District Convention 

47th Annual Convention
 NOVEMBER 11 & 12, 2022   Radisson Hotel and Convention Center, Fond du Lac

The Lions and Leos of 27-B1 invite you to the 47th Annual Convention of District 27-B1 at the Radisson Hotel and Convention Center in Fond du Lac.


The District 27 B1 convention planning team has an AWESOME convention planned for November 11th and 12th at the Radisson Hotel in Fond du lac. District Governor Dave Brinkman’s Friday night hospitality has a military theme in honor of Veteran’s Day, “WE SERVED OUR COUNTRY, NOW WE SERVE OUR COMMUNITY”. Our special guest will be International Director Dianne Pitts and her husband, Dr. Joe Pitts from Chappells, South Carolina.


For those coming on Friday, the hotel has their special Friday Fish Fry available in the dining room. The hotel is also offering a 10% discount on all meals for registered hotel guests. After that great meal, come to the Friday night hospitality, which will include music and games. Costume theme is military; come dressed in your favorite military branch of the service.


District Governor Dave will officially open the convention with a presentation of the flag. Local veterans will carry the various flags. There will also be a salute to all branches of the service to thank them for their service. The Service of Remembrance will take place to honor all those Lions who have passed since our last convention. If your club has lost a member, please send a picture to PDG Tom Clausen at so these Lions can be respectfully remembered. This will be followed by district business reports and nominations. A POWER HOUR will present various Lions project updates.


Lunch will follow with ID Dianne Pitts giving her Keynote Address. Awards presentations along with the annual District Bank Auction and something new this year; PDG Len Quinn’s special cowboy hat will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to Leader Dog. A special thank you to Lion Kay Quinn for this donation.


Three seminars will be provided after lunch. The first will be a speaker on the “Old Glory” Honor Flight. Second seminar will be on Scams and Fraud. And the third seminar will be LCIF Grants presented by ID Pitts.


Voting will take place 15 minutes after the last seminar. The Saturday night banquet will include guest speaker Dr. Joe Pitts. Voting and raffle results will also be announced. Governor Dave will officially close the convention.


Mark your calendars because you don’t want to miss out on a fun weekend of Lions Spirit! Any new Lions who are “1st Timers” to a convention, make sure to pick up a contest sheet to fill out. Prizes will be awarded.
