Urban League Announces its 2013 Lions

The Urban League of Greater Cincinnati is proud to announce its 19th class of Lions.  This year's honorees include Susan Upton Farley, Rev. H.L. Harvey, Barbara Smitherman and Kitty Strauss.  A short biography and photo will be available next week.

Each year the Urban League holds it "Glorifying the Lions Presentation" as part of its annual meeting luncheon.  The annual meeting will be held, from 11:30-1:30 p.m., Friday, February 8, 2013, at the downtown Hyatt Regency Hotel.

Lions may be nominated by any individual, company or organization in the Greater Cincinnati area.  To be considered for the award, individuals must have demonstrated a commitment to serving families and individuals in the community.  This includes distinguished leaders who have changed the face of Cincinnati by their words, actions and deeds.  It also includes lesser know people outside of the "usual achievers" who readily come to mind. Nominiees include a next-door-neighbor, a church member, or former classmate, all who have made a difference in the lives of families and individuals in the community.

Tickets for the event can be purchased by visiting the Urban League website at www.gcul.org.
