May's message from President Lion Bruce MacNair: A Lion’s Lion
Lion Rod Barnes is all about service and serving. Many Lions fit that description, but few have been at it as long as Rod.

To begin with, Rod served his country, dedicating thirty years of his life to the military. He started out as a US Marine, and later he transferred to the US Navy, where he ended his service at the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer. Between the two branches of service, I think Rod most closely identifies with the Marines. As the expression goes, “Once a Marine- always a Marine”. Our own Lion Ricardo Reyes can add a personal “OO-Rah” to that, having had a similar experience in the military. Bravo Zulu, Rod. Thank you for your service!

There isn’t enough space to chronicle all of Rod’s non-Lion activities, but one worth mentioning is his involvement with the local power squadron. He just can’t seem to stay away fromboats.

After a long and distinguished military career, the Lions found out about Rod in October of 1981, when he first donned the “Purple and Gold”. For almost 55 years, Rod has served our club, as well as many other Lions clubs. He has filled every office available at the local level, as well as being on numerous committees. Our newer members will most likely think of him as the Lion who sits at the back table, and collects eye-glasses and pull tabs. But those things barely scratch the surface of what he has done. Chairing the highway cleanup effort and being an advocate and club representative for our Boy Scout Troop are just a few. He has also been a familiar face at the Keystone Ferry Landing during “White Cane Days”, tirelessly collecting donations from generous patrons heading to Port Townsend. continue reading
