Annual Holiday Dinner Featured the Students From the SC School of the Deaf and Blind

Our most popular annual dinner saw 123 Lions and their guests attending the gala event along with 19 students . Students from the  SC School for the Deaf and Blind entertained us  with holiday songs followed by a visit from Father Christmas who gave each child a gift bag (purchased by Ellen Gillis).  This  tradition  is entering its tenth year!

A check in the amount of $3,000 was presented to the school’s Performing Arts Department via Ann Akerman, Chief Executive Officer of the Walker Foundation and Margaret E. Park,  President of  the school.

Thanks again to Peg Stoklas and her many  dedicated Lions volunteers. We also thank the Lake Wylie Pilot’s Catherine Muccigrosso (Editor) for its publicity  and support throughout the year and the photos of the event.
