Youth Cabin Maintenance

Posted on September 8, 2016Comments are off

The Fairfax Lions worked hard August and September, making several improvements to our cabin at the Northern Virginia Lions Youth Camp in Boyce, Virginia.  Improvements 1) installed seven, 48×48 inch windows, (2) installed ventilation fan, 3) restored metal roof, 4) removed old stone pavers and stove pipe since new electric baseboard heating was added, (5) installed decorative skirt around cabin perimeter, and 6) initiated staining of exterior.  

Led by Lion Ted Kuriata, several Lions performed these tasks (Scott Dulaney, Mike Greeley, Rob Higginbotham, Mike Schutz, Marty Lockard).  Less than half the building is left to stain, and the plan is to finish before cold weather sets in.

We seek volunteers for (staining exterior) on either:  23-24 September 2016, or 30 September – 1 October 2016.  If any perosns would like to help, please contact Lion Ted Kuriata at:

Sight and Hearing Screening

Lions Sight and Hearing Screening Van

Fairfax Lions participated in the Classic Car Show in downtown Fairfax City on September 5, Labor Day, to provide sight and hearing screening for our community.  Our screening station is a mobile van, one of several owned and operated by Lions in Virginia.


Our services are provided to the community at no charge.  It is through YOUR support of our fund raisers that the Lions are able to serve you.

We screened 20 members of our community and referred several for follow-up exams.  We are pleased many of our neighbors found this service helpful.  Screeners included:  Marty Lockard, Mike Greely, Jeff Root, Brian Laccone, and Gordon Tillery.
