While we don't have any pictures...

...there is some news:
Two more members of the Anderson Lions Club were presented with the Melvin Jones Fellowship at the recent Lions District 4-C1 Convention. This brings to nine the number of fellowships held by club members.

The Melvin Jones Fellowship is recognition of a commitment to humanitarian work. It is not an award in the tradition of Lions awards presented for specific accomplishments. Created in 1973, the fellowship is named for the founder of Lions Clubs International, Melvin Jones. The fellowship is the foundation's highest honor and represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion, and concern for the less fortunate.

Melvin Jones Fellows receive a lapel pin and a personalized wall plaque in honor of their commitment to helping others.
