At a recent meeting of the Sycamore Lions Club, Jerry Brantner was presented with a Melvin Jones Fellowship Award. Brantner joined the Sycamore club in 1980 and last fall received his 37th year of Perfect Attendance Pin. In his tenure he has served in most board positions including president and has regularly served in committee positions. This award is named after Melvin Jones, who in 1917, started what is now Lions International. It is now the largest service organization in the world, with 46,000 clubs in every corner of the globe and 1.4 million members.
