Jazz On Bourbon and Brock Tillman Crowned at Savannah Royal

by Debbie Graham

SAVANNAH, Tenn. - The 41st annual Savannah Lions Club Walking Horse Royal was held on June 20, 2008, at the Hardin County Fairgrounds in Savannah, Tenn. The event was sponsored by the Savannah Lions Club. Proceeds from the show benefited the many projects of the club. The club purchases eyeglasses and supports the Mid-South Eye Clinic for those in need. The club also provides sight assistance for more than 50 clients in Hardin County, sponsorship of individuals with eye disabilities to the Mid-South Eye Clinic, a vision screening and evaluation program for third and fifth grade elementary students and sponsorship of the Mobile Lions Club van for vision screening.  The club also sponsors a locally selected young boy to go to Boy’s State and a young girl to go to Girl’s State. During the Christmas season, the club aids the Hardin County Ministerial Association with their food distribution project.

Co-chairmen Neal Smith and Joey Franks as well as the dedicated Lions Club show committee once again produced a successful event. A large crowd of spectators was in attendance while trainers and amateur exhibitors treated them to a night of entertainment with many talented contenders performing at the show. L.M. Murphy judged the 27 classes. Crystal Rich, a member of the Mounted Patrol at Pickwick Lake, presented the colors on Master Copy.

In the final class of the evening, the Walking Horse Stake class, Jazz On Bourbon and Brock Tillman claimed the Savannah Lions Club Walking Horse Royal tricolor ribbon for Danny and Lisa Palmer.
