Our "Forged in Service" M6 District Convention will be held March 31-April 1. 2023 at the DoubleTree, by Hilton (2431 N. Glenstone) Springfield, MO.
Friday night, March 31, We are trying something completely different!! It seems Lions are quickly embracing this. We will have beautiful food/snack trays, prepared by the hotel. Each tray has been sponsored. Did you hear that? All food trays have been sponsored!! Lions will not be buying, preparing, carrying in and storing food and beverage. All Lions attending will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy each other’s company. Everyone will have a chance to visit with our visiting International Director, Deb Weaverling and her spouse, Lion Ron. We will have a Cash Bar for those interested. Dress code is comfortable with your jeans/pants, a lion’s shirt, or vest.
Saturday, April 1, We will have a lot of information and Service projects going on throughout the day. District Governor Bart has asked us for new ideas and more than one Service project. So, our Committee is trying our best to deliver. PDG Kevin announced one already, we will have a "Hammer Drive". No, not actually hammering nails, we are all supposed to bring a hammer, if we choose. These will be donated to be added to our District's Alert Trailer.
Saturday evening, we will wrap up the convention at the DoubleTree for our banquet session. Doors open at 6 pm & the banquet beginning at 7:00 PM. We will celebrate with our International Director, awards, voting results and so much more. Dress code is business dress (No jeans, t-shirts, flip flops), Formal dress not required.
Any questions can be directed to our Convention Chair, PDG Debbie Cantrell

We are thrilled at the location, The DoubleTree, by Hilton. It is a beautiful venue, and they have the famous DoubleTree Cookies!!

It normally books for $179 so make your reservations before our room block expires to lock-in that special rate.
