|Lions Mike A., Becky A., Mike N.|
Lion Mike Norton was, shall we say overwhelmed by his award? As Zone Chair for Southeast Alaska, he's had his hands full visiting Clubs, keeping members informed of what's happening at the District and International level, and providing support to the clubs as well as the District Governor. Looking after his Clubs has been a priority for him this past year. But to be presented with Lion of the Year was not expected! He tells me he was shaking from the news and if you know this man at all, you know this is out of the ordinary. But he has worked terribly hard this past year and we're very proud of this award. Only one other Mendenhall Flying Lion has ever received Lion of the Year at the District level--Lion Mal Linthwaite.
Lions Becky and Mike have a year to enjoy their trophy and this feeling of floating on air. Being a Lion isn't about the awards or the recognition. It's about service to your community, about helping others.... But being recognized for your hard work is also important. Getting that pat on the back once in awhile is always a good thing. It makes us want to "do" more.
