Lions District 18-C Governor Troy Pullin of Cordele praised members of the Bainbridge Lions Club Wednesday for supporting Lions projects locally as well as throughout the country and the world.
Following his remarks, District Governor Pullin installed the club’s officers for the 2012-2013 Lions year.
Immediate past Lions president Randy Dunlap presented new president Brenda Howell and the club with an award the club had received for financing the planting of trees and beautifying Lions Club areas around the world.
President Howell read a letter from a 19-year-old blind young man thanking the club for a leader dog he had received that will allow him to pursue his dream of going to college and ultimately teaching the blind and visually impaired.
“Lions is a world wide organization but the caring generosity starts right here in your home club,” District Governor Pullin said. “The glasses that you purchase for your local citizens demonstrate the caring devotion you have for your local community.”
Officers installed with president Howell Wednesday included first vice president Frank Loeffler, second vice president Larry Miles, third vice president Ken Horn, treasurer Jim Beck, secretary Mike Miller and Lion tamer Cindy Markham.
Also installed were tail twister Lewis Jones. chaplain and one year director Bruce Mann, membership chairman Tuffy Nussbaum, one year director Reggie Dean and two year directors Ron Gilliard and Woody Woodward.
