We celebrated our 75th anniversary on July 24th, 2013 at Bethesda Presbyterian Church in Aberdeen, NC. The event was held jointly with Mira Foundation as a fundraiser for both organizations and had over 70 people in attendance. It was catered for free by Outback Steakhouse of Aberdeen. The entertainment was provided by Samantha Duerring, a VIP recipient of a guide dog, Gale, from MIRA, who performed two songs beautifully for the audience. A proclamation was read by Aberdeen councilman Walter Wright proclaiming this date Aberdeen Lions Day. Past International President Sid Scruggs III gave the keynote address on what it means to really be a Lion.
