Horsham Lions Visit Sunrise Assisted Living

On October 5th the Horsham Lions visited Sunrise Assisted Living of Dresher. We established a connection with Sharon Damsker, director of community relations for Sunrise of Dresher, earlier this year at a fundraiser they held for the Lions. We hope this connection grows stronger!

During the visit, we were given a tour of their new Low Vision resident rooms. These rooms are specially designed for people with vision impairment, to give them a better quality of life without robbing them of dignity. The Lions were very impressed with this program.

Several District 14-R members were also on hand, including District Governor Dick Stein, Vice District Governor Joanne George, and PDG Jack Binstead. All were very interested in fostering a partnership between Sunrise and the Lions.

During the meeting, District Governor Stein inducted our newest member to the Horsham Lions Club, Pat McDevitt.

Sunrise of Dresher’s first resident was a happy and friendly chocolate lab named Duncan, who begged for treats throughout the whole meeting! Thanks go to Lion John Campisi for bringing hoagies for our dinners.

Members of the district will be following up with Sunrise in the coming months, to discuss joint ventures to raise funds for the blind and increase awareness of Sunrise’s new Low Vision program.
