UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS LIONS CLUB

Tuesday - June 20, 2012

The annual Awards/Installation Banquet was held at Western Sizzlin’ at 6:30 pm on the nineteenth with 29 members and guests in attendance.  After a welcoming message by President Larry Hinck, including appreciation to Eric Grant and Donnie Kissinger (and family) for all their work in setting up for tonight,  we were privileged to be led in singing by our former song leader and Life Member Don Vineyard.  After the pledge of allegiance and invocation, led by Eric grant and Ron Erwin respectively, Bill Dickens performed his tail twisting  duties with Ron McCormick winning the “pot” drawing once again.   Our excellent new Club Directories were distributed by Bill Levins who had put them together and they were promptly employed in filling in the  Tail Twister’s UHLC members and spouses crossword puzzle.

Jim Watkins introduced the guests followed by our guest speaker PDG Norine Westerbeck who, accompanied by an interesting video, discussed the activities of the summer National Camps for Blind Children.  Norine then presented the Melvin Jones Fellows awards to Charles Hartwig and Bill Dickens for their outstanding efforts this year.  Past president Brad Baker then presented Dalstrom Awards to Bryan Ulmer and Bill Levins along with appropriate commentary.

Club Secretary Charles Hartwig read the names and number of years of those with perfect attendance but held off distributing the pins until the next meeting for time constraints.  The exception was Life Member Jim Mashburn who was recognized for his 60 years of perfect attendance.   Next, President Hinck enumerated a few of the year’s outstanding contributions of Secretary Charles Hartwig, who was then presented the very well-deserved Lion of the Year Award.  Additional awards and installations for members who were absent will be presented or conducted at future meetings.

Following all of the recognition presentations, Brad Baker officially installed the club officers for FY 2012-2013 and the new “Immediate Past President” cheerfully then passed the gavel to incoming President Curt Hodges who promptly rang the bell and adjourned the meeting.   Pictures were taken afterward for newspaper publication.

Invite a guest or prospective member.
