170228_LionsDinner_0006At the February 28th combined Dinner & Business Meeting of the Concord Lions Club, the Club welcomed our newest member, Lion Ray Phillips. We were honored to have District Governor Joan Parcewski perform the induction ceremony. Welcome, Lion Ray!

Lions Ray will not be able to help out with our Pancake Breakfast on Patriots’ Day because he will be running in the Boston Marathon. He has been a member of the Children’s Hospital Marathon Team since the 2000 Boston Marathon¬†when he first teamed up with his Patient Partner Andy Martin, who was only 4 at the time. Ray and Andy will be “running” together again, with Andy as a wheelchair entrant.¬†Ray will be running for his current Patient Partner Chris Read more and consider supporting the team HERE.

Although the Club will miss working beside Lion Ray at our breakfast, we will be running with him, Andy, and Chris in spirit and wish them the best in their race!
