TROY — The Lions Club District Governor Micheal Gibbs recently made his official visit to the Troy Lions Club.

The governor traditionally makes at least one personal visit to each of the 45 Lions clubs within his district during his one-year term of office. This visit is to inspect the local club and answer any concerns or questions. The purpose is also to directly communicate to the local Lions any district and state news. In addition to supervising the clubs with the district, Gibbs is one of 10 such governors that make up the Council of Lions responsible for running the Lions state office and activities. Gibbs will also be responsible for the district convention near the end of his term.

Gibbs thanked the local Troy Lions Club members for their community service. He especially pointed out the Sight Conservation Project, which provides eye exams and eyeglasses for the needy of Miami County and for the lead in the Lions pre-school vision screening program that the Troy Lions have taken. He also noted the Troy annual scholarship, sponsoring the Newton Leo Club and the other youth programs of the club. Gibbs then updated the club on upcoming events of the annual leadership retreat and district convention.

The Troy Lions Club is a non-profit community service organization serving Troy, Covington, Pleasant Hill, Piqua, Tipp City, and surrounding areas of Miami County since 1942. Their primary mission is vision health. The Troy Lions Club also supports many community programs. For more information, see the Lions website at or call (937) 335-7345.
