Honored guests include veterans, and the OTOW Chorus will perform a medley of patriotic songs. Chaplain Robert Benson will offer the invocation and the benediction, and the West Port High School R.O.T.C. will give both the Presentation and the Retirement of the Colors. Retired Lieutenant Colonel Sharon Murray is the guest speaker. The symbolic placement of the Memorial Wreath, followed by the benediction will conclude the ceremony.
Residents of On Top of the World Communities as well as those outside OTOW are encouraged to participate in this event.
Lions clubs in both Florida and the Bahamas sponsor unknown thousands of local projects, from vision screenings, to little league teams & parks, to scholarships, to testing for glaucoma & diabetes, to hearing tesiing & aids, to guide dogs for the visually impaired & blind, to hearing dogs for those with hearing imparities, to building a ramp at a home where one is needed, to providing clothing for the homeless, & the list goes on and on as long as there is a need.
Lions clubs are not limited in what they can do— it all depends on the local club and their abilities and membership.
And the greatest part of being a member of the world's largest community service organization is that all funds received from the public are retumed to the public through community projects and service. Never are any of the funds used for the purpose of the clubs' administrative needs, as that is accomplished by the members through membership fees.
