Most people know the Lions Club for their broom sales.  Many are aware of the Lions Club's work on behalf of the blind and visually impaired.  Some are familiar with Camp Dogwood and some know about other Lions Club efforts including support of the National Federal of the Blind BELL camp for children learning braille in the summer. 

The Lions Club is involved in a variety of programs related to vision.  Among them are the vision screenings at local schools recently completed.  On Saturday, one of the Lincolnton Lions Club's annual events was held at Boger City United Methodist Church.  With help from volunteers at the church, the Lions Club held its 16th annual Christmas Party for the Blind and Visually Impaired.  In addition to food and fun, there were gifts for those attending--ranging in age from a child who attended the BELL camp in the summer to at least two people in their 90s, one a World War II veteran. 

Faye Poovey, Lincolnton Lions Club president said, "We are very proud of this event because it gives us direct contact with the blind and visually impaired in our community.  We really appreciate the church.  This year, they not only provided the place to hold the party; they also prepared and served the meal."

Among those attending was Lincolnton Mayor John Gilleland, who commended the Lions for their work.  "We're very fortunate to have such caring people in our community," the mayor said.
