The Brandel – Murphy Youth Foundation has created a unique award to recognize the outstanding service performed by Lions throughout Multiple District 20 - the "Miracles Through Service" Award. This award was aptly named after an important theme used by PIP Al Brandel during his year as our International President.
Each Governor in MD20 will be able to nominate one outstanding Lion in their district for the "Miracles Through Service Award." Each Governor will receive a nomination form to be completed and returned to the Foundation. The Governors may not nominate themselves.
The nomination must first be approved by the Board of Directors of the Brandel – Murphy Youth Foundation, cannot be purchased, and is only presented through the Foundation. During a special ceremony at the MD20 Convention, each recipient will be presented with their medallion, a certificate signed by PIP Al and Foundation President PCC John Wargo, along with a lapel pin that can be proudly worn or displayed to honor their outstanding service.
In addition to being nominated by each district governor on a yearly basis, PIP Al Brandel and Lion Dr. Maureen Murphy may also select one outstanding Lion each year, who in their opinion, has done outstanding service for those in need. Lastly, the Foundation Board of Trustees may nominate a "Miracles Through Service" award recipient each year as well bringing the annual total to only 14 awards.
