Lions learn about Canine Companions for Independence

Fourteen Lions of Zone B, District 24D, Lions Clubs International attended a presentation by Lion Jim Purton, District 24A LPCCI Cabinet Chairman, on the Lions Project for Canine Companions for Independence at Riverside Doctors Hospital. Lions Clubs are known for their support of Leader Dogs for the Blind but LPCCI trains dogs to help those with hearing and physical disabilities. Both the James City Lions Club and Williamsburg Host Lions Club were well represented. If you want more information please contact
