This past July, Kumar Chopra was inducted as the incoming President of the Lake St. Louis Lions Club, where his volunteer leadership is worth noting in our community. The activities and impact of the Lions Club starts where we live - in our community. The long history of supporting programs and fighting blindness is epic.  More importantly, taking a leading role in our region to provide vision screening opportunities and support programs for young children through KidSight - a grassroots partnership that will have profound impact on many children.  

Kumar is an individual who our community-at-large should have the opportunity to become familiar, and so... he is today’s Hometown Face.
