CUMMING, Ga. — The Forsyth County Lions Club held its annual holiday banquet on Dec. 5 at Marlow’s Tavern in Cumming to celebrate its accomplishments and recognize three local residents for receiving a prestigious international humanitarian award.
On the recommendation from the Lions Club, Dr. Kevin Peterson, Steve Williams and Dave Brightman were recognized by Lions Clubs International Foundation as Melvin Jones Fellows for their outstanding contributions to the Lions Club’s community service efforts.
Members in attendance also brought non-perishable food items to be donated to local food pantries and used prescription eyeglasses to be donated to the Georgia Lions Lighthouse for overseas missions.
Since 1961, the Forsyth County Lions Club has provided sight, hearing and family services to low-income uninsured local residents.
Meetings are held every first and third Tuesdays at 7 p.m. at the Golden Corral on Market Place Boulevard in Cumming and guests are always welcome.
