Fairfax Lions Club Presents Three Awards

Posted on June 16, 2021

 Club President Mike Greeley, on June 15th, recognized three Club members for extraordinary accomplishments over the past year:

A Special Award for Excellence was presented to Lion Bill Szymanski, for achieving his personal goal of donating 71 “Power Packs” during the Club “70-for-70” campaign. Bill’s achievement was possible only by his exemplary dedication of time and personal resources, and his desire to support Club charitable work helping others.

A Melvin Jones Fellowship Award was presented to Club 2VP Jim Kaplan for his creative and sustained leadership over the past year to keep club operations on track, and members excited to engage, during the year of Covid.
