Lions hold Out of Sight Night, ready for Oct. 4 dinner
LAKE WYLIE The River Hills Lions Club’s September dinner meeting was different from the norm.
The theme was An Out of Sight Night, so named because the evening featured a panel of speakers affected by sight loss. Diners had an option of enjoying the main course while wearing blindfolds.
The experience served to reinforce the Lions’ commitment to serving the blind and visually impaired by raising awareness, providing monetary contributions, and offering health and wellness screenings.
