Linda Dale, Joan Selby and Susan Rosenthal were inducted as new members of the Cedar Key Lions Club on January 27.
The induction ceremony was presided by Earl Box, a longtime Cedar Key Winter Resident and Lions Past District Governor, sharing stories of his experience as a Lion in Canada as well as the reminding members of the history and tradition of Lions community service, especially in the area of vision care, going back to Helen Keller’s challenge in 1925 to the Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness."
Linda, Joan and Susan were welcomed and pinned by their respective sponsors, Faye Sanders and Ralph Selby, who also stood in as sponsor for Susan, whose sponsor, Steve Rosenthal, was out ill.
The three new Lions join the 1.36 million members in 210 countries and geographic areas, meeting the needs of local communities worldwide, sharing a core belief: community is what we make it.
When you join the Lions, you join a global service network. So, at the same time that you're doing local community service, you can also contribute to Lions volunteer efforts around the world.
