Fidelco (and Viper!) Visit Concord Lions

The Concord Lions had two very special guests at the October Dinner meeting on Tuesday, October 8th: Christopher Eastwood, Fidelco Trainer/Instructor and Viper, a beautiful German Shepherd who recently graduated the Fidelco guide dog training program and will soon be placed with a visually impaired older gentleman who will enjoy increase independence with Viper by his side. Chris shared information about their programs with the Lions, explaining their selective breeding of German Shepherds, the two year training process, their groundbreaking in-community placement program, and the costs and rewards of raising guide dogs.

The Concord Lions were happy to be able to present Chris with a donation to Fidelco to help them continue their vital work and look forward further partnership in our joint mission to help the blind and visually impaired.
