A local community service club has recognized a longtime member for his strong support and dedication.

The Wetaskiwin Lions Club recently presented the Chevron Award to one of its original founders Arnold Hoyme. Hoyme has been a member of the club since he helped found it an incredible 60 years ago.

According to current Wetaskiwin Lions president Real Berube, Hoyme started the Wetaskiwin club when he was 31 years old. Hoyme moved to Camrose for two years then returned to Wetaskiwin in 1958.

Hoyme is instrumental in bingo and has also been involved in other community organizations such as boy scouts. Berube noted Hoyme, who was employed in insurance and real estate, is known for his work with youth.

Hoyme spent time in Winfield as well, where he also started their Lions Club.

Obviously, an award for 60 year membership in the Lions Club is not handed out very often. Berube said Hoyme is a very worthy recipient. “It was an honour for me to give him that,” added Berube.
