Lion Barry Buck got to celebrate his June birthday and kicked in a buck in memory of Lion Randy Swaim, whose birthday was also in June.  Lion Barry shared the moment many times with our deceased friend and great Lion Randy.

Lion President Doug shares emotional farewell remarks as president and recalled the many accomplishments of the past year, including a very memorable 90th Anniversary celebration at last summer's International Festival with an award winning float, the Ohio School for the Blind Marching Band and a 90th anniversary Monarch night with a portrayal of Helen Keller by Lion Jackie Christensen of the Canal Winchester Lions in Franklin County.  It was a great year, saddened only by the loss of three dedicated Lions:  Paul Trimble, Vern Brown and Harold Lee.  CONGRATULATIONS AND THANKS TO LION DOUG KAYLE FOR THE GREAT LEADERSHIP AND VISION HE PROVIDED THE LORAIN LIONS THIS PAST YEAR--THERE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN A BETTER PERSON TO LEAD US DURING OUR 90TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR!!!
