The mission statement of Lions Clubs International and the Jefferson County Lions Club is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions Clubs.
Local resident and longtime Lions Club member June Campbell is just what Lions are all about. She gives to others with no thought of return; working beside her fellow Lions whenever there is a need for those less fortunate. Her hard work and compassion serve as an example to the Lions, her community and the world around her.
Lion Campbell has been a member of the Jefferson County Lions Club for just a short time, transferring from the Tallahassee Lions Club after 19+ years of dedicated service.
She has received several awards and special recognition from Lions Clubs International, her district and her local clubs through her years of service that include: the Anchor Award, Melvin Jones Fellow Award, Progressive Melvin Jones Award (life member), Mel Carver Award for Florida Lions Camp, Crusader Award, Dick Folson Award, Lion of the Year Award, Florida Lion Conklin Center (life member) and the Grand Lion Award.
Lion Campbell received several certificates of appreciation for her committee involvement with Diabetes, Sight and Hearing from Lions Clubs International and many pins and ribbons for her accomplishments in Lions, including sponsoring a Branch Club in Lloyd and sponsoring 10 new Lions for the Jefferson County Lions Club.
She will receive her 20-year recognition in October.
“I owe my accomplishments to my friend and Lion Sponsor Anne Davis,” notes Lion Campbell.
“It is my honor, as your president, to present you the International President's Award for your outstanding service to Lions Clubs International,” says International President Gudrun Yngvadottir. “Along with this award I would like to express my personal gratitude for your efforts and accomplishments. I know that you will continue to enrich the lives of your fellow club members and others and provide even greater humanitarian service, as we begin our next century of service.”
Lions Clubs International recently celebrated 100 years of community service.
