Marion Cross school students get free Spot Vision screening

Getting ready to screen

Norwich Lions members volunteer their expertise and services

The Norwich Lions club sent a team of Spot Vision Screener's  to the Marion Cross School as requested by MCS  principal, Bill ("Mr. Bill") Hammond.  On  September 24 and 25 the Norwich Lions Club members will conduct SPOT Vision Screening for children of Norwich's Marion Cross Elementary School (MCS).

School nurse, Pam Hausler, RN, and  Norwich Lions  member Gary De Gasta coordinated the event including arranging for our club to screen all the grades at the school.   It is estimated that 290 students will be screened. The results will be sent to parents.  Last year 76 children and 5 adults  for a total  of 81 individuals received the screening. 
Our dedicated and experienced Lions conducted the screening. Below are some photos of today's event with more to be added as the screening progresses.
