Dear Lions Friends,We just had a spectacular convention. The numerous emails that we received prove that our international guests were just as happy with it as our German Lions - who hosted it - were.
We would like to give our heartfelt thanks to the organizers of the convention! This in particular means everyone from the various departments of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. But, above all, it means the volunteers, without whom our success would not have been possible. Sporting red vests, their friendliness and smiles became synonymous with the convention. This will most certainly be unforgettable to all Lions.
We will keep the website up for the next few years, so that interested Lions around the world have the chance to download information and memories. Currently, we are still in the process of uploading images and videos as well as a comprehensive press overview under Press. When we are done, however, we will stop modifying the site. The online shop will be open until the end of 2013 for sure, and even after it closes the purchase of items will still be possible. All you have to do is send an email to:
Our slogan was "Meet friends in Hamburg". We definitely lived up to it, and things were taken one step further with "Make friends in Hamburg". These friendships will have an impact on all of us in the years to come.
I am proud and happy that all of the hard work throughout the years has paid off.
All the best wishes - also on behalf of the host committee!
Barbara Grewe (Chairperson)
