Istanbul Piyerloti Lions Club members are organising a panel and a programme for the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli, and are inviting participation by New Zealand Lions with a Gallipoli connection.
The following letter has been received from Berrin Kesler, Piyerloti Lions Club president:
“We would like to share our mutual past memories, to remember again the Dardanelles Campaign days together with the Lion veterans of New Zealand, their Lion children and Lion grandchildren. We are cordially waiting for them in Istanbul for realising a peace brotherhood between us.
But in order to better organise this event we need the number of persons who are willing to participate. The date and the programme will then be shared with them. We kindly ask for them to contact us by email."
