As part of Lions Clubs’ celebration of serving their communities for 100 years, Lions Clubs International is excited to share a new membership awards program that rewards Lions for helping grow the association through inviting new members and organising new clubs.

The award is presented to a Lions club member who sponsored a Lion or helped organise a new club that remains active for three years and one day.

Boggabri Lions Club president, Richard Gillham presented Mr Boxsell with his award.

“I don’t really know what I did that was so special,” Mr Boxsell said.

“I have worked constantly for 40 years for the club and have introduced five members over the years,” he said.

“The last one I introduced was about three years ago and he has turned out pretty good.”
