The Cleghorn Lions Club has once again partnered with the Eau Claire Area School District (ECASD) to do Vision Screening of over 500 four year-old students in the District's 19 Eau Claire 4 Tomorrow (EC4T) sites.  Our screenings at the EC4T sites will be the weeks of December 2 and December 9 and returning on the week of December 16 to catch absentees from the first scheduled visit.  Each student will bring home a letter stating whether they have passed the screening or if we are recommending them to receive a full vision exam by a qualified Optometrist. 

The scrreing has been completed by one of the Cleghorn Lions Club's six members that are certified by Prevent Blindness Wisconsin and uses the Spot Vision Screener, a device produced by Welch Allyn to help quickly and easily detect vision issues.  If you would like more information about Children's Vision Screeing in general, please visit Prevent Blindness Wisconsin's website here.  If you have questions regarding your child's specific screening, you have been asked to cantact Heidi White, the Director of Early Learning at ECASD.

These screenings have been provided at no cost to ECASD and are made possible by the volunteer time and fundraising efforts of the local Lions Clubs in western Wisconsin.

Reminder: Bingo will start again on January 28th, 2020 @ 7 PM at the Town of Pleasant Valley Community Center. Ticket sales start at 6:30 PM.


Congratulations to Lion Frank Neibauer on becoming the latest Cleghorn Lions member to be inducted as a Melvin Jones Fellow!

What is a Melvin Jones Fellowship?

Created in 1973, the fellowship is named for the founder of Lions Clubs International, Melvin Jones. The Melvin Jones Fellowship is recognition of a commitment to humanitarian work. (It is not an award in the tradition of Lions awards presented for specific accomplishments.) The fellowship is an honor given to individuals who contribute the equivalent of $1,000 to LCIF, and persons for whom such donations are made by others. The fellowship is the foundation's highest honor and represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion, and concern for the less fortunate.

Melvin Jones Fellows receive a lapel pin and a personalized wall plaque in honor of their commitment to helping others. This is an international award and Lions members selected for this award will be forever recognized for that honor at Lions International Headquarters.

This year the Cleghorn Lions Club proudly presents the Melvin Jones Fellowship to Frank Neibauer in recognition for his outstanding support to Lions Club and his leadership in many events.
