Dynamic Dallas Attorney to Lead Oak Cliff Lions

Dallas attorney Carol Donovan will be installed as the 89th President of the Oak Cliff Lions Club on Thursday Night at Hitt Auditorium on the Methodist Dallas Medical Center Campus.

Active in the League of Women Voters and the founding director of the Castleberry Peace Institute at the University of North Texas, the Dallas Morning News Editorial Board recommended her to represent District 107, saying “she will bring fresh ideas for effective state government.”

She lost the election but it freed her up to become only the 7th female President of the Oak Cliff Lions club in 86 years.

The Oak Cliff Lions Club of Dallas, Texas was organized on April 1, 1929, by 35 outstanding community leaders and officially Chartered by Lions Clubs International on April 30, 1929. These leaders built and leave a lasting legacy of foresight and leadership to future leaders and members of the Club.  Currently there are nearly 150 Lions in the Oak Cliff Club.

Past President of the Oak Cliff Lions Club is a who’s who of business leaders from the community:
