Hence, the centennial of some clubs predates the centennial of Lions Clubs International. Anniversaries are based on the official records of Lions Clubs International. The recorded charter date at LCI sometimes differs from local club records. In Memoriam Past International Director Floyd Newberry Jr. Of Mt. Orab, Ohio, has died. A member of the Mt.
