"We Serve Through Diversity"
Lions Learning Retreat Mission:
To offer a weekend retreat designed to provide individual Lions with tools to use in their local clubs to enhance and improve their opportunities to succeed in serving their communities and Lions Clubs International.
Thanks to the MD-12 Council of Governors for their support of the Lions Learning Retreat.
The Manchester-Coffee County Conference Center has become the long-term home of this event and we appreciate the great facilities and service. The volunteer presenters and speakers who will provide the leadership and instruction for the weekend are ready to make sure you have the best possible experience. We hope you will be invigorated and encouraged and that you take home new tools to enrich your service. Thank you for being a part of the future of Lions in Tennessee.
