Congratulations to Maureen Murphy Wojnar!

Maureen is the proud recipient of the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award which was presented to her this past weekend at the 2024 Lions Club International Mid-Winter Convention.

Lions Clubs International recognizes outstanding individuals by bestowing on them an award that is named for its founder, Melvin Jones. This Fellowship Award is the highest form of recognition and embodies humanitarian ideas consistent with the nature and purpose of “Lionism”. The recipient of this award becomes a model because of the exemplary service to their club and the community for which it serves.  

Previous Melvin Jones Fellowship Award recipients meet each year to discuss potential award recipients. An award is not granted each year. It is instead granted only if there is a Lion who earned it. This decision is made by previous award recipients only. The Officers, Board, and other Lions do not weigh in on this decision. 

Maureen, a Grafton resident, currently holds the position of SVP, Information Systems at Homefield Credit Union.
