Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects - including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.

Vision Screening

The Pine Tree Spring Hill Lions now has the Texas approved eye screening charts. They were donated by Carla Finlay and Susan Chamberlain in memory of Charlie Skidmore.

These are available for any club that has Texas certified vision screeners.

Please contact Lion Bill Ison, 817 614-8614 if you need to use the screening charts.
