This is a District wide event and is open to all clubs. Mark your calendars and invite your members to come and help with this project. This is a great opportunity to meet and catch up with other Lions from the District. With a additional opportunity to gain credit for the R.O.A.R. and P.R.I.D.E. programs by notifying your club secretary of your attendance.

Please email Matt Soeldner, Easton Lions Club Secretary,  (fozzie215@yahoo.com) or Nate, Eyeglass Recycling Chair, (nate@natehelge.com).

Looking forward to your help on the 11th and if there is enough Lions in attendance to help we will start separating glasses between metal and plastic frames for recycling. If any clubs are looking to wash eye glasses as a club event, twinning or zone project we are willing to travel if you have the place.
