Corowa Lion Lynn Fred­er­icks was awarded life mem­ber­ship of Lions In­ter­na­tional on Au­gust 21 for his tire­less vol­un­teer­ing to both Lions In­ter­na­tional and his lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Lynn’s life story reads like an ad­ver­tise­ment for char­ity work and vol­un­teer­ing.

He was born and bred in Corowa and has lived his mar­ried life with Pam in Corowa. You could say Corowa is ‘his town’.

Lynn has held many roles in many or­gan­i­sa­tions.

It all started when he joined Boy Scouts in 1968.

He joined the Lions Club of Corowa in 1995 and since then has been pres­i­dent of Lions Club of Corowa three times, sec­re­tary seven times, District Gover­nor in 2013/2014 and also served on the District’s Cabi­net as as­sis­tant sec­re­tary, district web­site and news­let­ter and chair­man of sev­eral Lions club foun­da­tions.

Lynn was awarded Ci­ti­zen of the Year and Achiev­ers Award of the new Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil in 2017.

The Lions Club of Corowa is proud to present him a life mem­ber­ship of Lions In­ter­na­tional.

The life mem­ber­ship was pre­sented at the Lions Club of Corowa din­ner meet­ing by a se­nior mem­ber of Lions In­ter­na­tional David Skinner OAM.

He is the Aus­tralian Lions Club Con­sti­tu­tion and By-laws Chair­man and mem­bers con­sider them­selves lucky to have such an im­por­tant man in the club.

Thank you David for do­ing such a good job pre­sent­ing the award on the night.

Lynn has been known to say: “That he is no dif­fer­ent to any of you out there, no dif­fer­ent at all.”

But we all know bet­ter, he is a spe­cial per­son.

Con­grat­u­la­tions Lynn.
