WELLINGTON — Following a five-meeting hiatus due to COVID-19, two Lions members were front and center to receive their Milestone Chevron Awards during the June 13 meeting.
New Boss Lion Rex Henard presented Lion Fraya Hammons her 15-year Milestone Chevron Award, and Lions Angie McDanel and Bev Odom their 10-year awards.
“Presented by Lions Clubs International, the Chevron Award is aptly named after the chevron symbol in reference to a badge indicating length of service,” wrote International Lions President Dr. Jung-Yul Choi in his congratulations letter. “Commitment by honorees to provide many years of service as a member is commendable, as you have touched the lives of many. The ripple effect of your service has given us the opportunity to celebrate and continue to serve through diversity to make the world a better place.”
The Lions also have been busy helping local pets by sponsoring the annual pet vaccination clinic on June 13 at Ellison Park pavilion. Connie Lindley, DVM and her Critter Care staff from Childress, administered almost 80 rabies injections plus additional shots for some pets.
In other Lions business, Gene Pena led the pledge to the U.S. flag, Margret Wood led the pledge to the Texas flag, Jeff Pastor offered the invocation and Paul Schaub led in singing “America the Beautiful” accompanied by Lion Shirley Henard on the piano. Schaub also recognized all Lions who celebrated a birthday or anniversary during the months of April, May and June. Nancy Harris read the minutes of the March 16 meeting and Neal Odom presented the financial report.
Geney Gulley served the chicken fried steak dinner prior to club business.
