The Columbus Lions recently hosted their annual party for visually impaired residents of Polk County. The Lions prepared and served the lunch, and the entertainment was provided by Don and Pam McMahon who sang and played guitar.
The McMahon’s have been making music together for over 46 years. They are called “Straight from the Heart” and their music is known as acoustic music to feed your soul. Everyone enjoyed the musical messages of love and oneness.   Marian Corn, Polk County’s representative from the North Carolina Division for the Blind, also entertained with trivia questions. The guests received prizes and take-home gifts.
Helping people with vision and hearing impairments is a primary mission of the Columbus Lions. In addition, Lions Clubs International is engaged in a campaign to eliminate all avoidable blindness worldwide.
For more information about being a Lion and what Lions do in the community, call Fran Goodwin at 828-894-2505. The Columbus Lions meet on the first and third Thursdays at Calvert’s Kitchen in Columbus. Visitors are welcome.
