The Little Neck Douglaston Lions Club will honor three local activists at its annual dinner dance on Nov. 18.
The event will take place at 7 p.m. at Leonard’s of Great Neck, located at 555 Northern Blvd.
"Service is the essence of our club," President Carolyn Meenan said. "It's our motto."
Meenan said the group works to raise $10,000 each year to provide a seeing eye dog to a local resident.
William Klein, who was born in Bayside but lives in Whitestone, is one of this year's honorees. He was chosen by the Lions Club for working with local Little League teams, the Knights of Columbus Council 5911 in Douglaston and the Memorial Day Parade.
Klein was named Lion of the Year.
Douglas Montgomery, who owns Douglaston’s Home NY Real Estate and is also president of the Douglaston Garden Club, was chosen because he has led several beautification projects of local parks, such as Catherine Richardson Turner Park.
The Lions Club is also honoring him for his participation in the annual Memorial Day parade that makes its way through northeast Queens as well as sitting on Community Board 11 and previously acting as the vice president for P.S. 98’s Parent Teacher Association.
Cheryl DeGeorge, of Little Neck, was picked as one of this year’s honorees for her work as vice president of the Little Neck Bay Civic Association as well as volunteering for All Saints Church in Bayside and at Udalls Cove.
