Februrary 19, 2-11 Dinner and program

We always like to honor our lions that have put a great deal of service into Lionism. Milt Taylor (right), Dave Monson (middle) & Dee Mecham (absent) received their 30 year chevrons. Thanks so much for the difference you have made. Lynn Seely, president (left) presented the chevrons.

We were privileged of have the Monkey Town Cloggers perform for us. They are from the Monkey Town area of Pleasant Grove. We thank Anne Fisher
for getting this group for us.

It was our opportunity once again this year to present an individual from the area with the Humanitarian of the Year Award. Dr. David Dickerson has traveled all over the world (such as Taiwan and Peru) giving dental services to third world counties and to individuals that would never have this kind of help any other way. He takes a team with him. There are a couple of planned trips coming up this year. He shared with us video and slides of the many people he and his team served. We are so proud of the difference he has made in so many lives.
The Pleasant Grove Lions is always finding ways to improve the lives of individuals in the community. We are now looking at providing scholarships for students in the local area for Boy and Girls State, HOBY leadership program and college educational persuits.
