Carol Rhines received the Lions Club Tennessee’s District 12-O ‘Lion of the Decade’ award at the Lions Club State Convention last week. This prestigious award honors her for 10 years of outstanding service and leadership as an active member of the Dayton Lions Club and the Tennessee Lions Multiple Districts.
Rhines has served as both President of the Dayton Lions Club, as Governor of the Lions District 12-O and as Tennessee Lions Council Chairman. Rhines also received The Distinguished Leadership Medal from the international president, Wayne Madden.
Past District Governor from Dayton Lions Club, Marvin Keener, was also honored at the Lions State Convention with the Distinguished Service Medal from the International Lions President for his sustained service in assisting Lions Clubs in serving their communities.
Both Rhine’s and Keener’s passion is ultimately to serve their community by helping to screen children’s eyes to find and treat eye problems, to raise funds to buy eyeglasses and provide services for the blind for those in Rhea County who cannot afford them and to make people aware of how to prevent diabetes by health fair participations and screenings.
The Dayton Lions Club also received a first-place award for small clubs in the district competition.
