The Columbus Lions recently hosted their annual party for visually impaired residents of Polk County. This year, entertainment was provided by 21 members of the Polk County Middle School band and their director, Jill Bennett. Prior to the concert, the eighth graders, visually impaired guests, and Lions enjoyed socializing as they were served a lunch prepared by the Lions.
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.
