Beautiful San Geronimo Valley

 

  The San Geronimo Valley Lions are proud to introduce you to our small valley and our four villages of Woodacre, San Geronimo, Forest Knolls and Lagunitas.  Our valley is the best kept secret so don’t tell anyone about our pristine Papermill Creek with famous Coho Salmon runs, our gateway to Samuel Taylor State Park and Point Reyes National Seashore, Mount Barnaby fire lookout, and an exceptionally active Lions Club.

West Marin Little League

The San Geronimo Valley Lions helped prepare the Woodacre baseball Field for opening day 2014.  Yes, horray, baseball is coming!  Wow, there were a lot of young parents hard at work, and a lot of old Lions members trying to keep up.  West Marin Little League (WMLL) is alive and healthy in San Geronimo!  Thanks to Jerry Feickert, Dave O’Conner, Dave Puglisi and Mike Smith for cutting blackberry bushes, clearing the infield and hanging signs.

Dave O'Conner picking rocks from the infield.

Mike Smith hates blackberry bushes

Dave Puglisi agrees, but he said he loves Blackberry Pie

 


MARCH AND APRIL, 2014

 Pre-School PediaVision Eye Screening

San Geronimo Valley Lions pre-school eye screening project was a great success.  Over a two week period we screened 142 people, 108 were pre-school students.  Twelve people, 8 pre-school students, were found to have potential problems and were referred to visit an optometrist.  Screening sessions were conducted at Montessori Preschool in Woodacre, San Geronimo Preschool and Fairfax-San Anselmo Preschool.  Additional sessions will be scheduled in the late spring and/or summer.

Happy and Healthy Eyes

    

 

Eyes can be screened as young as 6 months.   

And it only takes less than 60 seconds!
