Happy Birthday Wetherby Lions !

Lions Clubs International celebrated its centenary in 2017, and on Saturday Wetherby Lions Club celebrated being a mere youngster by comparison, and held a dinner party to celebrate its 52nd Charter anniversary – founding of the Club.

The Town Mayor, Norma Harrington, made an after-dinner speech, thanking Wetherby Lions members for their charitable and support work within the community. Norma was also kind enough to present prizes at the end of the evening, two of these being in the form of funding for local charities chosen by the winners of the prizes.

‘James Bond’ was the central theme to the black tie event, held in the Ballroom of Wetherby Town Hall, and after a superb dinner, guests mingled at ‘Casino Royale’.

Whilst most people may not actually recall them being in Bond films, games organised for the evening included the extremely popular ‘Play Your Cards Right’ and ‘Wheel of Fortune’! Both of these attracted sizeable crowds all evening and drew squeals of delight and groans of exasperation in equal measure!

All in all, a ‘roaring success’ - and great fun was had by all present - see more photos here
