Kathy Von Vreckin and President Erick Rumold
On June 2, Lion Kathy Von Vreckin was awarded the Englewood Lions Club Associate of the Year by President Erick Rumold. President Erick said that choosing Lion Kathy wasn’t hard. She is the most active associate in the club. An Associate Member is a Lion who is a full member in one club but is also active and supports another club. Lion Kathy’s home club is the North East PA Lions Club. Kathy joined the Lions Club in 2014 & enjoyed the sense of service she found in Lionism. Lion Kathy is a snowbird and decided she needed something to occupy her time while in Englewood. She joined the Englewood Lions Club as an associate member in May 2016 and the rest is history. Lion Kathy volunteers at the Englewood Community Clinic and can always be counted on to support Lions events - be it the Flea Market (kitchen duty), White Cane fund raising, collecting for Englewood Elementary School Christmas Fund, etc. Lion Kathy served as the club’s Tail Twister in the past. The Club Tail Twister is a person who promotes harmony, good fellowship and enthusiasm at club meetings through the imposition of “fines” on members. Lion Kathy happily collected the fines and turned them over to the Club Treasurer Bob Baran. Lion Kathy’s comment on being awarded the Associate of the Year award was “Thanks for letting me serve the community through the Englewood Lions Club.” She is glad she found the Lions Club and the Club is so blessed to have Lion Kathy Von Vreckin as one of its members.
