The Atlantic Highlands Lions have been serving their community for 90 years! Some of the service accomplishments of the Lions include the construction of the section of State Highway 36 that goes through Atlantic Highlands and the center median, known as Memorial Parkway, which the Lions raised $10,000.00 for this project to honor the Veterans of our community. They worked with local, state, and national leaders to have the Atlantic Highlands Harbor built. The Lions conduct annual eye screenings for children and have assisted those in need with corrective eyewear for the last few decades. They assisted a few individuals in the community who were in financial need to obtain sight saving surgery. The Lions have also participated in Disaster Relief efforts around the world through the Lions International Foundation (LICIF) as well as here in our local community with the Nor’easter Strom of 1992, Hurricane Irene, and recently, Hurricane Sandy with a donation of $1,000.00 of foods and supplies to our local food Pantry. The Lions most recent accomplishment has been to partner with the Atlantic Highlands PBA to raise $11,00.00 for the Lions sight conservation services, which included the purchase of one of the most sophisticated eye screening cameras on the market. This new device is called the Spot 2 Eye Screener and can be used to screen individuals from the age of 6 months to over 100 years, and provides a full range of screening results including medical measurements that Ophthalmologists (eye Medical doctors) can rely on for the most accurate diagnoses. Since, October 2013 thru March 2014 well over 800 students attending Atlantich Highlands Elamentry, Mother Tarecia Elamentry(St. Agnes), and Henry Udson high Scchool have been screened with the New Spot two eye Screener Camera, approximately 50 Students need referral for further medical eye sight attention. These FREE eye Screenings not only help out local Students have the Opportunity for a more improved Educational Opportunities but also allowed our school district to comply with new NJ regulations related to eye screenings.
