to create our own.

Saturday starts bright and early! After breakfast, you will be able to visit exhibitors and  take part is a service project. District meetings will begin at 9 am, followed by seminars about the 2018 LCI Convention, social media and diabetes. Our keynote luncheon speech will come from Past President J. Frank Moore who will share his inspiring story. On Saturday evening, hospitality and banquet will wrap up the convention. We’re in for an extra special treat as our most talented Lions will be showing off their skills in an exclusive edition of “MD27’s Got Talent.” See the entire convention schedule here.

We have another fun weekend ahead of us filled with outstanding information and even better company. Lions Pride would like to extend a special note of gratitude to the Watertown Lions Club for hosting this event. We always enjoy weekends away with friends.

See you in Lake Geneva!
