History was made this week with the Koroit Lions Club announcing its first female president.
Jan Rissman was named in the key leadership role at the club changeover meeting on Monday night.
The appointment continues Ms Rissman's trail blazing at the club.
When she first joined in 2013, she was the only female member of the club at the time.
She is now one of four women now on board as club members.
Ms Rissman said it was an honour to take up the top job.
"To be honest, I hadn't thought about being the first female president," Ms Rissman said.
"But I guess it is exciting to be creating a bit of history."
In her preparation for the president's role, Ms Rissman has served as the chair of the Koroit Lions Club Op Shop committee.
She said she was keen to have a positive influence on the club.
"I am keen to get some projects finished that have been on the go for a while," Ms Rissman said.
"The club has certainly grown in the last few years.
"The op shop has been operating for four-and-a-half years and that has been great for the club.
"It has allowed us the resources to take on a number of projects in the town.
"I really enjoy being part of the club, it is very tight-knit and they are a great bunch of people."
Ms Rissman takes over the president's role from Wayne Bryce.
Graeme Poynton takes over as secretary from Bruce Lowenthal while other roles announced at the changeover meeting included Matthew Herbert (first vice-president), John Featherby (second vice-president), Blake Allen (treasurer), Marg Everard (welfare officer), Bruce Brown (lion tamer), Shane McKew (tail twister), David Mathison (membership officer).
As well as operating the op shop in High Street, the Koroit Lions Club also hosts a number of events annually.
These include its swap meet show and shine in March and an art show at the Koroit Theatre on the long weekend in June.
The club was also build the playground at the rail trail and is also behind the upcoming installation of exercise equipment in that area.
It's members also man the gates at the Koroit Irish Festival and the Port Fairy Folk Festival.
