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.
