The merged local Lions clubs – now the Greenwich Lions Club – ended its first “united” year on a high note with a swearing in of new officers and prestigious awards bestowed on outstanding long-time volunteers.
Pictured flanking the Lions banner are retiring president David Bonney and incoming president Kammi Mehta. With them, from left, are officers Doug Carlson, Alan Gunzberg, Kevin McCarthy, and Jim Stafford.
Mr. Bonney and Mr. Gunzberg were honored with Lions International’s Knight of the Blind award for their many years of service.
Mr. Stafford and Sarah Gleeson (not pictured) received the organization’s Ambassador of Sight recognition.
Lions Club International, whose motto is “We Serve,” turns 100 this year. The largest service organization in the world, it numbers over 1.4 million volunteers working in 200 countries to improve their communities by meeting humanitarian needs.
