It was a day of recognition for the Minden Lions on Thursday as their noon meeting last Thursday marked the end of the 2021-22 club year. Several awards were presented, and new officers and board members were installed. A summary of the year’s club events and community service activities was presented. Lions that went to be with Jesus during the club year were remembered with a moment of silence: Lions Larry House, Graydon Kitchens and Terry Gardner.
The club also wishes to thank Lion Jerry Madden for his dedicated service as District 8-L Governor. This marked the first time since 1973 that the Minden Lions Club had a member serve as district governor. Well done, sir!
Three Lions were recognized with chevron pins for years of club membership. They included Lions Jimmy Hall, 15 years; Kent Gibson, 20 years; outgoing Lion President Tracy Campbell; and Sherb Sentell, 25 years.
Lions Tracy Campbell and Jerry Madden received membership keys for sponsoring at least one new club member in 2021-22.
Outgoing Lion District Governor Jerry Madden presented several Distinguished Service Awards to Lions who went above and beyond in service during the 2021-22 club year. They were Lions Tracy Campbell, Drew Brown (Minden Evening Lions Club), Kevin McCann, Jerry Brannen, and Jerry Madden.
