Let Us Roar for a Moment!

Our various fundraising efforts are dedicated to sight and hearing; to diabetes education ( because diabetes often leads to vision loss) and to measles eradication (because measles can lead to hearing loss.) 

We have two bank accounts. One is small money raised by our membership fees and from our in-club hilarity. This is used for administrative costs like postage and uniforms, etc.

The other account is for our Sight and Hearing and Charitable programs. 100% of the money raised from the public goes to these specified projects. Our books are audited yearly to make certain this is true. 

**We hold two regular meetings a month, as well as a Board of Directors meeting once a month. At these meetings we hear speakers on a wide variety of topics, including diabetic eye care, White Cane Users Safety Day, The Mayhew Foundation, Bugles Across America, Fidelco Seeing Eye Dogs, etc. 

**We brought in four new members last year and plan to double our membership in 2016 - 17.. 
**We hold Christmas and Easter pancake breakfasts at the Soda Shoppe, where kids may visit with Santa and have their free photo taken. This money goes to Sight and Hearing.
**Members bring canned or dry goods to each meeting for the Twin Rivers Food Pantry. We also provide monetary gifts at Thanksgiving and Christmas. We hold food drives during the year to help stock the pantry cupboards.
