On August 9, 2023, the Thurmont Lions Club recognized Lion Nancy Echard (pictured on right) as the recipient of the prestige award “Lion of the Year” for 2023. Lion Nancy has been a Lion member since June 2016, and during this short period of time she has taken on the planning and coordination of various club activities and service projects.

Lion Nancy has gone above and beyond serving as a Lion. She has served as coordinator of the Farmer’s Market table for the club working with Vickie Grinder throughout the summer. She promoted Lionism by letting the community know what we do as a “Lion” and encouraging new membership. Lion Nancy Echard works very hard at selling multiple raffle tickets, as well as supporting many of the Lions functions. Last year, she stepped up into a leadership position as 3rd Vice President. A huge thank you to Lion Nancy Echard for her dedication to Lionism and community service.

Lion Marci Veronie was recognized by President Susan Favorite as the recipient of the prestige “Lion of the Year” Award for the Thurmont Lions Club.

Lion Marci has been a Lion for only three years, but during this time, she has excelled above and beyond her duties and accomplishments. She is the 1st vice president for the club.

Lion Marci is organizing a “Wag and Wine” project to benefit the Leader Dog program to be held in April 2022. The program was canceled last year due to COVID-19. In addition, she has chaired and participated in many club projects and fundraisers, such as Easter Egg Fundraiser, Leadership Development, Main Street Cleanup, Lions Wear, Nominating Committee, Nursing Home Christmas, Veteran’s Wreath Laying, pit sandwich sales, and so many more. Lion Marci is responsible for the clubs social media accounts.  Congratulations, Lion Marci Veronie!
