The Richmond Hill Lions Club met Feb. 26 at the Wetland Center in Richmond Hill’s J.F. Gregory Park for its annual oyster roast.
Everyone present enjoyed roasted oysters, hot dogs, chili, Italian soup and delicious desserts.
Club President Rick Gardner presented the 30-year Chevron to Dale Mitchum for 30 years dedicated service to the Richmond Hill Lions Club, Richmond Hill community and to Bryan County. Donald Allen, sponsored by District Gov. 18-N Chip Nedza, was inducted into club membership by President Rick Gardner.  
Peach Hubbard, a volunteer with the Dolphin Project, presented a slideshow on bottlenose dolphins and their habitat. She explained the difference between dolphins that live near the shoreline and those living in the ocean; their eyesight, ears and hearing; life spans; dangers of the different man-made things (trash, plastic, fishing lines) in the waters as well as boat traffic; their sounds; intelligence; sleeping habits; bubble-blowing; hunting and feeding habits; the importance of marshes on the East Coast, etc.
She also stressed the importance of not feeding the dolphins and staying 50 yards away when watching them.
The Dolphin Project volunteers spend many hours to insure that the dolphins have a safe place to live and monitor them to insure they are healthy. Those planning to slow down and watch for dolphins when enjoying a time in recreational vehicles on the water should not leave articles such as plastic bags, fishing line and trash.
