The Summit Lions Club presented two Melvin Jones Awards to Lion Adrian Hawkins and Dr. John Boozan at Marco Polos on September 14th. Lions Clubs world-wide recognize outstanding individuals by bestowing on them an award that is named for its founder, Melvin Jones. This award is the highest form of recognition and embodies humanitarian ideas consistent with the nature and purpose of LIONS. The Summit Lions meets monthly and focuses on the welfare of those persons who are blind or visually impaired.
Lion Lori Cicali, Allstate agent, is again glad to report that the Allstate Foundation has made a contribution of $1000 to our mission to service the blind in the Summit Area. Shown in photo is Lion President Peter Loeser.
The Summit Lions Club recently hosted the Union County Association for the Blind's holiday meeting. We served up over 90 homemade sandwiches, 100 bags of snacks 136 cans of soda & 64 bottles of water. With some help from Junior Lions Tallulah Cardazone and Kristina Miller the evening was a success and the UCAB members were well fed and enjoyed some holiday music while they caught up with friends together. Meetings are held once a month and hosted in turn by the many Lions Clubs in Union county.
