SML Lion Lowell Skelton (left) recently received the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Fellow Award. This prestigious award, which is given to no more than one percent of the volunteers in each state annually, must have he support of the State and Regional Coordinators. As a “Fellow”, he is an esteemed member of a professional group.  Skelton began working with Tax Aide when he joined the SML Lions in 2005.  He recruited volunteers, learned the software, and provided instruction.   If it weren’t for his efforts, there would be no Tax Aide Program in Franklin County today. The award was presented by Bill Jackson, Chair of the SML Lions Tax-Aide project.
