Lion Monty Montgomery Receives Humanitarian Recognition
Humanitarian service is the goal of all Lions. The Seeley Lake Lions Club was founded for the purpose of serving others and in so doing, make our world a better place. In 1973, the Association and Lions Club International Foundation recognized the need to establish a special commendation for a particular dimension of service. As a result, the Melvin Jones Fellowship was created. The Fellowship is not an award, rather it is a recognition given to humanitarians. The Fellowship is named as a tribute to the founder of Lions Club International, Melvin Jones. Designated as the Lions Club International Foundation's highest honor, the Fellowship symbolizes those attributes characteristic of individuals who are dedicated to humanitarian service, attributes such as generosity, compassion, and concern for others.
On February 22, 2001, the Seeley Lake Lions Club was honored to have one of its members recognized. Lion Howard (Monty) Montgomery was presented with a personally inscribed wall plaque and a lapel pin that identifies him as a Melvin Jones Fellow. In addition, his name will be displayed on a computerized plaque in the Lions Club International Foundation Room at International Headquarters.
Featured speaker at the February 22 meeting was District Governor Lion Dick Heida. Governor Lion Heida made the Melvin Jones Fellow presentation and inducted new members Tim Downey and Jim Whalen into the Seeley Lake Lions Club.
