Lion Bill transferred his membership to the Annandale Lions Club on April 1, 1983 and served the greater Annandale community as an active member for almost 30 years.  He was our President from July 1, 1988 through June 30, 1989. 

A Melvin Jones Fellowship was endowed in his name at Lions Clubs International Foundation.  The Melvin Jones Fellowship is named after the founder of Lions Clubs, and is the highest honor bestowed by a Lions Club.

In recent years, he served as Secretary or Assistant Secretary of the Club, and he normally contributed one of the few on-key voices when the Club attempted to sing a song during a meeting.
