Clement Kusiak’s visit to Bulgaria
Mr. Clement F. Kusiak, the past president of the Lions Club International and current president of the Lions Clubs International Foundation, visited Bulgaria on April 2. A Lions/Leo event was held at the Boyana Residence in Sofia. The event was in two parts – welcome of the esteemed guest Mr. Kusiak, official chartering of the Veliko Tarnovo Tzarevetz Leo Club, and working lunch.
The chartering of the Veliko Tarnovo Tzarevetz Leo Club was held at a ceremony at the same time of the event. The new Leo club is an alpha Leo. I spoke after the chatering ceremony and congratulated the new club. Also, in my speech I underlined my belief that such organizations such as the Leo will be working for a better Bulgaria.
I also presented the special gifts, folder for collecting the minutes of meetings, as well as a set of symbolic sticks, representing the unity of the Leos, which the Sofia Leo Club presented to Veliko Tarnovo Tzarevetz Leo Club.
At the end of the event, our Leo Club presented a special photo collage, representing Mr. Kusiak at a photo, during the start of the Lions wood in the South Park, and a couple of photos of us, the Sofia Leo Club, while planting three trees during our March 24 tree planting initiative.
