East Vincent Lion Cubs Collect Coins for Japan

E-mail Print PDF

Two weeks ago, the East Vincent Lion Cubs held a school-wide fundraiser, JOIN for Japan, to raise money for the Red Cross’ efforts to help the victims of the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster. At our meeting last Thursday, the club members counted and rolled the coins. When added to the paper money, the total for the fundraiser was $942.02.  The kids were really excited that they were able to collect so much.

 At their next meeting, they will be weeding the planting beds on our campus, and planning our annual service trip to Manatawny Manor.

Coventry Lions Club Donates $5,000 to KidSight - Virtually!

E-mail Print PDF

Although the club's first meeting of 2011 was snowed out thanks to Mother Nature it did not stop the important business we do.  A motion was made via email that the club should consider a major donation to Vice District Governor Phil Shober's KidSight program.  KidSight is VDG Phil's special 2011-2012 project in which all of the Lions Clubs in Lions District 14P are donating their time and money to purchase four "kits" of special screening equipment to be used for testing pre-school children for eye and hearing imparements.  More specifically, the KidSight is designed to detect Amblyopia or "lazy eye", one of the most common causes of visual impairment in childhood. Amblyopia will lead to loss of sharp vision or blindness in one eye unless it is detected and treated in the preschool years.

The club met "virtually" and held a vote on providing a donation of $5,000 to this very worthy cause.  After a few hours of email exchanges, the "ayes" had it and it was so moved to donate to this worthy cause.  A check was forthcoming to a grateful Vice District Governor.  In Phil's word "this donation along with Coventry's previous $1,380 donation has put our project 'over the top.' I can't thank you enough."

As always, the Coventry Lions Club continues to assist the local community whenever and wherever we can because...

Lions Come to Aide of Injured Senior Citizen

E-mail Print PDF

90 Year old John Runyan of East Coventry took a spill on the wet grass and tumbled down the hill. The result of the fall was a dislocated shoulder and fractured humerus.

Besides having to deal with this injury, John needed a way to help climb the steps from his basement/garage to his living area. A call was made to the Lions, and following the motto "We Serve", a new hand rail was installed the same day.
