Last Saturday night, the Cornwall Lions Club held a terrific banquet at the Best Western Parkway Inn in celebration of their 75th year in service.
Guests from all 41 South Clubs, many dressed up in 1940’s attire to commemorate the early beginnings of the club, enjoyed a wonderful meal and were entertained by a Frank Sinatra impersonator, Michael Mirand.
The Governor, the 1st VDG and PDGs, Region and Zone Chairs were also in attendance. Letters from the Governor General of Canada, The Prime Minister of Canada, The Premier of Ontario, our Member of Parliament and Member of Provincial Parliament were read to the public.
The event also honoured a couple of outstanding Lions, giving the Melvin Jones Fellowship award to Lion Ted Langstaff and the Helen Keller Award to Lion Paul Lefebvre.
The Seeker would like to congratulate the Cornwall Lions for their outstanding achievement.
