Warren Coleman Awards
The Warren Coleman Honorary Award was created at the Iowa Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation meeting on June 10, 1988. The award concept is that one award is available to be given to a club for each $1,000 contribution to the Iowa Lions Foundation.
Past District Governor Sir Warren Coleman was a veteran and long-time member of the Oskaloosa club having joined in 1948. He served as District Governor 9 years later in 1957-58. After serving as DG, Sir Warren held many positions on the Foundation for over the next 40 years. He was only the second Lion to be Knighted by the Council of Governors on January 11, 1997, where he was quoted saying, “I love serving and doing something I enjoy”. Sir Warren Coleman was the first to receive the award named after himself.
The following is a list of past and present Eldridge Lions Club members have received this prestigious award.
