The Canandaigua Lions were pleased to present Robert J. Uplinger awards to two of its members: Dr. Felix Tao, sponsored by Mary Sykes in 2010, and Dr. Geoff Hallstead, sponsored by PDG Dick Ernst in 2008.
Both have demonstrated their passion for community service and for helping others and are very deserving of this distinguished award.
Also recognized for their extraordinary efforts on multiple projects this past year were Cliff and Peggy Mooney, Canandaigua’s Co-Lions of the Year. Sponsored by Felix just two years ago, both jumped right into projects as new members without hesitation and continue to amaze us with their energy and enthusiasm.
The Club in general was presented with a Centennial Challenge award for 2017-18. Each member received a lapel pin in recognition of their diligence; a patch will be added to the Club’s banner.
