The Fayetteville Community Lions Club held its first meeting of the year on January 11.
Our guest speaker was Nichole Corbett and her guide dog Cookie Monster. Nichole is
completely blind and works for the Vision Resource Center in Fayetteville. Her story was
motivating and inspirational. She has not allowed the fact
that she is blind to slow her down one bit! We enjoyed her
immensely and she had such a great time, that she joined our
club. She is now Lion Nichole!
It’s that time. CONVENTION TIME! Time to see some old friends and learn something new. You can download the convention ad form and registration.
