It gives me great joy, honour and privilege to formally invite you to the 3rd Lions Africa Forum 20th – 23rd October 2022, taking place in Hammamet in Tunisia, located on the coast, south of the capital.
Tunis boasts of many world class tourist attractions including the Bardo Museum which was originally a 13th-century Hafsid palace, located in the (then) suburbs of Tunis. The ruins of Carthage are nearby, along the coast to the northeast, with many ancient ruins.
The medina of Tunis has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. The Medina contains some 700 monuments, including palaces, mosques, mausoleums, madrasas and fountains dating from the Almohad and the Hafsid periods of the 12th and 13th centuries.
As the COVID pandemic has abated and physical gatherings are now returning to normal, the Executive Officers of our Association will be gracing the Forum, thereby adding colour and even more excitement to the Forum.
No doubt the presence of these esteemed officers with their full compliments of office will boost the morale of all Lions in the newest Constitutional Area, CA 8 of our esteemed Association.
Needless to mention that apart from the rich programme content, the Forum in Tunisia promises to be a tourist and Lions delight, as Tunisia is known for its golden beaches, friendly weather and affordable luxuries. Besides, Hammamet, the hub of the Forum activities and accommodation in the outskirts of Tunis, is noted for its serenity and hospitality splendour.
Members of the Lions family and friends of Africa are therefore respectfully invited to be part of the unforgettable experience which AF 2022 in Tunisia promises to offer.
Dear friends, as part of the culture of the Tunisians, treating guests very well is an everyday routine; hence the Lions of Tunisia cannot wait to receive all Lions into their warm embrace in Tunis.
It is therefore with a great sense of responsibility that I enjoin you all to be part of history once again by ensuring that you all register early and be physically present in Tunisia to exchange ideas on service experiences, best practices as well as learn from the lessons of the shortcomings of the past. …..What about knowing more about the new LCI’s STRATEGIC PLAN, the new GMA and of course the LCIF’s strategies on fundraising and local impact in the areas of humanitarian service, response to emergencies and providing support to Districts and clubs in service delivery of the LCI’s core service areas like Diabetes, childhood cancer, youth empowerment, vision and the environment?
Besides, Africa shall be honoured with your gracious presence to witness the traditional change of baton of leadership of Africa at the Forum in Tunis.
I love you all; and I look forward to meeting and sharing all the fun with you in Tunis.
Thank you and God bless.
