Members of the Kent Lions Club recently visited Columbus to learn how a pilot dog is trained to assist the blind.
The Kent Lions, who have a history of supporting sight-related programs, have sponsored 58 dogs for Pilot Dogs of Ohio via scholarships totaling more than $250,000.
Jeff Coffee, a member of the Kent Lions, said members also were given the opportunity to let a guide dog lead them through downtown Columbus.
"Let me tell you, it was an enlightening experience," Coffee said.
