Vision Screening Update

The Club has been busy with vision screening the last month or so.  We are fortunate to have the assistance of the Glacier Valley School Nurse, who single handedly screens every one of her children!  This year she screened 345 students with 37 referrals!  It's because of people like Stephanie that allow us to reach so many young kids.

In addition to Glacier Valley School, we've participated in many health fairs throughout SE Alaska.  These are the figures we've done so far this year:

Juneau Health Fair, March 9
Lions Becky, Tommy, Allen, and Mike N.
Screened 26, referred 11
Trained 2 new Lions on the machine.

Hoonah Health Fair, April 6
Hoonah Volunteers provided this screening (A big thanks to Carol and Judy)
Screened 37, referred 14

Gustavus Health Fair, April 13
Lion Tommy and his daughter
Screened 40, referred 12

Yakutat Health Fair, April 20
Lions Neil and Sue
Screened 47, referred 13

Next week the vision screener goes with Lion Allen to Petersburg where he'll spend a couple days screening school kids and participating in the Health Fair. 

Thanks to all who volunteer their time to do this. 

Lion Mike N.
