It is with the greatest honour that one of our own, Lion Bill Vermilyea, was presented with the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award at this year’s District A-4 Convention, April 23-24, in Ottawa. The Melvin Jones Fellowship was established by Lions Clubs International Foundations (LCIF) to acknowledge an individual’s dedication to humanitarian service.
Lion Bill is a very active member of our Club and District and always eager to serve in any way he can. Currently, he holds the positions of Club LCIF Coordinator, Club Service Chairperson, and District A-4 Reporter for our Lion’s Magazine. Lion Bill shared his experience of receiving the Award at our last meeting and likened it to working towards and winning the Stanley Cup. Recognition well deserved and congratulations from us all!
