At the event, four Lions will be inducted into the Hall of Fame – Earl Dobson (posthumously), Rod Bach, Bill Nourse and Sharon Rollins – joining twenty other Lions who have left a significant legacy of serving others. The very first member of the Hall of Fame was Dr. Richard Chenoweth, who was recognized with an OLSHF Lifetime Achievement Award at the Foundation’s 50th Anniversary Gala in 2009. Due to the contributions of these inductees and their Lions Clubs, OLSHF assists thousands of Oregonians with sight and hearing issues who have nowhere else to turn for help.
Each fall we gather together to share the rich history of Lions and OLSHF. Our programs succeed because of the support and dedication of amazing Lions leaders, local clubs and their members. We thank Lions for their support and look back with pride at the tremendous impact they’ve made in their communities in partnership with the Foundation.
