The Hope Lions Club heard from a member on Monday and a special guest. Lions Craig Robinson told the club he would be moving from Hope to work with Lions World Services for the Blind in Little Rock. The club gave Robinson a standing ovation after he told them his news and noted how much he’d enjoyed being a Lion. Robinson has been a very active member of the club for several years.
Smith is a breast cancer survivor and she explained she helps to mentor those who have suffered from the disease. She’s worked with around 8 ladies who have had breast cancer and she noted all have recovered. Smith said she’d like to help form a group for the specific aim at mentoring more ladies who suffer from breast cancer. She also said she hopes to start a “breast cancer walk” on the last Saturday in October to raise awareness to the disease. Smith works in the pharmacy at Wal-Mart and she’d be happy to visit with anyone who wants to help with the walk or starting a mentoring group.
