Boykins Lions install new officers

BOYKINS

The June meeting of Boykins Lions Club marked the end of the two-year tenure of Lion Linda Beatty as its president — the first female to serve that office in its 72-year history.

Lion Harrell Turner installed the new officers, all of whom were present for the ceremony. The new leaders are Rick Francis, president; Scott Biggers, first vice president; Cody Edwards, second vice president; Mike McManus, third vice president; Margie Graziano, secretary; and Linda Beatty, treasurer.

Bob Powell and Glen Edwards are first-year directors; Harrell Turner and David Phipps are second-year directors.

Lion Marc VanEck, the zone chairman, was a guest and spoke to the club about upcoming events.

The members discussed their upcoming fundraiser, the annual Steak Feast at Draper’s Pond, which will be on Wednesday, Sept. 4, from 4:30 til 7 p.m. Tickets were distributed to members to begin selling.
