The installation, in charge of the immediate past president, John Stevens, was coupled with installation of officers of the Lady Lions, an auxiliary organization. Presentations were made to a number of persons, including outgoing officers and those who had a 100 percent attendance record for the year, and a fine program of entertainment was enjoyed. Pictured above are (seated, left to right): Eric Spearman, treasurer; Ben Johnson, first vice-president; Frank Kondal, president; Dave Winter, past president; Francis Doan, re-elected secretary. (Standing, left to right): Harold (Bud) Harper, director; Carl Custance, second vice-president; John Ashton, tail twister; Art Wilson, director; Dr. Ray Knight, Lion Tamer; Graham Snelgrove, third vice-president. Absent from the picture are Reg Furlong and Hal Calder, one-year directors.” 1_2327: “Retiring president honored—Dave Winter, outgoing president of the St. Thomas Lions Club, has the unique record of 21 consecutive years of 100 percent attendance at club meetings. This fact, coupled with his work as president during the past 12 months was recognized at the installation night of the club’s new officers at the Stork Club, at Port Stanley, Monday, when he not only received the regular 100 percent attendance pin, but was presented with a special stand holding the flags of 29 nations where Lions Club activities are carried on, with a membership of 400,000. He is seen in the above picture receiving the momento from Harold Corbett (right). The holder is engraved with the Lions crest. During the evening Mrs. Winter was presented with a bouquet of flowers from the Lions Club through Graham Snelgrove, who also made a similar presentation to Mrs. Kondal, wife of the incoming president. Mrs. Art Galloway, who began her second year as president of the Lady Lions, was presented with flowers and in turn she presented Mr. Winter with a cheque from her group for Lions Club work.”
