Dunlap Lions

The Dunlap Lions Club met for its regular meeting on Aug. 1 at the Fairview Grange. The program for the evening was “Therapy Dogs.”

Lion Richard Litwiller and his wife Karen have trained their own therapy dogs, Lilly and Bella, and are members of Pet Partners. They have a list of qualifications that the dogs and their trainers must meet before they can be called a therapy dog. In their presentation they demonstrated how well the dogs are trained and how they listen to commands. Lilly and Bella enjoy going with Richard and Karen to make visits to nursing homes in the area.

Lion Judy Wells presented a plaque from Lions Club International, noting the Dunlap Lions Club as a “World Class Centennial Lions Club” for continual club growth. Each club member also received a certificate signed by the past four International Presidents with a gold seal.
