Lions Clubs international director returns to Island after 39 years

The international director of the Lions Clubs has returned to his honeymoon destination of Bermuda to help celebrate a milestone anniversary.

Douglas Alexander enjoyed a four-day trip to the Island to help the Paget Lions Club celebrate its 25 years of service to the community.

It was his third visit to Bermuda, having visited in 1970 with his church and 1972 on honeymoon with his late wife Terry.

Mr Alexander, who is from Brooklyn, New York, was elected to serve a two-year term as director of The International Association of Lions Clubs at the international convention in Sydney, Australia, last year.

The Paget Lions Club’s 25th anniversary celebrations included a banquet at the Fairmont Southampton Resort.

During his trip, Mr Alexander also visited Government House to meet Governor Sir Richard Gozney.

Mr Alexander said he had been “very excited” to be in Bermuda at the end of last month and was glad he managed to squeeze in a bit of sightseeing.

He has two daughters and has been a member of the Brooklyn Bedford Stuyvesant Lions Club since 1984. He is a retired vice president for JP Morgan Chase Bank.
