The M6 District Convention for 2021 is still proceeding with convention plans. It's been a hard year for allot of us and we are working on having a fun, learning more on Lions Club & giving a safe district convention for all Lions in our district to sounding Lion friends to join us.
The convention has been pushed to May 21 & 22, 2021 due to the COVID. All convention activities will be held at the Oasis Hotel & Convention Center in Springfield, MO. Contact Convention Chairperson PDG Zana Botzow at email@example.com for more information.
Justin K. Faber, from Deckerville, Michigan, USA was elected to serve as international director of Lions Clubs International at the association’s 102nd International Convention, held in Milan, Italy, July 5 through July 9, 2019.
He became a Lion in 2001 after joining the Ubly Lions Club. Director Faber was instrumental in changing his club from an all-male club to a diverse club that is the pillar of the district today.
He has held a number of offices within the association including MD GST Chairperson, MD Governmental Liaison Committee Chairperson and Council Chairperson. As the council Chairperson he navigated the political scene in the state of Michigan to revise an age-old law that abruptly disallowed Lions from collecting monies in the streets. This small act allows Lions to raise over one million dollars annually in the state. Director Faber was a presenter at theUSA/Canada Leadership Forum as well as the Michigan Forum.
In recognition of his service, Director Faber has received several Presidential Certificates of Appreciation, an International President’s Leadership Award and an International President’s Award. He also was one of four district governors in CA1 to receive Dr. Yamada’s Dignity Award in both halves of the year. Director Faber is also a Melvin Jones Fellow.

The convention seminar's are still in the works to give you the best & learning more of Lions Club information for you to take back to your Lions Clubs.
All clubs are encouraged to participate in the Parade of Banners as the very first item on the Convention Agenda.
Here is how it works:
~ All the Banner carriers meet PROMPTLY at 8:00,
~ Bring you banner, with stand and base, if you have them, in the hallway just outside the meeting room for detailed instructions. (If your club does not have a staff and/or stand, I will have one for you. Be EARLY to ask for it.)
~ At promptly 8:30, District Governor Theresa Kee will tap the Gong. That is our cue to begin the Parade.
~ A Lion will announce each club in order, and the Banner carrier(s) will "Parade" their banner along the designated route, placing their banner in their club's stand. When all club banners have been set, the carriers will be asked to "Be Seated".
IMPORTANT NOTE: If your club's Banner and carrier are late, they will be placed at end of the parade, and may not be recognized/announced from the podium.
If you have any questions, please contact PDG James Rosbrugh email@example.com
