(He received 100 % awards each year he held these positions.) He was also elected to the Arizona State Eye and Ear Program Board for two separate terms.
Moving to Oklahoma in 1997 he joined the Lawton Noon Club and served as their Secretary before transferring to the Lawton Northeast Lions where he has served as Treasurer 2 years, President 2 years and Zone Chairman.
After serving his term for 3L District Governor in 2008 he began recruiting members for a new Lions Club in Lawton. The Patriots Lions Club chartered in the summer of 2009. If it weren't for the vision and leadership of Al Williams our club would not exist. He leaves behind a very strong legacy in generosity and serving the community. He will always be a guiding light shining down on us.
