The Hartselle Lions Club is now an officially charted organization.

The club held a Charter Night program to culminate the organizational process that has been occurring for the past several months. The program was held at First United Methodist Church of Hartselle, Saturday evening, June 13.

The Hartselle club was sponsored by the Cullman Lions Club and has been under their guidance with the help of members Richard Gurley, Jim Howard and Ron Seybold. The Cullman club has donated a banner, gavel and bell; as well as made a cash donation of $500 to help the Hartselle club get grounded and moving forward.

The club was charted with 24 members who include Mac Beard, Nancy Case, Reggie Corum, Dr. Milan Dekich, Charles Gandy, Randy Garrison, Casey Gill, Dr. Chuck Gill, Lee Greene Jr., Lee Greene, Sr., Nancy Hardin, Susan Hines, Dr. Max Merrill, Dena Nagel, Shannon Parker, Tim Peebles, Dr. Susan Persall, Ron Puckett, Kerry Richardson, Kevin Richardson, Dr. Robbie Smith, Donna Townson, Dr. Vic Wilson and Juanita Womack.

These members were recognized at the program and those in attendance signed the official charter recognizing the club. They were also asked to affirm their commitment to the club.

The officers of the Hartselle club were also sworn in Saturday night, which included President Dr. Susan Persall, Vice President Randy Garrison, Treasurer Nance Case,

Secretary Dean Nagel and Membership Chairperson Susan Hines.

District Governor Jerry Caudle presided over the evening’s events as well as presented the charter to club President Dr. Susan Persall.

Incoming club members Linda Fox, Daryl Fox and Kel Roberts will be Centennial members of the club.

H. Jerome Thompson, past district governor for Lions and a member of the Moulton Lions club gave a brief history of Lions. Past international president J. Frank Moore III served as guest speaker and reminded all in attendance that no matter how small you may feel your contribution is, there is always someone in need of what you can give. He mentioned in his talk about the Lions Club working to aid in the vision needs of those who cannot help themselves.

Several members of the Cullman club and their spouses also attended the program in support of the new club. Roasted of Hartselle catered the meal.
