The Salisbury-Wicomico Lions Club would like to announce that President Bob Hortie has received the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award. The Melvin Jones Fellowship Award is named after the founder of the Lions Club International and is the highest honor bestowed upon a member. The award was established to recognize individuals' commitment to humanitarian service.
