Brussels Lions members were awarded 27B2 Club of the Year honors at the organization’s district awards ceremony on Saturday. The club beat out 70 others to earn the distinction thanks to strong membership recruitment numbers and their commitment to a number of different service projects. Brussels Lions Club Secretary Penny Wautier, who also received International President Gudren’s “New Voices” award for her work with membership, says it is a recognition of the great things they try to do for the community.
Wautier says Brussels Lions members were among the only ones in the district to complete service projects in five key areas: vision, hunger, environment, youth, and diabetes.
