Blackall Range Lions welcome IPIP

Contributed by Peter Jensen
THE Lions Clubs of the Blackall Range were privileged to host Immediate Past International President (IPIP) of Lions International, Brian Sheehan, and his wife Lori before they flew to Melbourne for the Lions International Convention.
Brian and Lori arrived after visiting war-torn locations in the Middle East as part of Brian’s current role as President of the Lions Club International Foundation, which provides grants to disaster areas worldwide.
In the past year, LCIF humanitarian aid has assisted earthquake victims in Nepal, victims of war in Ukraine and the Middle East, and, closer to home, provided US$200,000 for North Queensland flood victims, among many others.
The international guests visited Montville for lunch with the Blackall Range Club before exploring Mary Cairncross Reserve. The Lions International Convention, held June 21-24, 2024, is only the third to be held in Australia.
Sunshine Coast Lions were privileged to enjoy the company of Brian and Lori.
