2013-14 Lion of the Year Award

Our Lion of the Year Award turned out to be the Lion Couple of the Year Award presented to Lions Barb and Vince Mini.  This hardworking couple of Lions has been very active in the club and volunteer side by side at the fundraising events and community service projects. Lion Barb joined the MCEP Lions Club in April 2001 and Lion Vince finally joined her in June 2008.  Lion Barb was instrumental as Club Secretary and Lion Vince has been very persuasive getting guests to buy a square on the split the pot boards at the club’s fundraisers.  Lion Vince serves as a Director of the club.  Lions Barb and Vince sit in on many of the planning meetings for the club’s fundraisers and community service projects and come up with great ideas.  Lion Barb handles our eyeglass requests and is very responsive assisting those in need of eye exams and glasses.
