Verona Lions Seek Applicants For Service Awards

By on April 10, 2018

Verona LionsThe Verona Lions Club is seeking applications from students who are Verona residents who actively participated in valuable services to the community. The Lions may present up to three cash awards of $1,500 to graduating high school seniors who best exhibit service to their school, community, church, temple or non-profit charitable organization.

Our award criteria are not based on academic achievement or financial need but rather exclusively on volunteer service. Volunteerism and service to others is at the heart of our Lions Club credo: “We Serve”.

Applications should provide a clear description of services performed and when they took place to Diane Newman in the Guidance Department of Verona High School no later than May 4, 2018 or to the Verona Lions, PO Box 38, Verona, NJ 07044. All mailed applications must be postmarked no later than May 4, 2018.

The application should provide clearly worded explanations of the services rendered and to whom, when they occurred and benefits achieved. Please include a weekly time devoted to the volunteer efforts. It is important that the descriptions be detailed enough so that we can properly evaluate your service. If you name a school club or organization, please explain what it does.
