Lions Clubs worldwide recognize outstanding individual members by bestowing on them an award named for the founder of Lionism, Melvin Jones. This award is the highest form of recognition and embodies humanitarian ideas consistent with the nature and purpose of Lionism. The recipient of this award, chosen by past honorees is a model of exemplary service to his club and the community which it serves.
We are proud to have within our past and current membership at least eight individuals who have received the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award. Pictured below are Mike Lancor (’11), Betty Wasson, and in the group photo (from left to right): Ed Dobson, Pat Strickland, Jim Guppy, Bob Purdy, Charlie Strickland and George Costello.
