At the regular meeting of the Blanco Lions Club on Thursday, August 1, Donald Miller, Past President of the Leos Club, was presented with the Texas Leo Council’s award for Outstanding District 2S3 Leo of the Year.
The award is given to Leos who show “excellent achievement in leadership and service”. He was presented with a trophy, medal and certificate by Leo Club Sponsor Kim Thompson.
Donald was a member of the Leos Club all four year of high school and was also one of four recipients of the Lions Club Scholarships.
Also present was Dale Hardy of the Spangle Dangle Celebration. Hardy, who was a Past President of another Lions Club, presented a check to President Tom Davidson. The check, totalling over $700, was for the amount earned at the entrance gate that the Lions Club manned during the Spangle Dangle event.
The Lions Club has manned a gate at the event for three years. Hardy told the club that “this was the best year we’ve had” and spoke of plans for growing the event even more next year.
