VISION AND HEARING SCREENINGS FOR LOCAL STUDENTS

The Burleson Lions Club conducted vision screenings and hearing screenings in the Burleson Public schools, Holy Cross Christian Academy, Burleson Child Development Centers, the Home School Co-op at Burleson Church of Christ, and Keene Elementary School during October and November. This annual community service is a key focus for the Burleson Lions in support of our overall commitment to serve the Burleson area.  Our support is also a key assist to school nurses in meeting the Texas state requirements for vision and hearing screenings.  WE SERVE!!

This year (2023), 4421 students were screened for both vision and hearing, and 622 referrals for professional eye exams were made.  In 2022, 4,110 students were screened and 541 referrals for professional eye exams were made. Families who could not afford the exam and glasses were provided this exam and glasses at no charge. The Burleson Lions Club members volunteered 642 hours in 2023 and 600 hours in 2022 for this worthy endeavor.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

The Burleson Lions Club participated in Burleson Founders Day 2023.  Several Lions met with Founders Day attendees and provided information on the Lions Club and our service in the Burleson community.  Shown here are Lions Blair Lybbert and Stuart Gillaspie. 



The Burleson Lions Club attended the Burleson Chamber of Commerce Winter Luncheon on January 18, 2024.  Over 20 organizations were in attendance, each communicating their community involvement.  Pictured here is Lion Vaughn Schlegel manning the Burleson Lions Club table.




We had a nice turnout at the Library Great Give Back event on February 3, 2024. Lions Billy, Vaughn, Les, and Blair manned the table while Lion Michael roamed the room. There was a decent turn out of citizens and number of civic/service organizations represented. We talked to a lot of people and shared the Burleson Lions Club story.




Meals on Wheels is an avenue in which the Burleson Lions Club shares with our community.  Each week one or more of our members partners with Meals on Wheels to provide a meal to members of our community and at the same time makes contact with these people for whom it is more difficult to be out and about.  Lions Bill and Gloria Ayars are shown here delivering a meal.

SLEEP IN HEAVENLY PEACE BED BUILD - 9 September 2023

We had a GREAT Sleep in Heavenly Peace bed build day! It was at the Lions Park in Waxahachie and they setup a large tent to shield us from the hot sun.

Lions Vaughn, Galen and Bob travelled together, and Vaughn & Galen ran into Kathleen & David Sinzinger while eating lunch. Soon to be inducted members, Eric and D'Ann Benson were there helping out as well, making a total of seven volunteers from the Burleson Lions Club. It was a sizable crowd of volunteers, and there was some coming and going througout the day. We stayed heads down until we ran out of 2x4s at about 2:45. Best estimate from some of the SHP staff was 160+ beds completed.

See more info for Sleep In Heavenly Peace.

Lion Don Newberry, The Idle American, has written an inspiring column about Sleep in Heavenly Peace.
