Droitwich Lions Club 4

Trawling through the old pictures brings back memories of some of the lovely people it has been my privilege to know. These two are Len Hare and Joan Gough. Joan was the wife of Lion Ted Gough and they were a delight. Ted was a gentleman in the true sense of the word and Joan, who suffered with poor health later in life never let it get her down and kept going until the end. Len was devoted to his wife Iris and he was always full of fund raising ideas. We used to refer to his Hare brained schemes. 

 

This picture was at one of our golf tournaments which ran successfully for many years and was largely the brainchild of Len. 

 

Sadly Len, Iris, Ted and Joan are gone but it was a pleasure to count them as friends

I am enjoying your romp down Lions Memory Lane, Bill.

It seems Len, Iris, Ted and Joan all kept going to the end, and all got there eventually.
Bill Phillips: If there is a heaven then they should all be there
a fine shot Bill, and it is nice to associate this shot with happy memories of wonderful friends.

And did you play golf too.A fine sport played by gentlemen.
