Preschool Vision Screening (PSVS) for YMCA-Head Start children.

Spearheaded by the persistent dream of Emmitsburg Lion President Cliff Sweeney, the Francis Scott Key, Thurmont, Middletown, and Emmitsburg Lions embarked on a collaborative campaign of preschool vision screenings for children throughout Frederick County's YMCA-Head Start centers. Participating Lions volunteers from each of these clubs served as one unified team as they conducted amblyopia and depth perception screenings for 274 children in 7 of Frederick area's early learning facilities. District 22-W, Region III's PSVS cooridinator Lion John Hopson, himself a volunteer in this endeavor, was elated with the success of Lions clubs working together. We Serve.

On October 8, 2014 our morning screenings were conducted at the Children's Center in Walkersville and that of our afternoon at the YMCA-Head Start Center in Frederick. Photos below were taken that date of FSK Lions John, Lynn, and Duane, Middletown Lion John, and Emmitsburg Lions Cliff, Sharon, Marilyn, Jenni, Bill, and Joe, with Emmitsburg Lion Rachel taking the photos. The children's faces are not in view of the camera, but trust me they were adorable. Additional Lions who participated in this collaborative effort through the months of September and October, 2014 were Lions PDG Paul Cannada and Joyce of Thurmont, Lions Toni and Paul from FSK, and Lion Mary from Emmitsburg.
