October Newsletter

The October 2020 Newsletter is now available for your reading pleasure. Here’s a short excerpt from DG Cathy’s message for the month:

October for us as Lions International members we have a significant focus in Vision Awareness Month, Membership growth month, and Leo membership growth month.
World Sight Day is October 8, 2020, and this day was originally started as part of the Sight First Campaign by our foundation in 2000. Vision has been our primary focus to aid those in need due to blindness and vision impairment that can be corrected. Our organization will continue our work as our population is again and myopia and diabetic retinopathy and vision impairment in the coming decades.
