Vision Screening Season
August is when everyone is getting ready for school to start again. Ohio has a Tax Free sales weekend this weekend, and Lions are doing Preschool Vision Screenings again. We started the season this year at Five Points Head Start in Akron. Stow Munroe-Falls and Cuyahoga Falls Lions have been screening at the Educational Services Center on Washington Ave in Cuyahoga Falls.

Tallmadge Lions Welcome Pilot Dog Recipient
At our July 21st meeting retired school teacher, published freelance author and photogropher Mary Keck spoke to the club. Her talk was very interesting, since she is a first time Pilot Dog recipient. Mary has lost her vision to a disease late in life, but has done a wonderful job adjusting with the help of 'Sir Charles', aka Chuck her pilot dog. Members had lots of question for her, and the club presented a check for $10,000.00 to PDG Lion Jay Gray, Executive Director of Lions Pilot Dogs in Columbus Ohio to cover the cost of training of another Pilot Dog and it's recipient (the new owners need training too!)
