Gavan Rowan’s 20 Years of Service

Gavan has been a leader of the Ashwood-Mt Waverley club in every way possible over the 20 years since its formation. He was President for 13 years in two stints, Secretary for five years and Treasurer for two years. Gavan has been an ever-present participant in the club’s activities and, in addition, found time to serve on the Committee of Management of Waverley Lions Village. 

Gavan, pictured on the left, was recently presented with the Melvin Jones Fellow Award by fellow founding memeber and current club secretary, Keith Irwin.

About the Melvin Jones Fellowship

The Melvin Jones Fellowship is used to recognise outstanding Lions or members of the general public who have made a significant contribution to Lionism.

At the time of the death of Melvin Jones, the founder of Lions, International President Finis E Davis, said, “Once in every generation or era a man appears and in his fleeting hour upon this stage leaves an indelible imprint upon the lives of his fellow men, and upon generations yet to come. Such a man was Melvin Jones. All over the world today he is the symbol of man’s concern for his fellow man”

Approval for a Melvin Jones Fellowship is made by the Lions Clubs International Foundation Board,
