Lions get serious with addiction discussion

The Vermilion Lions Club had two very special guests at their meeting on March 4th as community activists Kim Eberle and Bob Geib stopped by for a frank discussion on addiction. Both Kim and Bob host a community center downtown Vermilion and are very involved in the Heroin interdiction programs in our community.

The discussion informed Lions members on the epedmic purportions of youth that have fallen prey to both perscribtion opiates and street Heroin that soon follows. Both Kim and Bob are working with county and local authorities, plus other Volunteer groups as well, to not only offer support to famlies dealing with this crisis, but to the users themselves as they assist in finding avenues of treatment.

Vermilion Lions Club is very supportive of these efforts and are tremendously grateful to have volunteers like Kim and Bob helping to better our community, especially when dealing with such a overwhelming set of circumstances that drug abuse bring.
