GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A very special and rare award was presented at a Grand Junction Lions Club meeting today, and everyone attending knew who it was going to....except the person who got it.
The Melvin Jones Fellowship Award is a rare honor. Out of the thousands of Lions Club members in Grand Junction, only 8 have received the award before today. Brian Mahoney was a past president of the Lions Club, and has been a member for nearly 50 years. He says the award came as a complete surprise.
In addition to the physical award, the club showed a presentation in honor of Brian's time with the Lions, and included well wishes from his friends and family.
