During her year a President Wynson is intending to promote the Lions with an increasing social media presence and is also producing a video of Lions activities, which will be shown at various events. Wynson intends to promote both friendship and harmony through the Lions involvement in the local community and to raise public awareness of the work that the Lions do. Some readers may not be aware that the Lions is an International organisation with over 1.2 million members world -wide. Wynson said “If at the end of the year I have facilitated people to participate in Lions events, I will consider my year to have achieved one of my main objectives.” Wynson has several other interests, which include running a Rummikub club- a very interesting board game.
