Dr. Ambrose Peterman is Honored for over fifty years of helping the Coventry Lions Club by offering free eye exams and prescription glasses at cost.

Dr. Peterman has been working with the Coventry Lions Club for well over fifty years. In addition, he worked with the Stowe Lions Club in Pottstown. Ambrose (Pete) announced his retirement as an optometrist at the end of September this year.

When schools would contact the Lions Club regarding a child in need of vision care a simple phone call to Ambrose Peterman,O.D. and the child was given an appointment to be shortly followed by an exam and glasses. The only charge to the club was the cost of the materials as the doctor's son, Todd Peterman worked next door as an optician and would prepare the glasses for the child.

The doctor's good will expanded beyond the school's children from disadvantaged families to area senior centers, community centers and basically any entity that worked to help those in need. If someone came to the Lions Club for help with vision problems they were sent to Dr. Peterman to get the help they needed.

Although the club has lost a valuable community resource with the retirement of Dr. Peterman we wish him a long and happy retirement.

On Sunday, May 22nd ten OJR High School Leos and a half dozen Lion Cubs from North Coventry Elementary School ran game stations and an obstacle course at the annual Coventry Woods Festival.

Taylor and Lindsey LaFountain along with Serena Hertzog Kept the visiting kids hopping as they made their way back and forth on the Obstacle Course. Alec Betters helped the youngsters at the Chicken-in-a-Bucket while Raya Pezzillo had the kids feeding the goats at the Beanbag Toss. Alex Moore and Bridgette Bonenberger proved to the attendees that Pigs could fly as they manned the Pigs Parachute Station. Trevor Goodwin and Connor Harlow kept the visitors safe as they stood guard by the Black Bear! Raeann Risko spent the entire Festival at the Volleyball station; most likely the youngster's favorite game as there were full courts all afternoon!

While the Leos and Lion Cubs were in charge of the Obstacle Course and Games, members of the Coventry Lions Club were busy manning the tent that opened visitors' eyes to the many services the Lions Club offers the community. Also, tickets were being sold for the upcoming Chester County Blue Barbecue to be held on June 4th at Wyndsor Farm.
