Bowling for Dog Guides a Huge Success!
The Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guide Canine Vision Program will be the beneficiary of the proceeds from a well-attended recent bowling night hosted by Lincoln Lanes in Vernon, BC. Everyone who tried using the special glasses learned what it might be like to live with a vision impairment.
Vernon Lion Gail Pifer - a graduate recipient of seeing eye dog Tyrell - did an incredible job of organizing the inaugural evening which is sure to become an annual event.
Major sponsors were Vernon Veterinary Clinic, Drs. Fellenz and Hollands of The Mustard Seed Clinic, and Petland, Vernon. The Lumby Lions Club also made a significant donation, and Elephant Storage provided excellent sponsor signage at cost only.
Lane sponsors were The Nucerity Group, Safeway Vernon Square, Vernon Mayor Robert Sawatzky, The Morning Star, Hogarth's Pharmacy, Vernon Lion Bill Friend, Rene Gendron of the MS Society, and Vernon Optometry.
Lions Help with
Do It For Dad Walk/Run
Father's Day, June 15, 2014 was the 15th anniversary of the Do It For Dad Walk/Run in support of Prostate Cancer awareness and research. While many people stepped up to participate, organize and volunteer to make this event successful, the Vernon Lions were out in force to man water stations and direct parking. We even had some help from our neighbours and friends, the Armstrong Lions. Check out our Activities page for more photos.
