Lions Screen Vision of Pre-School Children

Posted on October 7, 2019Comments are off

The Fairfax Lions Club completed a vision screening event at the Main Street Child Development Center in Fairfax on Oct 7.  Fifty pre-school children age 3 to 5 were screened, and ten were referred for a complete eye exam.  One of the referrals could not be screened after four failed attempts because the boy’s pupils were too small.  A 20% referral rate is quite high for pre-school children.  It is a privilege to be able to help identify possible vision problems in young persons.

The Fairfax Lions thank the donors who took their time to give the gift of life-saving blood!

On Sep 23, 2019, the Red Cross collected 14 units of blood at the blood drive we sponsored; all should know, every donation makes a difference!

The demand for donated blood in our nation’s hospitals is consistently high – hospitals need about 40,000 donors every single day! YOU can make a life saving difference.

Thank You for Supporting Our July 4th Food Stand

Posted on July 6, 2019Comments are off

At the City of Fairfax Independence Day parade, our Fairfax neighbors bought 171 hot dogs and 240 beverages at our food stand.  All proceeds from our fund raisers go to our charity programs in our local community.  The proceeds from July 4th make it possible, for example, for the Fairfax Lions Club to provide eye exams and new prescription glasses to 10 persons in our community.   The Lions THANK YOU for supporting our commumunity service!

AND, we delivered all unsold hot dogs to The Lamb Center to help our neighbors there!
