On Sep.28, 2014, the Andalusia Lions Club held it’s inaugural Beepball Game [softball for the visually impaired] for the Extreme Campers at Blue Lake Methodist Camp. The Andalusia Lions Club was also the sponsor of the new Lions VIP [Visually Impaired Persons] Club which was chartered on that date.

Besides the Lions Club, there were several people in the community that assisted with the Beepball game. The club would like to thank Perry Dillard and Dr. Laura Carpenter for being managers for the two teams. Probate Judge Ben Bowden was the head umpire assisted by Sim Bowden and Bill Patton [a Lions member].

Several members of the Pleasant Home ladies’ softball team helped by guiding team members to and from home plate when they batted and to their fielding positions. Also, making up

the pitching and catching battery for both teams were Emily Byrd and Erin Byrd Roland [Pleasant Home alumnae who are attending Faulkner University].
