In case of rain, it will move to the Y Men’s Pavilion on Hill Street.
All proceeds from the fundraiser go to help people in the community with eyeglasses, eye exams and other eye-related health issues. The Hannibal Lions Club was the first Lions Club in Missouri, founded in 1917. This year it is celebrating 102 years as a part of the community. It is best known for fighting blindness.
