Weare Blind hiker to speak to Lions Club

He will arrive at the library to speak about his inspirational life thus far. At 22 years old, he lost his vision and decided to hike every 4,000-foot mountain in the state. He accomplished his goal in 2012 and 2013 and is willing to share his story with the community.
