At the end of each fiscal year (in June), the Club President designates a club member whose personal effort and energy contributed significantly toward the Fairfax Lions Club mission: “We Serve.” That person is acknowledged as the Fairfax Lion of the Year. For Lions Year 2021-2022, the Fairfax Lion of the Year is Justin Haight.

Congratulations Justin, for this well deserved recognition!
