Connellsville Flood Recovery Work

District 14E Lions Alert Team Chairperson Cedric, PDG Bob Mesher, Lion Jim Groff of the Disaster Alert Team for PA and District 14M VDG Brad Geyer are looking for Lions that will help us help the victims of the Connellsville Flood. We are putting together a couple of work weeks and need workers to help. The work has not been finalized but there are many homes that need help.  The two weeks selected to work are April 10th – 15th and May 1st – 6th.  This area is close enough that volunteers could work there during the day and still be home at night. If you are further away housing can be made available. Please contact PDG Bob Mesher at robertmesher@comcast.net or 724-323-5458.

2nd VDG Notes ~ March 2017

Losing our Vision

Ever since Helen Keller asked the Lions to be the knights of the blind, the Lions have helped individuals with vision problems. Vision problems can be corrected with glasses, while some can be corrected through surgery. We have supported this through many ways, by recycling glasses and giving new glasses to individuals. “Dry” Macular Degeneration is an eye problem that slowly removes your vision. There is no specific time frame when your vision will be lost. The “wet” version of this eye problem can be corrected through surgery, if caught in time. Without the research that the Lions help support, this could not be possible. Our PA Lions Eye Research/Sight Conservation Foundation is also assisting in this and other groundbreaking vision research.   read more…
