The San Pedro Town Lions Club held a special ceremony and dinner/dance to celebrate their 38th anniversary on Saturday October 19th. The event had the participation of Lion members from the District B-8 Mexico as well as other local dignitaries.

In delivering the keynote remarks on the occasion of the anniversary, President of the San Pedro Town Lions Club, Rigoberto Kumul said that for the past 38 years, the local club has lived up to the Lions’ Motto “We Serve.” “Today our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world’s largest service club organization. We are proud that, for the past 38 years, The San Pedro Lions Club has been one of the clubs that have put the name of Lions high….When this club was established in October of 1975, I am sure that our chartered members would not believe they would be here today looking back 38 years later, and see how much dedication and hard work went into making this club a success. These legends that started the club have left behind a good legacy,” said Kumul. He pointed out that one of the biggest accomplishments of the local club was to spearhead the construction of the only public health facility on the Island, the Dr Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Poly-Clinic II (also referred to as the Lions Poly-Clinic).

“But we cannot allow the legacy of our chartered members to die. We must keep moving forward as a club and as Lion members. It is rewarding and interesting to be a part of a team that volunteers, lead projects, meet as a group and also have fun – we do all this and more as a Lion member. I want to remind you that we are not here for self-gain, or to receive recognitions. We are here to improve our community and other communities around the world,” concluded Kumul.
