Chester Lions Club:

On  March 18, 2010, the Chester Lions Club will be host to area residents who, over the years, have contributed incalculable hours of service to the community.  The club will honor these selfless individuals who, through their efforts, have improved the quality of life for all of us.


The Melvin Jones fellowship, the highest honor in Lionism, will be presented to:  Bill Renzetti, Marie Eberhardt and Walter Markey who were instrumental in bringing Chester Area Senior Housing (CASH) to fruition;

Eileen Griffith and Carmela Lunt who initiated Community Hope, an organization that provides residential programs for young adults, homeless veterans and individuals with mental illness in New Jersey;

Sandra Smith, a long time member of the Chester First Aid Squad, former citizen of the year and founder of the Virginia Truax Scholarship;

Monsignor Raymond Lopatesky, active in numerous endeavors including administrator of Nazareth Village for retired priests, Chaplin for the Long Valley Police and First Aid Squads and  counselor for distressed families, the police and the FBI.


Melvin Jones, the founder of Lionism, was dedicated to the betterment of the human condition.  In keeping with that theme, the Chester Lions Club has honored these individuals who have made significant contributions to that end.


Having recently celebrated its 40th anniversary, the Chester Lions Club has a strong relationship to the Chester and Long Valley communities.  Its members are leaders in their respective neighborhoods.  They will continue to follow the motto “We Serve” and will, to the best of their ability, help those most vulnerable.
