Wilson Lions accepting used glassesby jmaloni
Lions World Sight Day is Oct. 10. Lions International President Wayne A. Madden notes that, since 1998, Lions World Sight Day has been held each October to focus attention on eliminating preventable blindness and improving sight.
The Wilson Lions Club operates four eyeglass collection sites in the Village of Wilson. Gathering thousands of donated eyeglasses means eventually helping thousands in need of glasses throughout the world. The Wilson Lions encourage people to donate their used eyeglasses at any one of the Lions eyeglasses collection sites or bring to them the 7 p.m. Lions Halloween party on Oct. 31 at the Wilson No. 1 firehall, 250 Young St.
The Wilson Lions Club has 38 members and meets on the third Monday of the month. For more information, contact President Bernie Leiker at 716-751-4078.
