 The Annandale Lions Club will conduct a memorial service for Lion Art Fearing on Wednesday, June 29 at 1:30 PM at the Little River United Church of Christ, 8410 Little River Turnpike, Annandale, VA 22003.  Lion Art was a member of the Annandale Lions Club for many years, served the club in numerous leadership positions, and was active in its service projects. We offer our deep sympathy to his family for their loss but are also thankful for having known and worked with Art to make this community a better place. 

Lion Art first joined the Lions organization in 1966 in Killeen, Texas. In December 1975, he helped form the Alexandria VA Bicentennial Lions Club, where he served as a president. He transferred to the Annandale Lions Club in March 1980 and over the next 25 years he not only served our club in several leadership positions but was also an active participant in our service projects and fellowship activities. He was our representative to the Annandale Interservice Council of the Chamber of Commerce. While on the Council, he served as its Treasurer for many years and also coordinated the annual Thanksgiving dinner, which was held at the Salvation Army�s rehabilitation facility. He was also instrumental in arranging for the Lions to receive used hearing aids from the Walter Reed Medical Center for refurbishment and reissue to the needy of the community. In recognition of his lifelong service to the community , Lion Art was awarded a Melvin Jones Fellowship in 1995.
