Man receives Lions Club International award.
The Shartlesville Lions Club had more than covered dishes and picnic fare when the club held its summer picnic. They had a surprise for their just- retired club president Bob Argot, courtesy of a letter from Lions Clubs International’s president for the 2016- 2017 Lions year, Chancellor Bob Corlew.
Co- secretary Lion Patti Cahill read that letter after co- secretary Shirley Berger called for members’ attention before the gathering dispersed.
“It is with the great pleasure that I present to you the Senior Master Key and Medallion for sponsoring 25 members during your career as a Lion,” said Corlew in his letter, with Lion Cahill adding, “in Lion Bob’s two home areas.”
PDG Argot was surprised and felt a certain amount of gratification that he had been able to have that many individuals to become a Lion. Those new Lions included adding three initial women members to his club in Monroe County, as well as members to the Shartlesville Lions Club here in District 14- P. But, it does not include the members of a club Lion Argot started during his tenure as District Governor of District 14- U, the Bushkill-Smithfield Lions Club.
Bob Argot is all smiles after having received his international Lions award from Shartlesville Lions Club co- secretary Patti Cahill.
