Hope Lions Club Presents Edwin Dalstrom Award

The Hope Lions Club presented the “Edwin Dalstrom” award to a long-time member of the club recently.  Club Secretary Bill Freeman made the presentation. The award is the highest award a club may present in conjunction with Mid-South Sight and Hearing Services in Memphis, a Lions affiliated facility which has served many from our area.  Preston joined the club about 15 years ago.  Due to his promotional skills he has been able to obtain hundreds of trips to such places as Branson and Nashville, TN to be sold at the annual Lions Christmas auction.  Preston’s tireless efforts have resulted in the Lion’s auction finding a new and significant revenue stream for the auction.  His actions have allowed the club to raise thousands of dollars which are in turn used in local community projects.  Jeff Cook also received the Edwin Dalstrom award recently as well.
