Lions' ladies awarded for service
THE Killarney Lions’ Ladies were presented with the Excellence In Service Award by 201Q1 district governor Lorraine McKenzie when she visited the club on Monday night.
District Governoe Lorraine said the award was to recognise the service to a club over the years and was she pleased to be able to present such award to the ladies after the Killarney members moved the award be presented to them to recognise the help they give at all Lions’ events.
The district governor addressed the members and asked the club to take up the challenge set by international president Wing-Kun Tam, which is to have one million trees planted by Lions Clubs around the world in his year as president.
She said that after listening to the club’s activities over the past week, the Killarney club was already under way.

Wwhether it’s in New Zealand earthquakes, the Japanese tsunami or flood-affected regions in Australia, Lions are there helping.
On finishing her address the ditrict governor, on behalf of the international president Wing-Kun Tam, thanked all Lions members for their service to their communities.
