This week, the Brussels Lions Club was paid a visit by District Governor Lion Amy Quig as she presented multiple awards. The top honor a Lions Club member can receive was awarded to Brussels Lions Secretary, Penny Wautier. She was presented the Melvin Jones Fellowship, named after the Lions Club founder, which goes to a club member who has gone above and beyond in their role. Wautier said she doesn’t like to be a bragger, but she did feel honored.
At the presentation, Ron Delwiche was also awarded a 55-year membership chevron for his years of serving with the Lions. Wautier referenced the history of the Lions, saying it’s a big reason she tries to get younger generations involved. Wautier also showed gratitude for the presence of Quig, who made the trip from Pickerel to speak to the Lions Club.
