SERVICE PROJECTS

The collection of eyeglasses is an ongoing event. Look for the yellow mailbox at Stop and Shop and smaller boxes at all the eye doctor's offices, Chez Delila's, Town Hall, Founder Hall, Parks and Rec, Fairfield County Bank at Danbury Road. These are collected and sent off to be cleaned read and packed to be used by eye doctors and Lions in third world countries.

We will be doing eye screening for adults and children at the RVNA Health Day on April 21st. We hope to see you there. There is an opthamologist there all day that reads the reports and talks to you if you have a problem. Remember that we can do pre-school children these days.

A graduating high school student is selected from hundreds of applications for a scholaship by our committee in May. The name is announced at Awards Night in June. In July the winner and parents attend our Dinner meeting and receive the scholarship check.

October finds the Lions hosting an ITALIAN DINNER for the seniors at Ballard Green & Congrgate Housing in the recreation Room. The Catoonah Jazz Band provides entertainment for the evening where the seniors dance with the Lions and enjoy singing. It's a most enjoyable evening for all.

On Friday evening of Fall In Love With Ridgefield weekend, the Lions take part in the HAYRIDE in Ballard Park in conjunction with Parks and Rec and the Boys and Girls Club. It is indeed a fun evening.

December keeps us very busy with service projects. Gifts are bought for children of a poor family who we receive from Social Services. We are given the ages and sex of each child. The purchases are wrapped and delivered to Social Services to deliver. 

The first Friday of Decmber we do Postcards For The Troops at the Lounsbury House during Holiday Stroll. These cards are pictures of landmarks in town which are written by those who stop in and then the Lions mail them off to all Ridgefielders that are in the Armed Forces. This is all FREE for the public. The hardest part is getting current names and addresses of those serving their country.  This year they will be sent to veteran's in a local veteran's hospital. Stop by on 11/30/18 to write a card.

The second Saturday of the month finds us ringing Salvation Army bells at Stop and Shop. Dunkin Donuts on Danbury Road and Steve's Bagels. All money collected stays in town to help those in need.  Look for us on December 15th this year.

At our December Holiday Party we bring unwrapped gifts for children that are delivered to children at a poor parish in Bridgeport that have very little.
