The Sayreville Club participated in Sayreville Day in September. The District 16D Eye Mobile was on hand to provide sight screening to those who chose to participate. Our sight conservation activities are active throughout the year. We recycle used eyeglasses and hearing aids and provide assistance to those who need eyeglasses but can't afford them.
Our Spring 2016 Pancake Breakfast was held on Palm Sunday from 8:00AM until Noon at the Sayreville War Memorial High School on Washington Road. Proceeds support community projects. Many thanks to the Girl Scouts who helped make the breakfast a success. We appreciate their assistance.
Also, thanks to the community for supporting this project and also our White Cane Sale which was held just prior to our Spring breakfast at ShopRite of Parlin and will be held again on Octobeer 13rh and 14th of 2016. Special thanks to ShopRite Management for allowing us to run this program for two times this year. The Club is sponsoring the Lions International Peace Poster contest in the Middle School again this year and
The Sayreville Lions Club eyeglass recycling program has the goal of promoting eyeglass collection and recycling to meet the demand for quality eyeglasses in developing nations. A collection mailbox is provided at the rear of the Borough Hall on Main Street in Sayreville. The Sayreville/South Amboy Girl Scout Troup 80835 is also collecting prescription eyewear and non-prescription sunglasses as a community service project with OneSight and Lions Clubs International. Drop offs can be made at the places designated by the Scouts or at the Lions collection mailbox.
Lions International has recognized the Sayreville Club for its leadership and growth. The Club provided three cash awards and a $1,600 scholarship to the members of the 2016 graduating class of SWMHS selected by the faculty. The Club also contributed $4,000 to various State approved sight projects during the 2015-16 fiscal year. These contributions are in addition to the high school awards and other support provided to the community throughout the year totalling $5,200. Descriptions of the State approved projects are available on the NJ State Lions website http://www.njlions.org/state.
