To mark Lion's Club International's 100th anniversary in 2017, the Lions International held their annual convention with a rally in Chicago, Illinois (where the Lion's Club was founded). Lions from all over the world attended this auspicious occasion. Members of Poplar Hill and District Lions Club undertook a huge journey moving their Poplar Hillbilly's float across to the USA. In preparation for crossing the border, they contacted the US Customs who refused the Hillbilly float flat out. The float's cabin being made of wood rang the alarm bells, so the Hillbillys had to scrap the cabin and rebuild with sheet metal. The amazing work behind the logistics of moving the float and the tow car were not easy but they managed to fit it all together in Chicago. Not only did they partake in the parade with floats from all over the world,
THEY WON FIRST PRIZE! How about that for putting Poplar Hill and District on the world map!
