Walk for Sight
Molokai Lions Club News Release
The Molokai Lions Club third annual Walk for Sight on Molokai will take place on Saturday, Sept. 27, Saturday, from 7:30 to 10 a.m. Registration is in front of Kalele Bookstore. Club members urge the community to join them in their multiple treks through Kaunakakai raising money for continued sight programs on Molokai.
All money raised in this event remains on Molokai. The sight programs include offering help to anyone who is underserved in their need for sight or hearing assistance, vision screening for elementary and preschool children, and the retina vision van project of detection for adults. Please contact Lion Linda Mina at 658-6679 or 567-6767.
Coming off a quiet summer, newly elected president Lion Ron Bauman is looking forward to continued community events which start with the Walk for Sight this month and then the Annual Halloween Costume Contest in October. There is hope that the elementary schools will support the return of the Sight is Beautiful Poster Contest for grades K through six. This project does require that the teachers endorse it.
Volunteers are also planning to assist the Dept. of Health in the yearly school vaccination program. The Roar will keep you posted. Residents and island visitors are invited to fellowship with the Lions on the first and third Saturdays at 8 a.m. at Paddlers Inn. The meetings start promptly at 8:30.
