For those of you who were not able to participate in the 2015 Lions
Convention in Kerrville, you missed a great meeting. We had our
full delegation present to vote for all the candidates for various offices including our own Lion Chris Condren who was elected to the
LSRF Board. At the Youth Contests, the Edgewood Lions had a
Clean Sweep with our Club Queen Celeste Lozano becoming the
District Queen and placing 2nd. In the Drug Awareness Speech.
Friedericke Davis, our Former Queen, took 1st Place in the Diabetic
Awareness Essay Contest. Because of their outstanding efforts, our
contestants will benefit with $2,500 in additional scholarships.
