Kluiter received this award due to years of service to the Lions Club and the community. Currently serving as Treasurer of the local service organization, he is charged with the ongoing review and maintenance of club revenues and expenses. “Bill has written many checks on behalf of the Grimes Lions Club” stated club President Steve Reneker. “Those checks have helped people to see, children to participate in camps, and have given students a little assistance getting through college.”
Bill has been extensively involved in the eye screening program that Lions conduct at local pre-schools; a program that helps educators and parents identify early warning signs of potential sight issues.
Kluiter is the most recent of several Grimes Lions Club members to have received the award, which was named in honor of longtime Executive Secretary Treasurer Warren Coleman, who gave freely his time and dedication to the Iowa Lions Foundation and the programs which it supports. The award is conferred to persons who demonstrate community service and can only be made possible by a contribution of $1,000 to the Iowa Lions Foundation.
