    Posted on June 29th, 2014 Ocoee Lions Club 2 comments

    20140623_205512An installation ceremony was held at the Ocoee Lions Clubhouse on Taylor Street for incoming officers of the Club. David Wheeler was reelected for a second term as the Club President. Wheeler has been an active member of the Ocoee Lions Club for the past decade.

    Cathy Sills was reelected to serve as Club Administrative Secretary. The Club’s Vice-President will be Mike Paulin. District Governor Al Becker presided over the ceremony.

    Wheeler, summarizing the Club’s active past year, noted a long list of projects and fundraisers, including holding its first poker tournament fundraiser, organizing the Ocoee Christmas parade, delivering presents to Health Central Hospital on Christmas Day, celebrating its 65th anniversary Charter Night, holding its 10th annual golf tournament, running the Ocoee farmers’ market, collecting eyeglasses, and participating in the Ocoee Spring Fling, among many others. Wheeler said we’ll be doing all this again in the next year. The Club also saw the unfortunate passings of long-time members Josh Merritt and Marvin Sanders. The Club brought in four new members in the past year, and is transferring in another from Jamaica.

    The Ocoee Lions Club has 35 members and meets on alternative Monday evenings at the Ocoee Lions Clubhouse.
