Presidents Handover

The president's handover took place on Friday 26th June in the Lisdoo, Dundalk.  We were delighted to welcome back many retired members who joined us for the night.  A big surprise for our in-coming president, Irene Mayock, was the arrival of her parents and brother at the dinner.  An even bigger surprise greeted 4 of our long-serving members when they were awarded Melvin Jones awards for their long and dedicated service to Dundalk Lions Club and the community we serve.
