On August 9, 2023, the Thurmont Lions Club awarded the Nancy Dutterer Service Award to Lion Lisa Riffle (pictured on left). This special award is given to a Lion member who doesn’t stop with their work with the Thurmont Lions Club; they also volunteer with other organizations in Thurmont and Frederick County.
Lion Lisa has been a Lion member since September 2015. She has given her selfless service and demonstrated what it means to be a Lion. She helps at Operation Second Chance (Heroes Ridge), which is a site for Veterans. The Veterans come for a week or two at a time (alone or with their family) at no cost to them. Heroes Ridge is definitely a “heaven” for the Veterans. Congratulations, Lion Lisa Riffle! The Thurmont Lions Club meets the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at St. Paul Lutheran Church on Church Street in Thurmont at 6:30 p.m. For more information, visit thurmontlionsclub.com or contact Lion Susan Favorite at [email protected]
