The Lions Club of Tropical Gardens was the recipient of both regional and district awards recently.
The awards were given at the 28th Multiple District Convention held in St. Lucia.
Accepting the awards President Cheryl Bell indicated her pleasure with members for their commitment and unity.
Region 4, which comprises clubs in the Cayman Islands and portions of Jamaica, received the Public Relations and Visibility Award.
Norma McField was named secretary of the region. Cheryl Bell received first runner-up to club president of the region.
The club’s breast cancer program was singled out in the region for recognition in the area of sustainable projects and named first runner-up.
At the district level, Tropical Gardens Lions received the prestigious awards Club of the Year and Secretary of the Year.
John Ebanks, Governor of District 60B, which encompasses much of the Caribbean, indicated his extreme pleasure with the functioning of the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens, particularly the Club’s high level of impact in the area of breast cancer awareness.
District Activities Chairperson Denyse Forrest commended Ms McField for her excellence in reporting to the district. ‘Her concise but informative reports could certainly be used as models.’
