Liberty Lion Kenneth Herron names Melvin Jones Fellow
(Reprinted from The Vindicator)
The Liberty Lions Club installed officers and directors for 2014-2015 Monday evening June 30 at Liberty Center with a capacity crowd in attendance.
Incoming 2nd Vice Governor for District S2S (from Houston Heights Lions Club) officiated over the ceremony. District Governor Chris Moorman was not present, as he is traveling to Canada for the Lions International Convention.
Roth spoke about the Lions motto "We Serve." He said service includes service to fellow Lions. He said, "As you take on your responsibilities, you are serving each other. ... You are about to embark on a new event for this committee. Lion Chris Moorman is the first district governor from the Liberty Club. He is very cautious and deliberate in his decision-making. I am looking forward to working with him throughout the year."
The first award of the evening was a Melvin Jones Award presented to Lion Kenneth Herron for his contributions, dedication and tireless efforts in the Lions flag program. Liberty Lions placed American flags in front of homes and business six times per year for a subscription fee of $35 per year. Lion Herron was flag program chair in 2013-2014.

Contributions can be made by individuals (including non-Lions), clubs or districts. Donations may be in one sum, or in installments of a minimum of $100 over a five-year period. Melvin Jones Fellows receive an attractive lapel pin, a plaque and a congratulatory letter.
