Bluffton Lions invite your nominations for citizen of the year

The Bluffton Lions Club seeks nominees for the 2019 Citizen of the Year Award.

The nominee may be living or deceased within the last year. This year’s winner will be feted at a banquet on April 21, 2020.  

Anyone interested in making a nomination may obtain an application either by contacting John Rich (419-358-5405) or visiting the Lions Club website at www.blufftonlions.org.
