The Lions Journey for Sight leaves Flin Flon Wednesday morning from the Victoria Inn. The Journey is the annual fund raiser for the Lions Eye Bank of Manitoba and Northwest Ontario. One of the organizers Dean Lounsbury from the Dauphin Lions Club says around 20 snowmobiles from across the province will leave from Flin Flon. He says they start snowmobiling out of Flin Flon on Wednesday, having dinner in Cranberry Portage and carrying on to The Pas in day number one. Day two is leaving The Pas to places like Overflowing River where they have dinner concluding in Swan River. He says day three is where the group will split with guys going down highway 83 to Roblin Russell area and the rest will carry on through the Duck Mountains to Willman Lake, Pine River, concluding in Dauphin.
The snowmobilers will be joined by other from across the province as they arrive in Brandon Saturday afternoon. The Journey for Sight raised over 83 thousand dollars for the Eye Bank last year.
