First Annual Tom Mahan Award

Not only is Elburn Lions Community Park treasured within our club, but within our community. Many will say that “the park is our biggest charity,” and others will simply note that without our park, the Elburn Lions Club would not be what it is today.

It takes an enormous amount of volunteer work to keep our park running – be it maintenance or upkeep, repairs or working events such as wedding receptions and anniversary parties. We count on volunteers from within our community to keep the park running.

At the Lions Club’s Installation Dinner on May 31st, 2014, Park Board President Lion Phil Gladd presented Lion Tom Mahan with the first annual Tom Mahan Award.

The Tom Mahan Award recognizes those individuals who have gone above and beyond to help maintain our park, and has been named after Lion Tom, who for years has given to our park.

Thank you, Lion Tom, for all you have done for the park!
