DG Larry Marcum and 1st Lady Ida along with 1st Guide Dog Brinkley visited our club along with 2VDG Janie Hart, and Region Chair Ken Johnston and his lovely wife Shelly. 
The DG shared his vision of what it means to Strengthen the Pride.  Ist Lady Ida, as an Advisor for the Lions Eye Foundation, shared information about the 55 year history of how the LEF was formed.  It has grown until, in 2012 alone, it provided over 6 Million dollars of eye surgeries and procedures to a little over 2100 patients, all at no cost to the patients.
2VDG Janie Hart shared her experience with attending Lions Leadership Training in Sacramento.  She highly encourages any Lion regardless of whether they are new or have been in Lions for decades to plan to attend the training in October.
