Two special awards were given at the officers' reception.  Brian Thomas (left in photo) was presented a special award for his contribution that brought the Flags from the Heart project to our club.  This project provides high visibility for the club during the Memorial Day weekend with over 200 U.S. flags that were sponsored in memory and in honor of individuals.  Gary Chastain, a member of our club who currently serves as treasurer of the Indiana Lions Speech and Hearing Project, was presented a Richard Miyamoto Fellowship.  This fellowship recognizes individuals who have contributed time and leadership to this state project and the speech and hearing needs of their local communities.

Lion of the Year

Secretary and chairman of the club's Eyeglass Assistance Program Diane Parker was named 'Lion of the Year' by outgoing president Bill Lavery.  She was cited for her relentless hours of service at most of the club's projects.
