Lions Club Steak Supper

Group honors members during annual get-together Monday
The Ennis Noon Lions Club enjoyed some good food, some good times and recognized some important people during their annual Family Steak Supper held at Baylor Baptist Church Monday night.
This year’s event had a record turnout of over 120 attendees who came together to highlight some accomplishments of the club’s past year.
Ennis Mayor Russell Thomas recognized Lion’s Club member Wallace Roberts for his more than 40 years of service to the organization. In addition to serving as District 2X-1 Governor last year, Roberts has also served as president of the Ennis club for two terms and has filled numerous other roles over the past four decades. Thomas honored Roberts with a proclamation naming August 25, 2008 as Wallace Roberts Day.
Roberts not only received honors Monday night, he presented some to other club members as well. Roberts recognized current club president Ben Fry with the Melvin Jones Fellowship, the highest honor bestowed by the Lions Club International Foundation. The award is named after the founder of Lions Club International and represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion and concern for the less fortunate.
Also honored during the steak supper were three new Texas Lions Camp lifetime members for their help at the Lions Camp in Kerrville. Those receiving lifetime memberships for their work this year at the facility for disabled children were Rolene Cox, Bill Cox and Betty Taylor.
Several members were recognized with attendance awards for 90 percent attendance or better at the club’s weekly meetings during the last year. Those receiving attendance awards were Tom Abram, Jack Armstrong, Larry Candy, Raymond Fallen, James Haberman, Les Harris, Carol Honza, Charlie Honza, David Howard, Bill Lewis, Ross Lewis, Becky Lucas, Wallace Roberts, Bill Smith, Jerry Smith, Miles Strunc, Bob Taylor and Elmo Wade. Club member Brandi Anthony also got special recognition for being the first active Tail Twister to give birth to a beautiful baby girl during her tenure.
Past president Kevin Six was presented with a pin and plaque in recognition of his service to the club over the 2007-2008 year. During Six’s term as president, the club added 29 new members who were sponsored by 21 existing members.
The sponsors and their new members recognized during the steak supper were: Bob Taylor – Betty Taylor and Mary Helen Gentry; Wallace Roberts – Robert Brazier and Ron Mraz; Dia Catalini – Lacy Hightower; Wayne Turner – Sandra Turner, Carol Spellman and Marylyn Wylie; Steve Howerton – Bryan Ozymy; Carol Honza – Jerry Honza, Jenny Vidrine and Joe Vidrine; Kevin Six – Angie Six; Alan Clark – Gary Fincher and Meggan Clark; Bill Dodson – Nancy Dodson; Brandi Anthony – David Anthony; Miles Strunc – David Averitt and Ruth Strunc; Julie Pierce – Lynn Webster; Eddie Dunn – Henry Martinez; Bill Smith – Jeannette Patak; Evelyn Jacobson – Paul Jacobson; Rick Hoffman – Nancy Hoffman; Tom Abram – David Anderson; Bill Cox – Rolene Cox; Paul Neal – Josie Holdridge; Amy Womack – Diego Garcia; and Charles Clark – Laure Clark.
