Lions welcome new member Rockford Lion Jan Strauss received a standing ovation as she was named Lion of the Year during the club’s July 25 annual picnic. Awarded for outstanding service to the Rockford Lions Club and the community, Strauss earned this recognition for her highly successful year as club president in building a better, stronger club. To cap off the club’s strong membership growth, Lion Rose Scheidel was inducted, with her husband John doing the honors of slipping on her new Lion vest. The new Lion year started Thursday, Aug. 27, with a visit to Camp Tuhsmeheta, located on Lincoln Lake Road. This year-round camp for the blind and vision-impaired works to build confidence in the camper’s skills to function successfully in our sighted world.
