In 1982, Gettysburg Lion Robert Zellner spearheaded the creation of the Pennsylvania Lions All-State Band. He has been the band’s director ever since. Over the years the band has performed at state and international conventions as well as other events in places such as Multiple District 300 Taiwan, Hawaii and Colorado. Windsor Locks Lions Club President John Boscarino aced the 197-yard second hole, a par three, in the annual President’s Golf Tournament in Connecticut, winning the $10,000 prize. A portion of the funds raised at the tournament went toward reading programs at local schools. Boscarino has promised to fund the insurance cost for next year’s tournament. In Pennsylvania, the American Red Cross held a blood drive in honor of Winchester Host Lion Charles Zuckerman to celebrate the 38 gallons of blood he has donated in his lifetime. Zuckerman, 88, gave blood for the first time in 1949 at a Lions’ bloodmobile in Winchester. The Red Cross calculates that one pint can save three lives, meaning Zuckerman has potentially saved 912 lives. Although falling just short of his goal of giving 40 gallons due to a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis, he is doing his part to encourage others to donate. Zuckerman has been a Lion for 60 years. The Smithfield Lions Club in Virginia inducted its youngest members ever, Rachel Letchworth, 19, and Sean Catley, 18. Both were charter members of the Smithfield High School Leo Club.
