At their most recent meeting, Bristol Area Lion Walt Johansson received his 40-year chevron from Maine 1st Vice-District Governor Tia Knapp.  Johansson’s award understated the years he had been a member, as he first joined in 1971 when he moved to Bristol, then after three years, he dropped out to serve as youth minister at his church and as Boy Scout Troop #228 scoutmaster, since he was still working at that time.   After four years, he rejoined the club in 1978. 

Johansson at 85, is the club’s oldest member, and its top raffle ticket salesman.  He goes door-to- door walking down the long roads and driveways off Pemaquid Harbor Road. His sales were over $1,000 and accounted for a third of the total proceeds. 

Johansson is a past-president of the Bristol Area Lions, currently serves as the membership chairman, and oversees the maintenance of the Willing Workers Hall which the club owns.
