ALBION – The Albion Lions Club welcomed two new members – Aaron Robinson and Tim McMurray – to the service organization that is now in its 91st year in Albion.

Club President Bill Robinson, left, sponsored his son Aaron. McMurray, third from left, was sponsored by his uncle, Ron Albertson, far right.

Aaron Robinson, 35, works at CRFS and also plays drums for two local bands, The Who Dats and the Rusty Fisher Band.

He said he is happy to join the Lions, which meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. at the Masonic Lodge on Platt Street.

“It’s local and they do a lot of charity work,” Aaron said. “It’s a good supportive group that is positive.”

McMurray, 31, is a local youth football coach and a student at Erie Community College, majoring in civil engineering.

“They have a broad reach in the community,” McMurray said about the Lions. “It’s another way to give back to the community.”
