Forty Fort Lions Club Selects Lion Of The Year
The Forty Fort Lions Club celebrated its 43rd year as a member club in Lions Clubs International. This year’s Charter Night dinner was held at the Appletree Terrace at Newberry Estate, Dallas. Each year, the club president chooses a Lion of the Year. This year’s recipient was Lion Tom O’Connor. He has been a member since 1993, club president during the 2010-11 term year, and has been co-chairman of the McCullough Award since 1995. The James J. McCullough Award is a scholarship that has been presented to an outstanding area high school student every year for the past 24 years.
