The month of July was a busy one for the Ormond-by-the-Sea Lions Club.

Per a club announcement, on July 8, Lions Jean Cerullo, Bobbie Cheh and Mary Yochum volunteered to help at the Birthday Bash for the Homeless in Daytona Beach, with host Christine's Blankets. Members served 150 hot dogs, followed by ice cream and cupcakes. Homeless individuals all received a pair of sunglasses donated by the club and a birthday present from Christine's Blankets..

Then on July 12, OBTS Lions Club President Greg Evans, along with Cheh, Cerullo and Yochum — who are the second vice president, secretary and past president, respectively — traveled to Orlando for a welcome reception for immediate Past International President Douglas Alexander, who was honored at the International Film Festival at the Orange County Convention Center with a humanitarian award and viewed the screening of the film produced on the Special Olympics.

On July 16, six Lions were retrained as diabetic screeners. Screening had been closed due to the pandemic, but members will once again be blood sugar screening free of charge for their community. A few days later on July 20, the club welcomed a new member: Alfredo Victoriano. 

The following day on July 21, members watched the clean-out of the turtle nests they sponsored. A total of 80 eggs had hatched, six were left in the nest and one baby turtle was released into the ocean. 

Finally on July 30, Cerullo, Cheh and Yochum helped prepare 150 meals at Hope Place for delivery to the homeless.
