The Nancy Dutterer Service Award is awarded to a Lion member who doesn’t stop with their work with the Thurmont Lions Club. They assist and volunteer with other organizations in Thurmont, Frederick County, and beyond, a Lion who emulates their philosophy of giving of one’s self. The award was presented to Lion Joyce Anthony.

She not only works tirelessly for the Thurmont Lions Club as secretary and on many committees, she has prepared the newsletter for the Thurmont Lions Club for more than 11 years. She is the recipient of two Progressive Melvin Jones awards.
