Members of the Ormond-by-the-Sea Lions Club have spent the last few days helping the Salvation Army, reaching membership milestones and hosting the club's annual Breakfast With Santa.

On Saturday, Dec. 8, nine lions helped ring the bell at the Salvation Army's stand outside the Ormond-by-the-Sea Publix. Each took two-hour shifts. The Lion Club thanks the local community for their generous support. 

Earlier that morning, the Lions Club hosted Santa and Mrs. Claus and firefighters for its annual breakfast. All children received a small gift, candy canes, coloring books and firefighter hats. 

The following members also received chevrons in recognition of their membership milestones this month.

  • Gwen Dean: 40-year Chevron
  • Les Walter: 20-year Chevron
  • John Thomas: 15-year Chevron
  • Gerry Bandola: 10-year Chevron
  • Bobbie Cheh: 10-year Chevron
