Red Cross Super Volunteer and Town of Niagara Lion Mike Hoplight was the guest speaker at the Grand Island Lions dinner meeting held Oct. 28 at the Buffalo Launch Club. Hoplight described the plight of the over 6,000 homeless veterans in the area and how the program he is a part of helps make their lives a little bit more comfortable. The Grand Island Lions Club responded by donating bags of health care items for the Red Cross program.
