Simmons Spring Fair

The Horsham Lions Club was on hand at Simmons Elementary's Spring Fair on May 12th. The fair is held each year to raise funds for the Home & School Association. The Lions were there to meet the community and try to drum up interest in Lionism.

Lions Tara Smith, Ted and Shirley Truver, John Bill and Andy Weiss helped staff our table, where we handed out pencils to the children and Lions literature to the adults. Tara's daughter, Becky, came to help out as well. Becky received a scholarship from the Horsham Lions back in 2005.

Roger Weiss, a vision-impaired friend of the Horsham Lions, was also on hand. The cost of raising and training his Leader Dog, Layla, was partially funded by the Horsham Lions. Roger and Layla gave the children a chance to learn about Leader Dogs and about people with vision impairment.
