Del Sol Lions host Blind Community Center at races

DEL MAR — Jason Smith, Robin Kemp, Julie Ustin, Robert Baker, Robert Rosenthal, Robert Roberts, Shay Baker, Dee Snow and Dave Roberts, volunteers from the Del Sol Lions and Leos, escorted 18 members of the Blind Community Center of San Diego to a special day at the Del Mar Race Track on July 29.
This annual visit is one of many activities that encourages independent travel through the use of white canes, guide dogs and other tools. Christie Green, a Blind Community Center volunteer, said she was thrilled to partner with the newly chartered Del Sol Lions Club and looks forward to a long-term partnership between the two organizations, which have similar missions to serve the blind and visually impaired.
