In fact there were representatives from Antrim Coast, a fantastic number from Ballsbridge, Banbridge, Bangor, Bray, Clontarf, Cork, Crosby, Drogheda, Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Fairlop, Killiney, Malahide, Sligo, Stony Stratford, Swords, Thame and Thurles.

District Governor Bernard Black

The Guest of Honour was District Governor Bernard Black and his wife Kate along with the International Director Elect, Past District Governor Teresa Dineen and Declan. The UK contingent consisted of Past District Governor Andrew Allen from Stony Stratford in Milton Keyes and his wife, Lion Doreen from Fairlop in Romford, Essex, Past District Governor Tom Tyson and Past District Governor Sue Tyson from Crosby in Liverpool, and Past District Governor John Savill and Linda from Thame north of London.

Club President John Powell, who was presented with his 40 year chevron by the District Governor on the night, welcomed the guests and outlined the many activities undertaken by Howth/Sutton over the last fifty years and also remembered deceased members before proposing the toast to the Lions Clubs International.
