Saturday April 6th was a Wonderful Day to see the return of the Waushara County Blue Ribbon Kids Day to Parkside School after the last one in 2019.  So many activities and exhibits for the kids and their families abounded.  The Wild Rose Lions Club was, of course, there and doing Spot Vision Screenings of eyes.  The Spot Vision Camera provides a screen of multiple vision issues with just an instant view into the lens by the subject.  Absolutely no invasive action.  We screened well over 110 mostly kids but some adults as well.  Kudos to the organizers for resurecting this event!!

Pictured (L-R) are screener Lions Genny Colligan, Sandy Batten, Betty Reimer and Dave Przekurat 


It was no April Fools Joke as Dennis Urban of Almond won our latest Gun Raffle on April 1st.  He was so pleased to get the Winchester Super X Pump SxP 12 Ga Shotgun generously donated by the Trading Post in Mt Morris.  Dennis is a proud member of the Wild Rose American Legion and we salute him.

Membership in the Lions is a fulfilling way to give to the local community as well as fellowship with other like-minded members of the community. 

Early detection and treatment of vision disability needs to priority number one. Experts say that roughly 80 percent of what a child learns in school is information that is presented visually.  So good vision is essential for students of all ages to reach their full academic potential.  Also, a child with an undetected or untreated vision problem is more likely to develope social or emotional problems and fall behind in academic achievement. Fifty percent of behavior problems in schools are due to vision issues.

After the age of 8 there are a number of vision issues that cannot be corrected.

Spot is a fast, portable, easy to use screening system designed to quickly detect several vision issues in children as early as 6 month to adult.  The device captures in one second or less, which makes screening efficient and especially effective with non-verbal children.

Spot's sophisticated technology can quickly detect the indication of near-sightedness, far-sightedness, unequal refractive power, blurred vision, eys structure problems, pupil size deviations, and eye misalignment.
