The Town of Niagara Lions Club recently hosted Lion President Tatiana Maslennikova and Lion Elena Mitriaeva of the Stars of St. Petersburg Lions Club from Russia. Maslennikova and Mitriaeva were on their way to the Lions International Convention in Chicago. The two guests were treated to a tour of Niagara Falls, including a ride on the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds. The visit included gift exchanges by the two Lions presidents. Also, Lion Joan Boyce presented Maslennikova and Mitriaeva with four scarfs and Mary Ann Hess of Niagara's Honeymoon Sweets gave them Niagara Falls specialty chocolates.
The club may create a joint project, which would exchange the culture of both countries.
