Tom Levi assumes duties as new Lions Club president

By Tom Hawkins

Tom Levi assumed duties last week as the new president of the Groesbeck Lions Club for the new Lions Club year which began on July 1, and will end June 30, 2018. Levi and other new officers of the club had been previously installed.

Several presentations were made at the club’s meeting on Wednesday, July 5th.

Shawn Harkin is the club’s immediate past president, and he was presented a past president’s plaque by Levi during the meeting.

Harkin expressed his appreciation to the club members and his fellow officers for their hard work and cooperation during the past year.

Harkin presented the Lion of the Year Award for 2016-2017 to Ashley Foy. Foy is the club’s Tail Twister and has been active in many of the Club’s activities. In being named Lion of the Year, Foy was presented a life membership to the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville, Texas, by the Groesbeck Lions Club.

Lance Watkins was installed as a new member of the Groesbeck Lions Club and in-turn a member of the Texas Lions and Lions Clubs International. Lion John Bush is his sponsor.
