Lions give out honors



The Plymouth Lions Club honored contributors and outstanding members at their February meeting held at Amore. Two members received the highest honor within Lions International, the prestigious Melvin Jones Fellowship Award. Recipients were Robert Unger (second from top, right, with wife Betty (center) and Lions President Jerry Baltus), a member since 1974 and past president in 1981-82 as well as Richard Meilahn (top photo), a member since 1980 and past president in 1993-94. The Melvin Jones Fellowship Award is conferred by the local Lions Club by donating $1,000 each in the name of the recipient toward Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF). Plymouth Lions made two such donations this year, both earmarked in support of the Superstorm Sandy contribution program that LCIF has mobilized. Plymouth Lions also honored outstanding corporate contributors Sargento Foods Inc. and Masters Gallery Foods, Inc. for their support of the popular Lions Corn and Cheese stand at the annual Sheboygan County Fair. Awards were accepted by Mike McEvoy (bottom photo, right, with Baltus), presidentfood ingredients division of Sargento and Mark Grasse (second from bottom, right, with Baltus), vice-president of manufacturing at Masters Gallery. Both recipients commented on the strong family culture that fosters their success in the community allowing them to support local causes alongside organizations such as Lions. Plymouth Lions supports a variety of local causes from children's education and well-being to aid for the needy to support of our military. The signature cause of Lions International is support of the blind which Plymouth Lions embody through their maintenance and lending of reading machines to sight impaired individuals in the Plymouth area. Support for programs such as Wisconsin Lions Camp (supporting handicapped children) and Leader Dog (“seeing eye” dogs for the blind) also define Lions Club. The thousands of dollars contributed each year by Plymouth Lions Club are raised through fundraising events such as the Fish Boil set for Friday, April 12 at Amore in Plymouth.
