Lions Club members descended on Orewa in force last weekend for their annual district convention.
More than 170 Lions from 80 clubs were hosted by Orewa Lions.
The convention was held at Orewa College Arts & Events Centre and included a Halloween themed Spooktacular Ball on Saturday October 28.
Orewa Lions convention chair Mandy Hebben says a huge effort was made to ensure this ball was super scary, with a fake electric chair among the ‘decorations’. The Banned, dressed in Halloween costumes, provided live music.
The convention also included a remembrance service and flag ceremony as well as a business session.
