The East Coventry School. led by the  Lion Cubs, held a food drive during the month of November. Foods collected in the drive were used to supplement the Food Basket Deliveries at Thanksgiving time. Over 300 items were collected and packaged into delivery boxes.

A turkey raffle fund raiser held through October until early November helped to raise the funds to pay for the needed food items from GIANT. There were fourteen winning tickets were drawn at the November 12th Club Meeting. Winners could claim turkeys from the GIANT store. The turkeys ranged in weight from 15 to 20 pounds.

The Lions Club will be making deliveries again at Christmas time and Easter.

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...
