President Stephen was awarded with a Melvin Jones Fellowship, named to honour Melvin Jones

who founded Lions Clubs International 100 years ago. This is the highest award that can be presented to a Lions Club, other than International President medals. “It is very rewarding to help fulfil community needs, and it has been very enjoyable to be involved in the Club for many years,” Stephen said. “I have also enjoyed the fellowship and involvement with

a large number of Club members over the years.” As a member of the Johnsonville Lions Club Stephen has participated in countless club projects including activities such as fundraising cruises on the Interislander ferries, planting hundreds of trees, supporting local youth activities and assisting local community groups with their activities. When presented with the award

Stephen thanked the Club members for their work in the community and their support for him in his endeavours. Stephen also acknowledged the many years of support and encouragement from his wife Rosemary, also a member of Johnsonville Lions, who had passed away just four months ago. The Johnsonville Lions Club currently has 18 members and

meets on Monday evenings at the Johnsonville club in Norman Lane. Lions clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfil those needs.  For more information or to get involved with please contact Stephen Cook at 972 2036 or email
