Burbank Noon Lion recognized by City Council

Burbank Noon Lion David Gold was recently honored by the Burbank

City Council with the prestigious Older American Service Award as

recognition for his involvement in serving the blind community.

Throughout the past decade and especially in the past year, Gold

has taken on the responsibility of driving blind residents to monthly

meetings and social events in the area.

Gold also recruited one of his blind riders to the Lions Club, and

makes sure that he is able to attend regular Lions meetings.

service deeply effected the quality of life of a handful of Burbank

residents,” club member Marva Murphy said.

Burbank Noon Lions meet at noon every second and fourth Thursday

at The Castaway, 1250 Harvard Road. For more information, call

Murphy at 955-8018.
