We've had some beautiful cool weather, but now the heat of August has returned. But not to worry. This time next week, August will be history, and September will be here. I don't know what the weather conditions will be, but then, neither do the ones who forecast it every day.
Monday, Aug. 17, the Chapel Hill Lions Club members and families met for the annual picnic at Henry Horton Park recreation center. The food was delicious, and the fellowship was wonderful, as usual. The report of the most successful Tractor Pull was given by Chris Gilbert.
The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Melvin Jones Fellow Award, the highest award given by the Lions Club to a fellow member. Loyalty to the club is recognized, as well as support of his/her church, our local schools and community. There are so many ways to show others in our community that you live by the Lions' motto, "We Serve." This year Lion Ronnie Curtis was the recepient of this award. Ronnie is definitely deserving of this honor and expresses his loyalty to Chapel Hill and Marshall County every day.
