On Sunday, May 1st, the San Pedro Lions Club swore in nine new members during their fundraiser event, “Follow the BINGO,” at Corona del Mar Hotel. As with the past venues, the ambiance at Corona del Mar was very supportive, with a large crowd showing up to have some fun and try to win some fabulous prizes. The BINGO game started shortly after 6:30PM, with San Pedro Lions Club president Everette Anderson explaining the game’s instructions. Supporters were also encouraged to purchase a ‘Follow the BINGO’ t-shirt with the assurance that it would entitle them to participate in the raffles held at the event. Every purchase helps the club to continue its work in the island community. Many patrons walked away with raffled prizes and winnings from the BINGO game throughout the evening.

Dr. Sol Yam, Chair for Zone 59, which the island club belongs to, was in attendance and delivered some remarks to the new incoming Lion members. She called upon them to pledge their commitment to the club and went over the history of the prestigious club known worldwide for its humanitarian work. Dr. Yam also let every new member know the privilege of serving their community through the Lions Club and the importance of passing on the tradition of serving and trying to impact everyone positively. Following Dr. Yam’s remarks, the different Lion members sponsoring the new individuals pinned them and presented them with a package and membership certificate. The new Lions include Yvette Mossiah, Nasair Anderson, Shaira Briceño, Elladira Garcia, Mailyn Donis, Rose Marie Linarez, Sergio Rivero, Monica Estrada, and Bertha Cunil.
