THE Lions Clubs International will hold its annual convention on Saipan this month, region chair Annamae Adaza said.

The convention, which will be held in the Hibiscus Hall of Fiesta Resort & Spa on March 14 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., will be attended by Lions from Saipan, Guam, and the Philippines.

The Guam delegation will be headed by district governor Fely Angel. Also participating are district first vice governor-elect Sumie Kuba and immediate past district governor Danny Cruz.

Guam has 18 Lions Clubs while the CNMI has six: the Saipan Fil-Am Lions Club, the Saipan Unity Lions Club, the Saipan Marianas Lions Club, the Saipan Alliance Lions Club, the Saipan Natibu Lions Club, and the Saipan Centennial Lions Club.

Adaza said their guest from the Philippines will include past council chair George Ong-Tan, the global action team area leader for Constitutional Area 5, Multiple District 301.

“This will be his first time to visit Saipan,” she said, adding that the last time the island hosted a Lions convention was in 2017.

Adaza encourages community members to join the Lions, especially those who want to serve the community as volunteers.

“Members pay dues, which are used for recovery efforts after disasters and calamities as well as for projects that engage the youth, protect the environment, provide pediatric care, and help relieve hunger around the world,” Adaza said.

Adaza said the Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service organization with 1.4 million members whose motto is “We Serve.”
