President’s Service Blog: Berkeley, California
Recently, I was humbled to present the first Lions Recognition Award to Lion Bruce Dixon of the Albany Lions Club in Berkeley, California. We’ve created this new award to acknowledge Lions who distinguish themselves in a disaster relief effort, lifesaving endeavor or service activity.
This past August, Bruce saved the lives of two young women just before their car burst into flames. Bruce exemplifies heroism – he was just another motorist who witnessed the accident that put their young lives in danger. He pulled the two stunned and bleeding girls from the wreckage in an act that saved their lives.
I happened to hear about this story and nominated Bruce for this new award. I personally presented the award to Bruce during a dinner hosted by the Lions of 4 C3. During the evening, I was pleased to meet with the 85 Lions that came out to support him.
