David Allen is our 2016 Lion of the Year

Officers of the River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Club have been heard to say that Lion David Allen is a “yes” man. According to outgoing Club President, Len Fleet, Allen earned that reputation because he always says “yes” when asked to serve on a committee or participate in volunteer opportunities. Allen’s primary focus is on Kidsight, a state-of-the-art program that performs free periodic eye screenings to children in learning facilities throughout the area, checking for 6 potential eye problems. In recognition for all his efforts David Allen was named Lion of the Year at the Club’s June dinner meeting. Typical of David, his address was solely a solicitation for more Kidsight helpers.
