**"I'll Push You"

You won't want to miss this very special presentation about the journey of two men across 500 miles of desert, mountains, and rivers of the Camino de Satiago. It's more than the physical journey. It's also the journey through life with no limitations, but with joy and friendship.

Justin and Patrick, from Eagle, Idaho, will inspire you to become more than you are.

Visit their website to learn more about their book and award winning film.

****Open Mic

* Do You Have an Idea?

Do you have a new idea for a project or event? Do you know what it takes to develop that idea?  Lions will be divided into teams to develop a new project idea and take the idea through the planning stages. At the end of the day, Lions will present their projects, they will be judged, and prizes awarded.  Watch for more details!

***Mini Bar Camp

A Bar Camp originated in the tech world as a way for people to share new ideas and brainstorm problems. It's the "Unconvention"-no speakers, no lectures or power point presentations, just knowledgable people sharing what they know and learning from others. We're adopting the format for an hour or so (thus, "mini") for Lions to share and learn about whatever topic interests them. Form a group, leave the group and join another, above all, not only listen but contribute.

Grab your favorite beverage, relax, and join in! Cash bar available.

The District 39W Midwinter Convention will be held February 22-24, 2019 at Courtyard by Marriott in Meridian, Idaho.
