The Lebanese German University – LGU, in collaboration with Universal Lions Club, Jbeil, organized its Charter Night on May 23, 2012, at LGU Campus in Sahel Alma.
Unprecedented in Lebanon and the Middle East, the concept of a campus club has relied on the rewarding efforts of students, administration, and instructors, working in full harmony to lay the foundations of such a successful structure.
Vice District Governor, Wajih Akkary, started up the ceremony welcoming new members and Lions figures and reminding the audience of the values of the Club in all the activities and events it undertakes. Past District Governor, Gaby Gebrayel, read out the Acceptance Speech that confirms the adherence of the new members. This was followed by the Presentation of the Charter and distribution of member pins by District Governor, Wafa Khoury, ending up in the traditional taking of candid photos of new members and Lions figures.
A power point presentation reviewed the activities which the Campus Club has been involved in since the start of the academic year, such as the traditional Oktoberfest, campaigning for Jeita Grotto, the organization of Christmas event and the decoration of LGU campus, donating an LCD TV to LGU campus, the organization of Sunshine Day and a seminar on cervical cancer in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health and Notre Dame du Liban Hospital.
The new president of LGU Lions Campus Club, Nicolas Chami, made a short speech expressing the total dedication of all new members to the cause of the Club and to social service. The ceremony ended with a cocktail.
