A group of Altoona Lions Club members is shown at the Beacon Lodge Camp for the Blind, near Newton Hamilton, circa 1969. The Altoona Lions in the photo had just completed building a metal storage shed, shown in the background, for the lodge to use in its daily operations. The photo was taken by Lion Herman Nagle, who also worked on the project that day. In the photo are (from left): Lions John Skurner, Walter Hollenback, Roland Musser, Joseph Soltis and Fernando Valdes. Hollenback donated countless hours over the years to support Lions’ sight activities, especially Beacon Lodge. Skurner, Hollenback, Soltis and Nagle are all past presidents of the Lions Club. The photo was submitted by Herman Nagle of Altoona.
