Bainbridge Lions Club installs new officers, awards Lion of the Year at annual banquet

Jason Williams, Bainbridge Lions Club first vice president and Lion Tamer, was named Lion of the Year highlighting the Bainbridge Lions Club’s annual awards day Wednesday at Bainbridge Country Club.

Stephen Whittaker, who was installed as Lions Club president, said it was a privilege to announce Williams, the club’s first vice president and who also served as program chairman, as Lion of the Year.

“When Jason Williams, who is also our Lion Tamer, joined the Bainbridge lions Club in 2016, he did not hesitate to jump in with both feet,” Whittaker said. “Over the years he demonstrated a heart of service, faithfully attended meetings and loyally serving, whether it was driving stakes into the ground for Mule Day in Calvary or through his positions on our board of directors and as our program chairman.”

Other officers installed Wednesday were second vice president Frank Loeffler, second vice president Edward Seabrooks, third vice president Wanda Thomas, treasurer and secretary Mike Miller, Tail Twister and one-year director Tuffy Nussbaum, one-year director Jim Beck and two-year director and chaplain Bruce Mann.
