What a great day we had with the Appalachian Miles for Smiles eye clinic this past Saturday. We had the clinic in the basement of my office and the vision van behind my building. Everyone was screened and wore a mask before being let in because of the pandemic. Pictured are some of the volunteers, Lions Doris Kaifa, Justin Mitchell, Debbie Shipley, Dr. George Winton, Dr. Judaun Allison, and Ed Gibbons. Not pictured is Lions Ken Gough and Steve Campbell. Ken and Steve worked from 8:30 till 12:30. Doris and Debbie worked from 12 to 3. Even Lion Billy Pike showed up for support. We screened about 25 of the applications I had on hand. That caught me up as I was about 40 applications behind. A big thank you to Lion Dr. Judaun Allison and Dr. Dana Grist for working all day and Lion Justin Mitchell for working till 12:30 in the vision van. Of course, the vision van had their 12 volunteers that really put everything in place for us. We have now a good relationship with Appalachian Miles for Smiles Vision Van and I hope to get them back maybe twice a year.
Thank you again for all the volunteers taking your time off on a Saturday. You made the part of Lionism doing what Lions do – We Serve.
