Lyons Citizen of the Year Tickets on Sale Now
The Lyons Lions Club has received nominations for the Lyons Citizen of the Year award and has officially begun selling tickets to the event. The Lyons Citizen of the Year event will occur Thursday, September 22, at 6:30 p.m. at the Calloway Community Center at Partin Park. Lyons Lions Club Service Chairman Joseph Akins said this year’s event will focus more on the honoree, rather than also trying to entertain the audience. “Last year, we had some entertainment performances before the award, but this year, we really wanted to focus on the community and the honoree,” he explained.
According to Akins, the event will feature a meal and small entertainment portion with a saxophonist but will primarily discuss this year’s award recipient and past recipients of the award. The Oaks Baptist Church Pastor Christian Burton will emcee the event and will lead attendees through a night of celebrating excellence within the community.
Ticket sales are going on now and will end Monday, September 12. Tickets must be purchased in advance and can be purchased for $25 each at the Lyons City Hall or through a Lyons Lions Club member.
