Nice day for screenings-sunny and in the 60’s.

Many thanks to the following lions for their hard work, namely Jorge Cortizo (driving), and George Mussari (vision). My apology for anyone missed—let me know about it if I did so.

Additional thanks also go out to Judy Forbes, RN (blood pressure and blood sugar screenings), and Karole Nicholson, Attleboro VNA Marketing Manager for organizing these screenings.

Please call me if you wish to help or learn to use the screening equipment, or are interested in driver training. The next date is December 5 and 6 at the Holiday Festival.

Four pairs of glasses were donated. 8 free concession tickets (max 1 per customer) were given out to individuals screened. I recommend this practice be continued and advertised.

Thanks to the following lions for their hard work, namely Jorge Cortizo and Rick Gravely (driving), and George Mussari (vision). My apology for anyone missed-let me know about it if so. The new Spot Camera was a success, with 3 referrals made for possible vision disorders out of 11 screened.

Additional thanks also go out to once again to Wendy Miller, RN (blood pressure screenings), as well as fellow Lions Mark Ventresco and Jon Modelevsky for allowing the use of their parking lot at Hometowne Auto Repair Shoppe to do the screenings.

Please call me if you wish to help or learn for future events.
