Lephon Small named 2014-15 Club Lion of the Year
Lephon Small has been awarded Club Lion of the Year by Florence Evenings Lions Clubs in recognition of his ongoing commitment to provide needed humanitarian service to citizens of the local community. This is a repeat of the award he received in Lions year 2011-2012. Lephon is a member of the Florence Evening Lions Club. He has been a Lion for 49 years, and has participated in various club projects including collecting eyeglasses and hearing aids, kits for the homeless, knapsacks for children who must find immediate alternative housing, to name a few.
Lephon is the Sight Conservation chairman and approves eye exams and eyeglasses if the requestor meets established criteria for assistance. He has held this position for a number of years and has improved quality of life for countless recipients. “It is very rewarding to help fulfill community needs, and it is a great honor to be presented with this award for a second time,” said Small. The Florence Evening Lions Club meets on the first and third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. at Lizard’s Thicket.
