Chairman Kicks Off 75th Anniversary Planning

Kerrville, TX - January 13, 2020. During the November 2019 meeting of the Executive Committee, Chairman of the Board Gary Linker appointed Treasurer, Tom Blase and President & CEO, Stephen Mabry to head the planning/steering committee that will make plans to celebrate TLC's Diamond anniversary.

Stephen reported that TLC will celebrate 75 years of service to children when the birthday of its founding is observed on April 4, 2024. Coincidentally, four days later, a full solar eclipse will occur and perhaps not so coincidentally, the epicenter for this eclipse will be none other than...TEXAS LIONS CAMP IN KERRVILLE, TEXAS!. As if there were ever any doubt, one might even be led to conclude, that the stars have aligned for TLC to take its next step into the future.

As Tom and Stephen have met to begin initial planning, they have begun discussing those who would be "stellar" partners to add to the endeavor, which will be comprised of Lions, TLC Pro-staff, Former-staff members and community members. Appointments to the committee will soon be going out.

Stephen has already added a page to the Camp's website to catalogue, advertise and invite everyone to hold a place on their calendar. Visit the site today and learn more and if you have a great idea on how we might take our celebration during the four-day, celestial celebration to the Next-Level, then drop us a line and PLAN TO GET INVOLVED!


Stephen is President and CEO of Texas Lions Camp, Inc. and recently celebrated 30 years of service to this 70 year-old, 501(c)(3) charitable, organization in August of 2019. TLC, Inc. has a large Board of Directors consisting of 94 voting members and over 300 volunteer members that serve on one of 10 standing committees. As a corporation, TLC has more than 200 full-time and seasonal employees (who are organized into 7 departments) and over 2,000 volunteers per year that are responsible for creating an atmosphere of success for more than 1,500 children with physical disabilities per summer. Stephen is a Certified Association Executive with the American Society of Association Executives, a past Certified Fund-Raising Executive with the Association of Fundraising Professionals. Stephen is a father of three and resides on TLC’s Kerrville campus together with his wife Shawn, who as luck would have it, is a professional editor.
