This page features ending stories of District 4-L1 Lions 

Peter Schellenbach
Lion Peter joined the Sunland-Tujunga club in September of 1953 and served as its president in 1956-57. He was active in many club activities, but he especially liked to be the Student Speaker Contest Chairman and/or Program Chairman. He served many years until his death as the Sight Conservation Chairman. He felt his greatest accomplishment in the Lions Club was spearheading two campaigns to establish and then enlarge the Lions Vision Clinic at MEND in the San Fernando Valley. 

In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations in his memory to the Lions Vision Clinic at MEND, 10641 San Fernando Rd., Pacoima, CA 91331; (please specify the Vision Clinic) or to the Sunland-Tujunga Lions Foundation, 7145 Woodley Ave., Van Nuys, CA 91406.
