At the Cosmopolis Lions Club dinner meeting earlier this month, Dave Palmer and Rod Matye received the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award from current President Spence Wiltse.

The award was created in 1973 and was named after founder of Lions Clubs International, Melvin Jones. The Melvin Jones Fellowship is a recognition of a commitment to humanitarian work. The fellowship is the foundation’s highest honour and represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion, and concern for the less fortunate.

Lion Diane Shapansky was presented the “Lion of the Year” award from outgoing President Dave Palmer.
