Lions Club of Tortola launches 50th anniversary license plate

The Lions Club of Tortola, which was chartered on April 27, 1972, has launched a Commemorative Motor Vehicle Registration Plate as part of its 50th Anniversary Celebration in the Virgin Islands.

The launch of the commemorative plate was done at Caribbean Cellars Limited on Wickham's Cay II on Wednesday, April 27, 2022.

During the unveiling of the plate, President of the Lions Club of Tortola Kevin S. Fahie said orders can now be made at the Department of Motor Vehicles at Pockwood Pond.

"We encourage persons to go down to DMV [to] purchase a plate, we want to flood the BVI with Lion's Club plates. We see all the other clubs with their plates out there and they look lovely but now it's time for the Lions..."

The commemorative plates cost $150 a pair and proceeds will go towards projects of the club.
