Fairgrounds Team and Foothill Lions Visit Folsom Prison

Part of the Fairgrounds’ team spent the morning at Folsom State Prison with members of the Foothill Lions Club visiting the “Folsom Project for the Visually Impaired,” a project that offers services to the visually impaired and helps rehabilitate inmates at Folsom Prison. Since its Inception, 3 million pairs of glasses have been donated and distributed in the US and across the globe. A huge thank you to our local Lions Club for inviting us and for all their work (and our local community’s donations) to this partnership!
