Twenty six Lions volunteers screened 567 students for hearing and visual acuity this October using the Health Screening Unit from SC Lions Charitable Services (SCLCS). We screened the entire 7th grade in Oakridge Middle School and the entire 3rd and 5th grade at Griggs Road and Kinard Elementary schools.
In addition, this year we had our first screenings with our own PediaVision (SPOT) cameras chaired by Lion David Allan. The River Hills Lions scanned an additional 125 students in kindergarten and 1st grades bringing the total to 692 students screened at Griggs Road and Kinard.
Our twenty six 26 volunteers worked 126 hours over for days. Special thanks to John Richardson who covered all shifts and Chair, Lion Dona Van Leer all for this most important and function of our River Hills Lions Club.
