At our Club dinner meeting on July 18, President Greg DeRosa opened a package mailed to our Post Office Box. It contained several pairs of eyeglasses, a very nice note from the donor, and a check for our charity programs.

Lion Ken Schutz planned, organized and led the Club’s primary charity fund-raising activities: two citrus fruit sales, the Fall Festival Octoberfest Food Sale, and the July 4th Hot Dog sale. Ken also leads the Club’s Vehicle Donation Program. Each of those activities was a great success, and raised funds that enabled Fairfax Lions Club to pursue numerous charity programs throughout the year.

Join Us in Congratulating Ken Schutz for this Award Recognizing of His Excellence as a Fairfax Lion!

Ken will be publicly recognized on August 2, 2023 in a special Volunteer of the Year ceremony at 7:30pm, in the Sherwood Center where all service club Volunteers-of-the-Year in the Fairfax area will be celebrated. The Mayor of the City of Fairfax presides.
