Andy Weiss receives Melvin Jones Fellowship

On Thursday, June 21, 2007, Andy Weiss received the Melvin Jones Fellowship in recognition of his commitment to humanitarian work.

This fellowship is the foundation's highest honor and represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion, and concern for the less fortunate.

Melvin Jones Fellows receive a lapel pin and a personalized wall plaque in honor of their commitment to helping others.

Andy has done an outstanding job serving as president for the Horsham Lions for the past three years. We congratulate him in this important recognition of his dedication to our community.

Horsham Day Fundraiser

Another Horsham Day has come and gone! The Horsham Lions sold roast pork sandwiches, home made ice cream, bottled water, and canned sodas as a fundraiser during Horsham Day. The weather was hot, which helped us sell the drinks and ice cream faster than ever before. Whereas last year we were giving away left over pork and ice cream, this year we sold out long before the fireworks began.

Many thanks to the Lions and friends who came to help out: John Bill, Joe Nemath, Carlo Logiovine, Elena Logiovine, Tara Smith, Ted Truver, Shirley Truver, Fred Stewart, Phil Amoa, and Lauren Kraske. Special thanks go again to Lion Sam Braccia for donating our roast pig, and to Ivan Stoltzfus for coming all the way from Lancaster to make our ice cream.

Thanks also go to Williamson's restaurant for donating ice, and to Lion Larry Glemser for the use of his pickup truck.

Your efforts helped us raise money that will be used throughout the year to help the vision and hearing impaired in our community!
