District 4L1 Fishing Trips for the Blind

 

District 4L1 Fishing Trips for the Blind 

 
Dear Fellow Lion, Once again, it is time to ask for your support of the District 4L1 Fishing Trips for the Blind. These trips continue as a tribute to Lion Dick Krueger and to the benefit of the Visually Impaired young people of the Braille Institute. 

Hopefully each of you is aware that clubs in our district sponsor two fishing trips for blind young people each summer. This, the first trip is out of L.A. Harbor Sportfishing, San Perdo (June 13, 2013) and the second trip is out of Channel Islands Sportfishing (August 01, 2013) 

We take 10-15 blind teenagers, match them up with a like number of Lions, and go one on one to introduce these youngsters to the thrill of deep-sea fishing, where they hone their confidence skills. 

 The District, through the Blind Fishing Account, covers the cost of the boat, food, soft drinks, miscellaneous terminal tackle, and fish filleting for the blind youngsters. The accompanying Lions pay for their own gear, food, soft drinks and fishing filleting (if any). 

The cost of fuel continues to rise and the two trips cost approximately $3,550.00 last summer. We are asking for contributions of $200.00 to maintain this program. Naturally, we will be pleased to accept any contribution your club decides on. 

 Please make check payable to District 4-L1 Blind Fishing Account and send them to Kathy Amman Chairman of the Blind Fishing Trip. My new address is 11944 Hesby St. Valley Village, CA 91607. 

 If your club is interested in a program about this project or have people interested in going fishing with the kids on any of the trips, please call or E-mail Lion Kathy Amman. 818-736-5615 home, 818-400-1309 cell phone, or email kathyamman@yahoo.com.

 Thank you so very much for your continuing support. 

 Lion Kathy Amman
