Sheree Vora, district governor for NY Lions District 20-Y, delivered a presentation on her goals for the district and installed Rebecca Devendorf as a member of the Fulton Lions Club at the club’s December meeting.

Vora also recognized the Fulton club for their 70th anniversary this year.

In her presentation, Vora stressed the value of club visibility in the community and the positive impact it can have on recruiting new members. “If your club isn’t seen, how is anyone going to find you?,” she said. Vora illustrated her point with the example of how her home club in Lowville transformed a parcel of long-vacant downtown property into a treasured community centerpiece. She also shared information on her Childhood Cancer Project to renovate one of the inpatient activities rooms at Upstate University’s Golisano Children’s Hospital. The Fulton Club donated $1,000 toward the project.

Rebecca Devendorf, sponsored by her husband, Patrick Devendorf, was inducted by Vora as the newest member of the Fulton club.

The Fulton Lions Club, sponsors of the September Charby’s Duck Derby, Lions Loot and The Mane Event Comedy Night, provides financial assistance for those in need of eyeglasses, eye exams, and hearing aids to residents in the Greater Fulton area.
