Chantel Buck of New Vision for Independence, a Rehabilitation, Community Education and Support Services organization serving all of Lake and Sumter Counties, spoke to the Lions Club at its meeting at IHOP in Clermont.  Chantel demonstrated a number of aids that have proven to be a boon to the blind.

King Lion Dan Strauss introduced Groveland Police Chief Shawn Ramsey.  The Police Chief invited the Club to join the Groveland Police Department in holding an archery program for local youth.  The Lions Board made a recommendation to accept Chief Ramsey’s proposal and the Club unanimously agreed.  Stay tuned for further detail.

The Lions Shooting Range on SR 50 across from Tractor Supply has seen steady gains in patrons and has become very popular with ladies signing up to gain confidence and accuracy in handling pistol shooting.  Lions Member Bill Sigenthaler has donated signs and printed forms used on the range.

The range is open to the public on the second, third and fourth Saturdays, 8-noon.  Only the third Saturday is limited to shotgun shooting.  Skeet shooting has become the favorite format. King Lion Dan Strauss reminded the Club that the Lions will have a venue at the next First Friday Food Truck festival, August 4th along with Friends of FLORIDA LAKES SYMPHONY.  The Lions collect used eye glasses as well as food and clothing for the Neighborhood Center and collects TOYS FOR TRUNKS for our police officers.   For information, call Lion Dan: 717-278-7437.
