Lions, Leo clubs awarded

TROY — The Troy Lions Club and the Newton Leo Club recently recently shared an honor. The two community services organizations worked together on several projects and earned the “Leo-Lion Serving Together” banner patch award. The award was authorized by the Lions Club International Board of Directors to recognize activities supporting Leo-Lion collaboration. The Newton Leo Club is sponsored as a youth group of the local Lions Club. Together they have worked on a joint Strawberry Festival booth, joint convention meetings and joint social events.

“This award recognizes the efforts of our Leo Club members and the hard work they do with us to provide community service,” said Lions Club Secretary Sheryl Schlater .

Troy Lion and Leo Club Adviser Scott Davis added, “Although the Leos operate independently and provide services around the school and around Pleasant Hill, they help us as much as we help them. It is a really nice collaboration.”

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