Lending a Helping Hand

Lions Ken Hoard, Marcus Jensen and Ron Leach spent a recent day transporting, assembling and delivering a new picnic table to our local library.  Thanks for stepping up and volunteering guys.

 

When It's Great to be a Lion

On the morning of May 17, six Millington Lions visited Millington’s and St. Paul’s first grade classrooms. This is an annual visit with our first graders where the Lions conduct an American flag education presentation and attempt to answer questions about our flag. The Lions also gift an American flag to each student. The event is thoroughly enjoyed by the Lions, as each participating member relishes the interaction with our young citizens (and are sometimes amused as well). Pictured are (L-R) Lions Ron Leach, Sam Licavoli, Dean Bedtelyon, Larry Warner, Todd Ostrander and R.G. Barnum. Nationally, Lions Clubs sponsor poster contests, essay contests and other events that benefit America’s youth.

 

Thank You Again for your White Cane Donations

The Millington Lions wish to express our gratitude for the outstand support from our community again this year.  All funds collected will be donated to the Leader Dog Foundation so that service dogs may be raised, trained and given to those in need.

We proudly congratulate these fine students for their academic achievements and express our wishes for continued success.

Latham Park Restrooms

WE SERVE
The Latham Park Board requested assistance with the construction of new restrooms. The Millington Lions Club took the challenge and began building the facility last month. The project is now complete and ready to use. We wish to acknowledge Lion Jeff Bassett for his leadership with the planning and supervision of this community project. Also, thanks to our Lions members who contributed many hours to this project. The Millington Lions are privileged to serve OUR TOWN.

 



Project KidSight 2016

The Project KidSight sight screening program that occurred on October 1 at the St. Paul's Fall Festival was indeed a success.  We wish to thank the Festival Committee, those who assisted, and most of all, the parents who brought their children to be vision screened.

 



Free Children's Vision Screening - October 1, 2016

The Millington Lions Club will be providing free children’s vision screening on Saturday October 1, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Millington.  This vision screening is open to all and is part of the Lions Foundation of Michigan’s Project KidSight.   Parents just need to park the car and walk into the school.

The screening is a very simple procedure.  A digital photograph of the child is taken and the image is then analyzed by a computer.  Our vision screening equipment produces a binocular image of a child’s eyes to develop a preliminary determination of the presence of eye disorders.

The process takes just a few minutes.  Project KidSight can detect potential vision problems in children as young as one year of age and we will screen children up to the age of nine.

Each year, thousands of Michigan children receive free vision screenings through Project KidSight. About 5% of children between the ages of one and five years of age experiences reduced vision resulting from a vision disorder.  If treated while the visual system is still maturing, eye disorders can typically be corrected with a non-surgical intervention and usually normal vision can be restored.

The Millington Lions Club encourages parents to take advantage of this free vision screening.   After all, every child benefits from good eyesight.

For more information contact Dave Kern at 989-239-6619, or any Millington Lion member.  You may also email the Millington Lions Club at millingtonlions@charter.net.

 



Most Honored Citizen - Lion Dale Weinzierl

His fellow Millington citizens congratulate, honor and thank Dale for his service to Our Town.

 



Melvin Jones Fellowship

We are delinquent with our acknowledgement of an April 16 Lions District Convention event at which Lion Harry Kern was honored with a Melvin Jones Fellowship. The fellowship takes its name from the founder of Lions Club International Foundation. The fellowship was established as LCIF’s highest form of recognition to acknowledge an individual’s dedication to humanitarian service. Harry's fellowship honor was made possible through the contributions and recommendations of the membership of the Millington Lions Club.

OUR TOWN

 

It's long overdue that we thank Lions Jack Meinecke, Mike Prell, Tom Kukulski and Marcus Jensen for rehabilitating the signs located on both the east and west ends of the village.
