Aquia Evening Lions

Centennial Project Dedication

On Saturday, October 14, 2017, the Aquia Evening Lions dedicated their Lions Centennial project, a Lions bench, to the people of Aquia Harbour at a ribbon-cutting ceremony outside the Aquia Harbour Clubhouse Restaurant.  Presiding was Aquia Evening Lions President Bea Klapak who extended brief remarks followed by Lions of Virginia District Governor 24-A Sally Kenavan.

Lion Bea said that “The Lions have been in existence for 100 years, and this is our Club’s International, and LCI is the largest service organization in the world.”  District Governor Sally remarked that “On this Centennial anniversary of Lionism, we wanted to give a visible gift to the community with no strings attached.”  She said that Melvin Jones had a profound saying that “You can’t get very far in life until you start doing something for someone else.”  Lion Sally continued, “As the largest service organization in the world, we want to represent the Lions’ motto, which is WE SERVE.”

With the remarks concluded, the Aquia Harbour Property Owners Association (AHPOA) President Christopher Greene and AHPOA General Manager Trish Harman cut the ribbon.  Also present were AHPOA Treasurer Don Winter, AHPOA Director Shawn Desmond, Aquia Harbour Police Chief Nate Thompson, and Aquia Harbour Country Clubhouse Manager George White, along with 12 Aquia Evening Lions and five Aquia Harbour Host Lions.
