White Cane Day was successful. With 7 Lions participating we collected almost enough to donate our usual amount to our white Cane agencies--Ed Lindsey Industries for the Blind, Leader Dogs for the Blind, World Services for the Blind, Middle Tennessee Lions Sight Service, Tennessee School for the Blind, Tennessee School for the Deaf, and Learning Ally (a.k.a., Readings for the Blind and Dyslexic). Thank you, Houston County, for supporting these very important organizations through our White Cane Donations.
One of our Lions projects that non-Lions frequently ask about is our glasses collection. Boxes for used glasses are scattered throughout the county--including Piggly-Wiggly, the hospital, Southernaire, the library, Save-a-Lot. Please deposit used glasses, including both prescription and "readers", used cell phones, and printer cartridges in those boxes. They are recycled for use by those who truly need them. If you want to see how, go to www.lionsclubs.org and check out some of the ways your "trash" changes someone else's life.
