At the Lord Baltimore Lions Club July meeting, President Janet Bauer recognized Paul Bolton as the club's 2018 Lion of the Year. An 18-year Lion, Bolton has been a member of the Lord Baltimore Lions for four years. He joined the Olney Lions Club in Maryland in 2000.
During his time with the Lord Baltimore Lions Club, he has served as a member of the board of directors and contributed to major LBLC club initiatives in all five service areas of vision, youth, diabetes awareness, hunger and the environment. Bolton has brought a number of community needs to the attention of the Lions, and he has been a club leader.
Bolton organized a community-wide Drug Use Disorder Awareness Discussion Panel March 12 to bring forth information on how the opioid crisis and drug abuse are impacting citizens. He invited speakers from all areas to articulate the current issues and to provide solutions on how to combat this modern-day scourge. The panel discussion was extremely engaging and the audience members had many questions. LBLC continues to support the efforts of Attack Addiction and others.
Bauer said, "Lion Paul is never a stranger when it comes to volunteering. He is available for service projects, fundraising efforts, and he works tirelessly toward addressing how we can further serve those less fortunate in our community."
Since the first LBLC Lion of the Year Award was given to Lion Norm Justice in 1990, 21 Lord Baltimore Lions have received this honor. For more information, go to www.lordbaltimorelionsclub.com or call Janet Bauer at 302-537-5175.
