Wednesday, June 26, 2019, Chris Jones, outgoing 2018-2019 ELC President, presented Warren Bowron, incoming 2019-2020 1st Vice President, with the prestigious Melvin Jones Award.
Lions Clubs International recognizes outstanding individuals by bestowing on them an award that is named for its founder, Melvin Jones. This Fellowship Award is the highest form of recognition and embodies humanitarian ideas consistent with the nature and purpose of Lionism.
Jones and the members of ELC recognize the exemplary service Bowron has given to the Enterprise Lions Club and to the communities of Enterprise, Ft. Rucker, and the surrounding area, he is a model of what it means to be a Lion. Now, the challenge goes out to fellow Lions to follow the model set by the dedication of Lion Bowron, to live by our motto: "We Serve".
