Thanks for your commitment to the Robinson Township Lions Club, Lion Joe! Great to have seen you in the December 2016 issue of the Cauldron!
The week before Christmas, the Robinson Township Lions Club visited residents of the NHS Allegheny Valley School’s Stucco House, delivering gifts and spreading good vibes of Christmas cheer. The annual tradition is one that is much-anticipated not only by the residents of the Allegheny School, but also by the Robinson Lions!
After raising nearly $500 at the Fall Festival, we decided as an organization to match the donation and give $1,000 to leader dogs for the blind. These guide dogs serve as not only companions but as “assistive devices” of sorts to persons with blindness or visual impairment. Guide dogs, leader dogs, service dogs, and therapy dogs are so important for many who are disabled or ill. We were happy to devote our time fundraising for such an important cause and are proud of the work we have done for leader dog organizations.
We recently attended the 2016 Robinson Township Autumn Festival. You can view photos from the event on our Facebook page, HERE. It is also listed in MyLCI, and we were featured in a recent issue of The Cauldron newsletter, below.
We are excited for tomorrow!
Stop by our booth this Saturday at the Robinson Autumn Festival to meet some adorable leader dogs for the blind! You can also buy raffle tickets to win GREAT prizes from generous donors including Kavic Winery, The Mall at Robinson, Airmall at Pittsburgh International Airport, and several Lions Club members and friends!
Proceeds raised form the Robinson Lions Club raffle will go to guide dog organizations — and the Lions will match all donations and ticket purchases, up to $500!
See you tomorrow! And thank you to our donors and sponsors!

In memory of late Lion, Lee Louis, a member for decades. We donated to the Leader Dogs program in his honor.
In April of 2016, members of the Robinson Township Lions Club presented Leon’s wife, Eileen Louis, with a plaque in Leon’s honor.
His name will live on as part of the Leader Dogs for the Blind program, and we thank him for his 42 years of service as a Lion.
