WHILE Tuesday night was all about giving for the Lions Club of Scone, many of their key members also received recognition for their long service.

At the 58th Anniversary and Annual Installation of Officers dinner at Scone RSL Club pins for long service were awarded to Scone Lions Club members Geoffrey Pund (3 years) Ray Moore (5 years) Wally Kirilos (1 year) Maria Musumeci (22 years) John Musumeci (30 years) Trevor Power (40 years), Ian Morgan (51 years) and David Jones (46 years).

Committee members for the Lions Club of Scone for 2019/20 were inducted on the night with Maria Musumeci returning as president.

Other board members include John Musumeci, Ian Morgan, Geoffrey Pund, Ray Moore, Walley Kirilos and Zone Chairman Mick McCrone.

Scone Lions president Maria Musumeci thanked the community and the Lions members for all their hard work over the past twelve months.

"Again I will endeavour to continue to help the Lions members and we have to continue helping the community in town and elsewhere but our main objective, like a lot of other service clubs is membership," she said.

"Sometimes it is very difficult to retain. But we will try to do our best and we would like to help more if we can.

"So we are keeping our fingers and toes crossed we have a few extra people interested that may want to join our club which they would be welcome to."

Scone Lion Geoffrey Pund also received special recognition for his hard work helping local farmers over the past few months.

"Geoff has been assisting them with hay, water, food and gift cards," Mrs Musumeci said.

"Geoff would load a trailer full of food hampers and deliver them if they were unable to collect them, he also included the Lions Christmas Cakes in those hampers.

"So we are very grateful for his support of the community."
