On Saturday, April 27, Dayton Noon Lions Immediate Past President and Lions District 2- S2 Second Vice District Governor, Mike George, was voted into the position of First Vice District Governor for the 2024- 2025 fiscal year.

George is the first member in the 36- year history of the club to be in the district governor chain of command.

“ I am honored to have been elected to this position,” said George. “ Bill Simpson of the Humble Noon Lions Club, was elected to become District Governor and the two of us are already make plans to build the district and increase the service among the seven counties the district represents,” he said.

Both of these clubs, as well as clubs in Liberty and Barbers Hill, among others, are all members of Lions Clubs International which was established in 1917. In 1925, Helen Keller addressed the organization and challenged them to be her Knights of the Blind. All clubs still collect used eye glasses to be refurbished and given to people from around the globe who need and can’t get glasses.

The organization has eight pillars of need they support: Vision, Diabetes, Childhood Cancer, Hunger, Disaster Relief, Youth, Humanitarian Efforts and Environment.

Dayton Noon Lions meet on the first and third Wednesdays of each month at noon within the confines of The Texas Kountry Kitchen on Main Street in downtown Dayton. If you’d like to learn more about Lions and the Pillars of Service, you’re welcome to join us at one of our meetings. You’ll also be invited to help with one of our upcoming service projects.

After all, our motto is simply that, “ We Serve.
