Well done! Fellow Lions!

Because of YOU . . . we were able to: 
* Provide needed financial aid to: LARC; Guide Dog Foundation; Hadley Institute for the Blind.
*  Donate approximately 2,000 pairs of eyeglasses to Lions International to be reconditioned and given to those in need;
*  Provide necessary eye care for those with vision needs.
AND . . . that's what LIONISM is all about!!!

Used glasses collection locations

    The Calumet City Lions collect used eyeglasses, which are reconditioned and then used to help those less fortunate.
   Local drop-off locations include: America's Best, Bernadin Manor, Calumet City Hall, Calumet City Library, Four Eyes, Lens Crafters, Midwest Eye Care, Our Lady of Knock, Sand Ridge Fitness Center, St. Andrew's, Wittam Eyecare.
   If you have used glasses to donate or know of a potential drop-off location, contact Eyeglass Collection Chairman Katie Keilman (708/868-1026).
Between the Lions . . .
   Condolences to Lions John and Krista Boehm on the passing of their mother/grandmother, Dorothy Rose Boehm. Please keep Mrs. Boehm and the family in your thoughts and prayers.        
 Do you have some news to share with the club? An interesting vacation? New addition to the family? Sports achievements, awards? Special memory? A favorite recipe? Items to sell/trade? Contact Lion Denny and let's get the word out on the website.

I'm Curious:
Just wondering? -- Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks?
Just wondering?  --  If it's true that we're here to help others, then what are the others here for?
Just wondering?  -- Is there ever a day when mattresses are NOT on sale?
