Merrill Sumey and Joseph Moreau were designated as honorary members of the Freedom District Lions Club, effective Jan. 1, during the club's Dec. 19 board of directors meeting at Messiah Lutheran Church in Berrett. Honorary members are not official members of the service club or Lions Clubs International. Both recently resigned from the FDLC because they could no longer participate in the activities of the service club. Sumey was a member and past president of the former Randallstown Lions Club before becoming a member of the Reisterstown Lions Cub and, most recently, a member of the FDLC during his 57 years as a Lion. Moreau was an active member of the FDLC for about 37 years. FDLC President Don Champ and FDLC Secretary Gary Buchman presented both their certificates at their residences on Dec. 28.
