A longtime Brussels Lions member was honored with the club’s highest obtainable honor this week for his humanitarian work. Leonard Zittlow was presented the prestigious Melvin Jones Fellowship Thursday evening during a joint meeting of the Forestville and Maplewood Lions Club. Zittlow says he was not expecting the award and was appreciative of the recognition.
The award is named after Melvin Jones who founded the Lions Club International over 100 years ago. Zittlow has served as the treasurer for the Brussels Lions Club for the past 13 years.
