The local McPherson and area Lions Clubs will host Lion leaders from all across Kansas on Aug. 12-14, at the Best Western Convention Complex in McPherson.
This will be the first meeting of the club year of the State Council of Governors, led by Council Chairwoman Fran Smith of Ulysses. The District Governors are: West - Kerry Hookstra of Downs; North East - Linda Leander of Asseria; and South East - Marge Zakoura-Vaughan of Wichita.
