Community Volunteer of the Year Award

Lioness member Lou Drewer and her family won the well deserved Community Volunteer of the Year Award from the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce at their annual banquet.We can attest to her volunteer spirit as well. Lou is an outstanding member of our club. Lou always steps up to work extra shifts at our fundraisers and donates those wonderful Smith Island cakes for our bake sales. Recently she volunteered to help with  vision screening of PK and K at Woodson when we were short handed. These are just a few examples of Lou's dedication to our club.  Lou's son, Jesse was the 1st charter president of the Crisfield Academy/High School LEO Club and recently joined the Crisfield Lions Club in February.
