Doug Thompson, Executive Director of the Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation will update us on their programs, initiatives, and activities.
In 1925, deaf-blind activist Helen Keller challenged the Lions International Convention audience with these words: “Will you not help me hasten the day when there shall be no preventable blindness, no little deaf, blind child untaught, no blind man or woman unaided? I appeal to you Lions, you who have sight, your hearing, you who are strong and brave and kind. Will you not constitute yourselves Knight of the Blind in this crusade against darkness?”
Please join us at our frolicking, fun and informative breakfast meeting. You’ll find us at the Ecotrust Building in the beautiful Pearl District of Portland, Oregon on Tuesday mornings at 7:15 am. Visitors are always welcome (there is a $10 guest fee which covers a light breakfast).
