Lions Get Inside View of Magnate Don Brown Mansion

 ABOVE:  Terri Pabon, private secretary to millionaire inventor Don Brown, presented a fascinating program and slide presentation about the magnate and his incredible mansion on the lakefront west of Vermilion known as Waterwood Estate.  Forty-four Lions and guests were intrigued by the story and views of this unique property.  Many thanks to Lion Ben Norton for arranging this spectacular program!
