(CNS): Her selfless service to the community was one reason why Lion Belinda Blessitt Vincent received the “Lion of the Year” Award from the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens on Tuesday, 18 August 18.  Immediate Past President, Lion Ann Hunte, MJF commended Lion Belinda for her commitment to the organization. Hunte said that Belinda’s performance as Public Relations Chairperson in keeping the club visible in the community and members up to date with the publication of the monthly newsletter was second to none.

Vincent said she was honored to have been recognized for the prestigious award and thanked Hunte and the club for considering her for the award and she promised to continue to serve in lionism.

Vincent has been a member of LCTG for three years but prior to that was a Lion in St. Mary Lions Club (Jamaica) for many years.  During that time she has taken on various positions, and is currently the 2nd Vice President with responsibility for fundraising and public relations.

Her advice to other members is she takes from Lions International. “Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That’s because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.”
