The San Pedro Club is not only the first service organization to come to San Pedro, but has also been the most successful and long-lasting organization. The club was founded in the year 1975 and was chartered with its board of directors duly installed on October 25, 1975.
In all fairness it would be nice to list the names of the founding members of the Lions Club in 1975 but due to the fear of missing out one single name, this columnist is asking the present secretary to kindly list the names in the comment box below. (appreciated) Let me say kudos to the most obvious names that come to mind, the men that built up the image of Lions in San Pedro and Belize since 1975.
Wilfredo Alamilla, Miguel Alamilla, Adolfo Ayuso Sr., Liborio Azueta Sr., Bernabe Badillo, Edwardo Brown, Norman Eiley, Allan Forman, Abel Guerrero, Ovidio Guerrero, Gilberto ‘Chico’ Gomez, Jose Gonzalez, Secun Gonzalez, Gil Gonzalez, George Kumul, John Lizama, Betito Marin, Aldo Marin, Arturo Mora, Reynaldo Muñoz, Gonzalo Muñoz, Luis Nuñez, Angel Nuñez, Felipe Paz Sr., Eiden Salazar Sr., Pedro Salazar, Reynaldo Squires, Fernando Trejo Sr., Santiago Vasquez, Francisco Verde.
