The Fairfax Lions Club Board of Directors held an all-day meeting led by an expert facilitator. We examined evolving demographics and service needs in our community, and cultural changes that affect the Club’s capability to serve the community.  Discussions were lively and very productive. A  series of strategic actions were agreed upon to make our club stronger, incentivize service and social interaction, and increase club membership.  Our objective is to restructure Club processes to sustain outstanding service to our commnity, and create an environment that welcomes a diverse membership of all ages looking to serve those in need.

On May 3rd, at the Fairfax City Senior Center, Fairfax Lions offered free vision screening.  The vision screening was part of the kick-off events to Older Americans Month run by Fairfax City at the Senior Center.

The Lions were very pleased 14 people participated in this screening, including Fairfax City Mayor David Meyer.  Of the 14, five persons were referred to an optometrist for vision care.  It only takes a few minutes to be screened; Fairfax Lions are pleased to offer this community service.
