MARSHFIELD — On June 21 at Wildwood Station, Thomas Stram of the Marshfield Lions Club was awarded a Birch-Sturm Fellowship in recognition of his commitment to serving the people of Marshfield and beyond.
The fellowship is named for the only two presidents of Lions Clubs International from Wisconsin: Frank Birch and Clarence Sturm. The fellowship honors those who exemplify undying dedication and commitment to humanitarian works.
Stram has been a Lion since 1983, serving as president of the Marshfield Lions twice. Stram has also traveled to Mexico several times to distribute used eyeglasses along with other Lions from Wisconsin.
As a Birch-Sturm Fellow, Stram becomes a part of a growing network of individuals who are committed to improving the quality of life for those in Wisconsin and around the world.
