Steady hand for Cambridge Lions

Jim Goddin is the new president of the Cambridge Lions, the largest Lions club in the country.

The Lions Club of Cambridge has a new president, with Jim Goddin taking the reins from Allan Field at a changeover dinner at the Moxon Centre recently.

“I’m sure I never agreed to it,” Jim laughed, adding that his aim for the club is to keep it ticking over.

With 88 members and four more awaiting induction, the Cambridge Lions Club is the biggest in the country. Jim has been in the club for four years – its youngest member when he was asked to be president. Jim will have plenty on his plate, with the Lions’ Shed alone contributing $200,000 to the community, plus the monthly Trash ‘n’ Treasure and food caravan, the club is a big part of the town.

He has yet to decide on his project, an initiative budgeted for and decided by the president.

The president is elected annually, and there were also other board changes at the dinner on June 23
