Recently our neighborhood Lions Club has been hard at work screening area students for potential vision and hearing problems — one of the major community service projects taken on by the organization.

Over the course of three days in February, 15 volunteers used the mobile Lions Health Screening Unit and and checked the hearing and vision of 746 children in three area schools.

The schools visited were our own Olympic Hills Elementary, St. Luke Catholic and Shoreline Christan.

"The general consensus of opinion in our Club is that this is one of the most important things we do all year," said Joan Dickey, a member of the club.
