The Coventry Lions Club held its yearly Christmas Dinner December 15th. In addition to the usual merriment that accompanies a Christmas dinner; two Lions were surprised with a presentation of the Melvin Jones Fellowship. 


Pictured above holding their plaques are MJF honorees Ray Bentley and Frank Conforti.

They are flanked by presenters John Lapic and Barry Bentley

Created in 1973, the fellowship is named for the founder of Lions Clubs International, Melvin Jones. The fellowship is the foundation's highest honor and represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion, and concern for the less fortunate.

 Our club uses Lions International’s Melvin Jones Fellowship program to recognize the outstanding work and commitment of club members to Lionism’s principles of service to the community, and to the health and well-being of our Lions Club. Ray Bentley and Frank Conforti, the recipients of the MJF are well known in the club for upholding the standard of excellence that the club hopes all members can attain.

Lions Come to Aide of Injured Senior Citizen

90 Year old John Runyan of East Coventry took a spill on the wet grass and tumbled down the hill. The result of the fall was a dislocated shoulder and fractured humerus.

Besides having to deal with this injury, John needed a way to help climb the steps from his basement/garage to his living area. A call was made to the Lions, and following the motto "We Serve", a new hand rail was installed the same day.

Fourth Annual Co-Ed Relays Run at Wildcat Stadium

The fourth annual Coventry Lions Club Co-Ed  Relay Invitational took place Tuesday, May 25th.  Over 150 athletes competed in sixteen different relay races and events.

The Co-Ed Relays is a rarity among Invitational Meets in that it allows male and female competitors to participate together, with one another, instead of the traditional separate events for boys and girls.  In the field events, a boy and a girl compete and add their scores together to determine place finishes.  In track events, two boys and two girls combine to create the traditional four person relay.  There is also a non-traditional relay where six competitors run 100 meters each in a crescendo relay.  Each weight class is represented by a boy and girl runner, and the race progresses with each weight class getting larger (read upper weight class) from 90 lb. to 120 lb.
