Queensland Lions Convention – Proserpine Entertainment Centre
The Cabaret Show comments I received from all delegates yesterday was overwhelming and excitingly positive, they could not find enough words of praise and joy. One man said he had attended 41 conferences during his time in Lions and that was the best one ever, and could never better that performance!! The praise just kept on coming and coming even from real blokey men who you would never expect to comment on Showbiz. Some got quite emotional with words handshakes and hugs trying to express their words of emotions. At the closing of Convention Awards yesterday the Convention Chair could hardly finish his words of praise for the Banquet as he was so moved with the success. The District Governor Gordon Bailey from Townsville was so overwhelmed with the Show and said nothing could top that at any future Lions Convention.
I personally thank and admire your professional skills as an artist and as an Australian Icon. Best wishes to you in appreciation…
