Samuel Magana and Samuel Alejandro Magana won the bicycle raffle Saturday, Sept. 29 at September Saturdays. Eye screenings were also done for them and their family.
The raffle was held to raise money allowing the Lions Club to continue to provide eye care and
glasses to qualifying Douglas Countians. The club also helps support
the Georgia Camp For The Blind in Waycross, GA, that services visually
impaired children and adults ages 6 and up, and the White Cane campaign.
For more information, visit a meeting at Logan's Roadhouse on the first Wednesday of every month at noon to 1 p.m. and/or the third Thursday of every month at 6 to 7:30 p.m.
The next dinner meeting on Thursday, Nov. 21 will feature as speaker the North Georgia Lions Governor, Mark Rice. Visit the website of Lions International at www.lionsclubs.org to see how this service organization, founded by Melvin Jones in 1917, and where Lions
focus on work for the blind and visually impaired, began when Helen Keller addressed the International Convention at Cedar Point, Ohio, on 30 June 1925 and charged Lions to be Knights of the Blind.
