Other Calendars & Meetings
Lions Donate to Guiding Eyes
On August 3, 2019, two members of our club traveled to the Yorktown headquarters of the premier guide dog school in the country Guiding Eyes.
They presented our check for $1,000 to the nonprofit which this year will be graduating 170 guide dog teams. The dog and its training are given without charge to the blind individual, thanks to grants and donations from Lions Clubs..
Vision Services Shows Appreciation
Members of several Lions Clubs were treated to a luncheon and tour of the Vacation Camp for the Blind in Rockland County on Aug. 4. Our three=person delegation presented our club's check for $1,000.
We are Ready for Vision Screenings
The latest version of the clinical camera for screening children from 6 months to 18 has arrived. It will be shared by the Sound Shore Clubs, and was funded by 3 of the clubs, two grants from Lions International Foundations, and a woman's group at St. John's Episcopal Church in Larchmont. Six members of our club are now trained to use it: Diane, Phil, Peggy, Sheelah, Anne, and Lynn. Teams of two and three screeners are currently screening nursery schools in the Sound Shore area.
Nationally last year, Lions screened 57,000 children for amblyopia and made 8,000 referrals.
Destination of Recycled Eyeglasses
On May 11, Phil, Diane and Jag took thousands of eyeglasses collected by the Sound Shore Lions to Trenton and the Lions Recyling Center. They helped with the massive project of cleaning, sorting, testing, designating prescriptions and filling orders from humanitarian organizations around the world.
Approximately 1100 of the glasses were presented to LM Lion Nancy Borzain for individuals in the Dominican Republic through VHP (Voluntry Health Program) where she is a member.
