Ross Carr Memorial Award

We are so proud of our very own PCC Robert Hilliard for receiving the Ross Carr Memorial Award presented at the Florida Lions Eye Bank Installation Dinner. The Ross Carr Memorial Award was established in memory of Lion Ross Carr, a PDG from Nebraska who moved to Naples in 1964 and supported the Eye Bank until his death in 1975. The Ross Carr Award is presented to an Eye Banker who has devoted himself or herself to the precepts of Eye Banking, someone who has quietly worked in the background to maintain a level of excellence for the Florida Lions Eye Bank.
