The Mane Lion

Lion Robert Porter, Executive Director of San Angelo’s Lighthouse for the Blind was the guest speaker at last Thursday’s Brady Lions Club Meeting. The Lighthouse serves as an arm of the Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center in Midland, and Lion Robert accepted nearly 100 used eyeglasses that you helped us collect for our ‘Blast for Glasses.’ THANK YOU, McCULLOCH COUNTY CITIZENS! The day’s program centered around a video of the Leader Dog School at Rochester, MN. Lions Clubs International helped to found that operation, and all Lions help to fund it. The school raises about 300 dogs at a time, with the puppies under 4 months of age living in ‘foster’ homes. The school spends about $20,000 to raise and train each dog, and they are given to blind and otherwise disabled persons free! Even the training for the dogs and their future masters is given free! (Now there’s a big ‘We Serve.’) Here’s more Brady Lions Club news: Applications for this year’s scholarship are now available at all high schools; Lions Honor Banquet will be Monday, March 26; the patriotic banner program will get under way soon ‘ banners up for rodeo, July 4th & Goat Cookoff. Come visit a Brady Lions Club meeting. How about this Thursday, noon, at Cafe at the Depot ‘ east entrance’ You might even want to join. We’re big on community service, and we’re big on having fun while we serve.
