Sarah Rash was the special guest at the recent meeting of the Richmond Hill Lions Club.
The club sponsors Sarah to attend the Camp for the Blind in Waycross for a week during her summer vacations.
She attended the School for the Blind in Macon for a number of years and now attends school in Ellabell.
She talked about her experiences this year at camp, which included riding horses, swimming and receiving the name “Lifeguard Sarah.”
The Rev. Don Dilley, pastor of Richmond Hill Presbyterian Church and a club member, was the evening’s speaker.
Dilley recently returned from Israel with the Presbyterian Peacemaking Team. He gave a slide presentation and explained the conflict and way of life in that region.
The team saw many religious holy sites, including the birthplace of Jesus, the Jordan River where Jesus was baptized (the river is about the size of Sterling Creek, to give an example of size), remains of the temple that was built on the threshing floor, Dome of the Rock, Garden of Gethsemane, Temple of Holocaust, Blessed Wall (Wailing Wall) and other sites.
Dilley also showed maps of the area and explained the construction of buildings and transportation.
New club member Mae Hall, sponsored by Bobby Hall, was inducted into the club by President Rick Gardner.
Mae Hall has been active in the club for months, helping at meetings and club events.
