All of you are aware that the primary responsibility for members of the International Lions is to support Sight and Hearing related issues. This support can be provided in many ways. The Clubs in Culpeper County, Culpeper MidDay and Club 92 as an example procured 156 pair of eye glasses and 17 Hearing Aids for qualified applicants last fiscal year. Any child in Culpeper County is automatically qualified as the motto of those clubs is “no child in Culpeper County in need of eye glasses will not go unserved." All of the Lions Clubs in our local area, i.e., Culpeper, Rappahannock, and Fauquier Counties participate in this effort. The degree of participation is dependent upon financial resources and membership availability. The beginning of the school year marks the beginning of the Sight and Hearing Testing program for students of all of the schools desiring to participate in this effort. Screening is accom-
plished with portable devices for the testing of Sight and Hearing and with the well-known Sight and Hearing van. This year, under the leadership of the local Zone Chairman, Mrs. Lynn Garver, assisted by the Presidents of the individual clubs, Culpeper Mid-Day, 92, Rappahannock, Warrenton, Warrenton Sunrise and Remington, the 175 Members tested 5,885 school children and adults. Of those tested, 330 were referred to various ophthalmologist in their particular area and 312 were referred for additional testing by qualified Hearing professionals. The majority of the Hearing referrals were for the older folks participating in the testing program. Sight and Hearing assistance is but only one area where your local Lions Club members make a difference. Scholarships for graduating students, contributions to various organizations throughout the local area to other nonprofit organizations such as SAFE, Fire and Rescue, the Food Closet, Free Dental Clinic, Soap Box Derby, Hospice and many others is a partial listing of the causes supported by the various clubs.
