Proceeds from Dublin Irish Stampede run will go to support the activities of the Dublin Lions Club throughout the coming year. Just and example of a few things your Lions Club does. This year we will again be sending local children to Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville, Texas for one week at no cost, these children are physically challenged and some of the children who go to the camp are diabetic.
The camp is staffed with well trained medical personal so parents need not worry about their child’s needs while attending camp. We also sponsor an Ice Cream Float party for over 450 children at the Lions Camp. We will be buying glasses for local children in need. Last year we took over 150 pictures of kindergartner and first graders eyes with a special camera that helps reveal undetected eye problems.
In most cases with some correction and glasses, it allows the children to do much better in school. We have taken over 850 pictures and found problems with 15% of those children’s eyes and have referred them for professional eye care. We will continue support of other local activities for our children.
