The District 13-OH6 Lions Zone Seven leadership meeting was held recently, where the Lynchburg Lions Club received several special awards in recognition of its community service and Lions promotion projects.

These awards were to be presented at the District Convention last year, but the event was canceled due to COVID concerns. The awards were later presented at the recent Zone meeting.

The Lynchburg Lions Club received the first-place plaque for small division clubs in the Governor’s competition. The Governor’s Award is presented in recognition of the total program of activities throughout the year. It recognizes a club’s involvement in local, district and worldwide service projects, its fundraising events and its support for the local community.

The club also received the third-place plaque for communications and public relations activities.

Lion Virginia Rhonemus was named Lion of the Year for Zone Seven. She has been a very active Lion for many years in the Lynchburg Lions Club. She has served in nearly every activity that the Lions Club has done. She is highly respected and well-known for her community service. Congratulations to Lion Virginia.
