The Richmond Hill Lions Club met Feb. 27 at the J.F. Gregory Park Wetland Center.  
Rich DeLong, executive director of The Suites at Station Exchange senior-living community, presented a slide show and explained the services, amenities, and move-in incentives.
Some of the highlights included 32 senior living suites, memory-care studios, a home-style environment in common areas, planned programs for residents, a music-therapy program, scheduled transportation, three meals daily and other services.
Joseph Hoke and Donna Hoke, sponsored by Dale Mitchum; the Rev. Don Dilley, sponsored by Del Turner; and Jim Newman, sponsored by Tommy Brookshire, were inducted into membership by President Rick Gardner. Each new member received a certificate and had an official club pin, which was pinned on them by their sponsor.
Gardner also presented chevrons for years of service to Mike Bush (10 years), Al Dixon (30 years), Robby Rahn (45 years) and Bill Hurst (50 years). These members have given many years of dedicated service in the Richmond Hill community where needed.
Also, officers for the 2014-15 year were elected.
The club sponsors the Star Student/Star Teacher program for Richmond Hill High School and gives a monetary grant to the Star Student and a scholarship to a graduating senior, provides glasses for students and members of the community where needed, sponsors a child to the Camp for the Blind each summer, and other service activities as needed.
Those interested in becoming a part of the organization can contact a Lion or write to the club at P.O. Box 798, Richmond Hill, GA 31324.
