New Berlin Lioness receive high honors

First of all, Lioness Pat Ziino was awarded a Birch-Sturm Fellowship, June 13, in recognition of her commitment to serving the people in our community and beyond. This Fellowship is named in honor of the only two presidents of Lions Clubs International from Wisconsin, Frank Birch and Clarence Sturm. Only seven other Lioness in New Berlin have received this honor.

Two days later, Lioness Betty Johnson received the highest International Melvin Jones Award during the combined Lions-Lioness Installation dinner at New Berlin’s Deer Creek Preserve golf course. She is the first member of the club to be named for this distinguished honor.

They both are long time members who have put in many hours of service to the community.  They have taken leadership in various projects, which include the Lioness annual Champagne Breakfasts, Fourth of July sandwich stand, and assisting the Lions with their Corn Roast at State Fair.

They also have been involved with a variety of projects including the New Berlin Library, the New Berlin Food Pantry, Waukesha  County shelters, and assisting the handicapped. 

Lioness Mary Tatera also was the recipient of the Melvin Jones Award to honor her deceased husband, Lion Al Tatera, for his commitment and service to Lionism.
