Lions Guide Dog Julian!

During his term as District Governor, IPDG Lance Maytham sponsored a guide dog at the SA Guide Dogs Association Banquet. His name was Julian named after Past International Director Julian Musikanth.

On 12 April 2018, following incentive training and puppy school DG Geila had the privilege of handing Julian to his new owner, South African paralympian swimmer Hendri Herpst.  Hendri lost his previous guide dog to cancer in December and had to go back to using a white can again.  This was very tough and he lost a lot of confidence. However, Julian has now given Hendri his freedom back.

We wish them well in their future lives together!

Thirty seven sterilisations took place on the day!

Well done to DG Geila and the Lions Club of Merriman who took the initiative to sponsor this worthwhile project.
