Letter: Osage City Lions thank you for helping ‘Knights of the Blind’

Dear Editor:

Helen Keller challenged international Lions Club members to be “Knights of the Blind” in 1925. Since then Lions Clubs throughout the world have been dedicated to accepting this challenge.

The Osage City Lions Club has put on a golf tournament for 38 years, with the purpose of donating money to the Kansas Lions Sight Foundation. This foundation provides eye care to people of Kansas, including sight screenings that Lions do for school children all over the state.

Because of you who donate money, gifts and time, we have had very successful tournaments. The list of our sponsors is unbelievable, and they have assisted the Osage City Lions in donating $1,000 every year of the tournament to help do our part to accept Helen Keller’s challenge.

The Osage City Lions Club thanks you for your continued support!

Richard Burkdoll
Osage City Lions Club
