Ste. Genevieve group holds anniversary event featuring Lions Club officials.

Several members of the Cape Evening Lions Club helped the Ste. Genevieve Lions celebrate their 75th anniversary recently.

Past district governor Marshall James was master of ceremonies.

Ste. Genevieve Mayor Dick Greminger welcomed the Lions, and immediate past district governor Robert McKlin introduced featured speaker Freddie Joyce from Searcy, Ark.

Past council chairman Charlie Hartmann introduced the honored guest, Cheri Robertson. Robertson gave an update on her blindness and the doctor in New York who found a way to send video images from a camera to her brain.

Many Lions Clubs raised about half of the $125,000 necessary for the operation. Lions International matched that amount.

Robertson, of St. Louis, now known as "Robochick" has been able to work and handle her everyday life after training by the Lions World Service for the Blind.
