                                                   WHITE CANE DAYS

Due to COVID 19, White Cane Days for 2020 have not been scheduled. The 2019 fundraising drive raised several hundred dollars to help pay for eye exams and glasses. The Club regularly pays for exams and eyeglasses for students in three Elementary and one Middle Schol on the Key Peninsula.

Social time beings at 6:00 pm followed by dinner at 6:30.  The meeting officially begins at 7 with introductions and a guest speaker.  Speakers range from politicians reporting on government activities to business people explaining the complexities of their enterprises or to Lions explaining special projects of the Club or District.  Some speakers tell of interesting events in their own lives.  Every speaker brings an interesting story or challenge that you will find enjoyable or learn from.

Key Peninsula Parks
On November 17, 2018, the KP Lions publicly unveiled a bronze plaque commemorating dedication of the Key Peninsula Lions Memorial Amphitheater in memory of Lion Rhys Wood. It was placed at what is commonly referred to as the T-Ball Field or the lower field. Club members played a significant roll in development of the field and annually sponsor a T-Ball team.
 
Smoke Alarms
In partnership with the Key Peninsula Fire District and the Red Cross, KP Lions Club donates smoke and CO detectors as part of a program to assure that all homes have protection to provide early warning in case of fire or CO emissions. Applications for alarms are availble through the Fire District office in Key Center.
 
Camp Leo
Some of our members have toured Camp Leo and as a result will encourage the club to help fund scholarships in the future. For a better understanding of what Camp Leo is about, click the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idl44Js67LY, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idl44Js67LY.
 
ADOPT A ROAD  
As part of the Club's Environmental Program, we have adopted a one mile stretch of Olson Road.
 Our efforts help to maintain the beauty of the Key Peninsula.

Lions Eyeglass Recyling Center

Members regularly visit the Center where they perform tasks from sorting, washing and drying glasses to reading prescriptions in preparation for missions to other countries. The Club has decided to set a day regularly to take over the Center for a couple of hours to wash and dry glasses.
