The Shelter Island Lions Club has announced its coveted Citizens of the Year Award for 2017, naming Tippi and Al Bevan.
In a statement, the club said the Bevans “wonderfully reflect the Lion’s motto — We Serve — for their tireless dedication to the Island food pantry for well over 10 years.”
The club also noted the couple’s long-time volunteer work for the Island’s Meals on Wheels program that serves many home bound residents.
The Bevans will be honored at the annual Lions Citizenship dinner in May. A date and venue will be announced soon.
