Fall Conference 2019


The Fall Conference will be held at the Doubletree Hotel in Charlottesville


We hope you can join us at our Fall Conference this year. Start with a Dinner and Bingo on Friday night. Then join us on Saturday morning for a full day of informative classes, a great lunch with an engaging speaker, followed by more classes and our district meeting, and ending with a Murder Mystery during our dinner banquet Saturday night.



You can still get $129/night special Lions room rate, but you must call the hotel directly at (434) 973-2121.
Tell them that you are with the Lions Club and want the special rate.
