Letter To The Editor
White Cane Week

May 30, 2012

Dear Editor,

The Clarkston Area Lions wish to thank everyone for their support during our recent “White Cane Week”. Through your generosity, we collected over $9,400.

All (100%) of the funds collected will be used to support many sight and hearing projects, including Leader Dogs for the Blind, Michigan Eye Bank and Transplant Center, Lions Bear Lake Camp for Physically Challenged Youth, Penrickton Center for Blind Children, Beaumont Silent Children Fund, and the District 11A2 Lions Hearing Program in Macomb and Oakland Counties, just to mention a few. Additionally, we support Clarkston Lighthouse, Offering Alternative Therapy with Smiles, Inc. (O.A.T.S), the Independence Township Library (resources for the sight impaired), and SCAMP. Money raised during White Cane Week also allows the Lions to provide eyeglass and hearing aid support to those in need, as well as free vision screening for pre-school children.

Whether from a car window or at the grocery, it is the generosity of donors that allows the Clarkston Area Lions to help serve others. You are truly helping the Lions make a difference in our community.

Visit and

Bob Murdock

President, Clarkston Area Lions
