JOHNSTOWN – The Greater Johnstown Lions Club was a sponsor of the Fulton-Montgomery Community College’s American Sign Language Club’s deaf movie and show event on April 13.

Deaf actress Heidi Branch held a workshop for Fulton-Montgomery Community College American sign language students followed by a showing of her comedic movie “Hedy and Heidi: The Lost Sisters.”

Branch then discussed the movie and her career using sign language. An interpreter, sponsored by the Greater Johnstown Lions Club, translated Branch’s responses, so that the hearing members of the audience could understand the dialog.
