Appreciative Lions thank community for support

Dear Editor,
The Clarkston Area Lions Club is very pleased to thank the Clarkston community for its support of our food booth at the Concert in the Park event on Friday, June 28.
This was a fundraising event for us and was assisted by local sponsors including Vibe Credit Union, Neiman’s Family Market, Culligan Water Systems, Gregg’s Gourmet Café, Clarkston Area Chamber of Commerce, City of the Village of Clarkston, Independence Township, Ortonville Lions Club, Weingartz Home and Garden, Kroger stores, Sam’s Club, Pete’s Coney, Ace – Sashabaw, Speedway Gas, and Rudy’s Market.
Our booth had a complete “sell out,” which will assist the Clarkston Area Lions Club to continue to serve our local community, as we use 100 percent of donations and funds raised to go toward program services, no funds for administrative expenses.
Lions clubs provide sight, hearing and diabetes awareness programs and also support local community needs such as our assistance for the surveillance system for Depot Park.
Our local free Project Kidsight program offers monthly sight screening for young children at the Independence Township Library and at various events.
We screen over 1,000 children each year and have found that about 15 percent of those children screened have a potential eye problem. Our camera and computer system has enabled our club to lead all Lions clubs in the entire state of Michigan in Kidsight screening.
Please remind parents of this free Kidsight screening.
We thank the Clarkston community for its continued support.
