June 6, 2013 P. G. Lions Club Dinner Meeting

Once again we as a lions club have the privilege of  sponsoring educational scholarships.  This evening we gave scholarships to Spencer Baker ( going to U of U) and Cassidy Wood (BYU).  See picture below.

From time to time we present a humanitarian award to an outstanding community service to the local community.  This year we presented this award to Officer John Lloyd of the Lindon police department.  He has spearheaded many youth programs including the DEAR program.  His 27 years as a policeman has made a great deal of difference for children in the Pleasant Grove and Lindon communities.  See his picture below.
A service award was given to Jan Macfarlane for 45 years of service to the lions club.  He also received his overdue 40 year  chevron pin.  Jim Fisher receive his 25 year recognition and Dennis Thayne his 20 year chevron pin.  It is great to have such service and support from such lions as Jay, Jim and Dennis. 
For the next 3 weekends the lions club will have an entry in one of the community parades.  June 8th will be the Cedar Hills parade, June 15 will be the Orem Summer Fest parade and June 22 will be the Pleasant Grove Strawberry Days parade.
Lions club is a great way to give back to your community and make a difference in many lives.
