|Decades of vision for change: Lions Club 'on fire' for community|
For more than 50 years, dozens of some of the most prominent men in Ouachita Parish have quietly made a difference in the lives of countless local children.
They are members of the North Monroe Lakeshore Lions Club, which will soon change its name to the Greater Ouachita Lions Club.
President Bob Fitzgerald said the Lions Club of Louisiana has agreed to the name change, and now the request must be approved by Lions Club International.
"We've been meeting over at Catfish Cabin for more than 50 years, back when it was the Rendezvous and you could get a $2-dollar steak dinner," Fitzgerald said. "North Monroe Lakeshore was the culmination of two clubs that joined together - the North Monroe Lions Club and the Lakeshore Lions Club. Now, because we serve all of Ouachita Parish, we're changing our name to the Greater Ouachita Lions Club."
