The Caroline Lions Club held its annual installation ceremony on Sunday, May 10, at its Lions Den in Caroline with District Governor Margaret Bouchard officiating. One of its founding members, Orest Luchka, and wife Jeanne, who retired from the community last fall and moved north to be closer to family, returned to be recognized for 41 years of service to the club. And Orest decided to continue his membership, becoming a director on the club's governing board.

Members not present at the ceremony were Nazem Kamaleddine (Lion Tamer), Jim Kline and John Reid. A catered meal was enjoyed by all present, including visiting Lions, well wishers and friends of the club.

Recognized for long service to the Caroline's Lions Club - Orest Luchka and wife Jeanne were given a plaque by Lions Ron and Greg.
