The Lions Club of Gunnedah has recognised three of its long-serving members with the prestigious Lions International Chevron Monarch Award and also welcomed new member Nikki Kilmore.

The Chevron Award Program recognises Lions for their long-term service, beginning at 10 years and continuing in five-year increments until 75 years of service.

Gunnedah Lion Paul Hope was honoured for 50 years’ service and Nev Adams for 40 years, with Marty Gurney clocking up 10 years membership.

New member Nikki Kilmore was inducted by Lions district governor Rosalie Davis and received her badge from her sponsor Nev Adams.
