Largo Lions Club member Carolyn Tinney, G. Rick Grisenthwaite, his daughter and Tinney, Grisenthwaite’s new guide dog who is named after Carolyn, is shown.
LARGO – Tinney, a Southeastern Guide Dog the Largo Lions Club sponsored, graduated Aug. 18. Tinney was named for Lion Carolyn Tinney, who has more than 25 years as a member of the Largo Lions Club.

During her time as a Lion, Carolyn Tinney has held many officer positions, including club president, and has continued to be active in sight programs, such as Vision Care and collecting and sorting of eye glasses.

G. Rick Grisenthwaite in Perry, Georgia, is thrilled to have Tinney as a new member of his family. Grisenthwaite spent 20 days at Southeastern Guide Dogs in Palmetto, arriving alone, but leaving as a team with Tinney.

“Losing your sight is a confidence destroyer, and Tinney is my confidence builder,” he said.

The club meets on the first and third Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. at Tailgaters, 13847 Walsingham Road. For more information, email info@largolionsclub.org or visit largolionsclub.org.
