Letter to Editor: Lions report successful White Cane drive

May 15, 2013

The Oxford Lions Club members were on the streets of Oxford May 3-4 selling “White Canes.”

Thanks to the generous people of the Oxford area and the wonderful support of the Oxford Leader, which advertised the fund-raiser, our dedicated Lions were able to raise donations totaling $4,635.56.

This is the best sale we have ever had, and we are eternally grateful for your support.

One hundred percent of the funds received, after costs, go to those in need, including people who are blind and deaf as well as funding our two Oxford High School scholarships for students who wish to attend college. On behalf of the Oxford Lions Club, I say thank you one and all.

Charles W. Garrard

Oxford Lions Club President
