Lion Rose Russell was on hand to speak about The Indiana Lions and discussed the Lions five state projects which include Leader Dogs, School for the Blind, Hearing and Speech, Cancer and Vision Screening.  In addition, she said volunteers are needed to work for the Lions Foundation as ticket sellers, ticket scanners, kiosk monitors, and hand stampers at the Indiana State Fair July 29th thru August 21st in Indianapolis.  This is the Lions Foundation’s largest fundraiser.
