The Lions Journey for Sight starts in Flin Flon Wednesday morning. The Journey is an annual fundraiser for the Lions Eye Bank of Manitoba and Northwest Ontario. One of the organizers Dean Lounsbury from the Dauphin Lions Club says snowmobiles from across the province will start the northern leg at the Walmart Parking lot Wednesday morning about 10 o’clock off to Cranberry Portage for dinner and day number one will conclude in The Pas. He explains after The Pas they go to Overflowing River for dinner and day number two will take them to Swan River where they will split with half the group going highway 83 toward Russell, Roblin, Birtle and the rest will go to Dauphin to spend the night then they all get dinner in Neepawa and head off to Brandon for the conclusion on Saturday.
The Journey for Sight raised 77 thousand dollars for the Lions Eye Bank last year. To make a donation locally contact Andy or Melissa Wasylciw.
