Jim Katzaman was elected to serve as the new club secretary. The club’s vice president is Suzanne Larsen. The treasurer is Robert Bruce. Ron Fincham and Jason Welsh are membership chairmen. Jim Katzaman manages publicity and the newsletter. Brock Hutton is entertainment chairman. The Board of Directors includes remaining members.

Durkin said, “I look forward to leading various projects and continuing the Linthicum Lion Club’s commitment to serving the community.”

Since the club’s chartering in 1943, its members have worked on a variety of projects in the local community, such as eyeglass recycling, youth development, vision screening and highway clean-up. Proceeds from past fundraising events have gone to the Lions Association for Sight and Hearing, holiday food baskets for needy families and disaster relief in Japan and Ecuador. The club is currently supporting the  North County Emergency Outreach Network, He Opens Paths to Everyone and the Lions Vision Research Foundation.

The Linthicum Lions Club has 12 members and meets at 6:30 p.m. on the third Monday of the Month at Italia’s Corner Café in the Burwood Village Center. Lions clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
