Mr. Woody concluded the presen-
tation with this closing remark: “In the
next 12 months, we will invest more
than $300,000 in staff and equipment
to make our laboratory state of the art.
We intend to be the new pioneers in
ocular research.”
Tours of the Lions Eye Institute
were offered to guests after the brunch.
The tours gave the guests a full under-
standing of the facility and allowed
them to see the day-to-day activities
that take place. The Anniversary
event was a huge success, and we
are thankful for the encouragement
and support we have been given
over the years.
