Dr. Frank DiMauro, whose dental practice is based in Middleton, has been honored with the Melvin Jones Fellowship for his commitment to humanitarian work through the Woburn Host Lions Club. The fellowship is the foundation’s highest honor and represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion, and concern for the less fortunate.
The award, created in 1973 and named after the founder of Lions Clubs International, Melvin Jones, is presented in recognition of ongoing commitment to humanitarian work, not for a specific accomplishment. Melvin Jones Fellows receive a lapel pin and a personalized wall plaque in honor of their commitment to helping others.
“I’m truly honored to receive the Melvin Jones Fellowship from the Woburn Host Lions Club,” said Dr. Frank DiMauro. “I believe that giving back to the communities in which we live and work is extremely important. To be recognized by my peers for something that I get joy from doing is very humbling.”
The Woburn Host Lions Club is 100 members strong and is a member club of Lions Clubs International, which is the world’s largest service organization, with over 1.3 million members. Lions are men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes, with a major focus on service to the blind and the visually impaired. The organization’s motto is “We Serve.” The Woburn Host Lions meet every Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza hotel.
