ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - On Sunday, September 16, 2012, the Atlantic Highlands Lions Club will hold their annual Fall Pancake Breakfast from 8:00 am to Noon, at the Atlantic Highlands Senior Citizen building, located in the Municipal Harbor of Atlantic Highlands.  The net proceeds will benefit Lions projects such as the Camden Eye Center, The Lions New Jersey Eye Bank, Housing and United Services, Inc., and many other Lions sponsored projects around the state.  In addition, the net proceeds will also benefit the Lions club support of various local organizations, service groups that support the citizens of the Borough of Atlantic Highlands.  The Lions Club will also dedicate some of the funds raised to the eye screening service that the Club members provide to the local schools.

This Pancake breakfast is a community event that is for the whole family to participate.  The cost for adults is just $5.00 per person; children age 12 and under just $3.00 per child, and children under 3 are FREE; a most affordable way to give back to our community.  All Families are invited to participate by coming out for a home cooked breakfast and at the same time helping others in our community that are in need.  The Lions will also have a information table set up where you can come by and learn more about what the Lions do and how you might have the opportunity to get involved, so stop by and get your questions answered.  The Atlantic Highlands Lions Club is a chartered organization of the International Association of Lions Clubs.  There are approximately 100 thousand Lions Clubs in 204 countries and or geographic areas, and 1.4 million members worldwide.  Did you know?  The International Association of Lions Clubs is the only non-government organization in the United Nations, as the Humanitarian arm of the UN. 

The Atlantic Highlands Lions Club has embarked on an exciting new initiative which will extensively expand their eye screening services.  The club is now raising funds to purchase a new eye screening camera which can be used not only on children, but adults and seniors as well.  This highly sophisticated camera can diagnose eye conditions and provides a printed report that can be provided to an eye doctor for treatments.  The camera also can self calibrate to the age of the person who is being screened simply by inputting the persons birth date and then the system will screen for the age appropriate eye conditions.  This eye screening camera and the accessory package has a price tag of $11,500.00 so we look to the public to assist us in obtaining this sophisticated state of the art eye screening system.  To learn more, stop by our Lions information table at the pancake breakfast.

The members of the Atlantic Highlands Lions Club invite you to come have breakfast on Sunday, September 16th and support our volunteerism & service to those in need in our community, and our mission of curing preventable vision loss.
