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.
