The Irving Noon Day Lions Club recently served the community by Conducting a low Vision Clinic for IISD school children. This volunteer activity occurred at the YMCA in Irving on Irving Blvd as a joint effort between the Irving Evening Lions Club and the noon club. Completion of the Lions club service project is a benefit to the community because it provides needed eyeglasses to the kids who fail the eye examinations given by the school nurses and this enables them to see better in class and improve their grades. There were 50 school children given eyeglass prescriptions at the clinic. The Lions Club will deliver the glasses to the school by the end of October to be given to the students.
The Irving Noon Day Lions Club has 41 members and meets on Wednesdays at noon at Los Lupe’s Restaurant in Irving Mall. Lions clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
