On Saturday, January 26 the Melvin Jones Fellowship Awards Banquet was held at St. Clemon's Castle in Portland, CT.
This year's MJF Banquet included many Lions Clubs from all three Districts of Multiple-District 23 which includes District 23-A (Fairfield and New Haven Counties), District 23-B. (Litchfield and Hartford Counties), and District 23-C (Tolland, Windham, Middlesex, and New London counties).
It was amazing to see so many Lions receiving these awards.
What made this years Melvin Jones Awards Banquet so special was that three members of the Middletown Lions Club were honored.
