MIDDLETOWN, NJ – Members of the Middletown Twp. Lions Club Eye Screening Team – the ‘Knights of Sight’ – recently screened the eyes of 100 pre-school and kindergarten students at New Monmouth Elementary School, Middletown.
The specially-trained volunteer team travels to district schools with cameras designed to detect common eye ailments. Results are sent to medical doctors for interpretation. Preventing blindness is a major initiative of Lions International. Posing with cameras in hand are Lions Craig Finnegan (far left) and Al Siano (far right). They are joined, left to right, by Lions Rich LaBarbera, Beverly Bova Scarano, School Nurse Eileen Gavin, and Tom Mahon. Several ‘baby Lions’ also made appearances.
