September 2019

The air changes from warm to crisp; it is apple picking time; can the colorful leaves be far behind?

Our busy season(s) as a service club is kicking into high gear. In the first three weeks of the month we have done vision screening in four schools (Moultonborough Academy, Thornton Central, InterLake Middle School, and Laconia Middle School) with a total of 963 students being screened and almost 100 of them referred for a more complete eye exam. We have several more schools on our schedule to be done throughout the fall.

At our dinner meeting on the 16th of this month we had Jessamy Cornell, Diabetes Educator at Huggins hospital, give an information presentation on Type 2 Diabetes.

We are also busy collecting individual donations for the pediatric cancer wing at Dartmouth/Hitchcook. Our club has already donated 20 “game sheets” and will send the clothes, toys, stuffed animals, books, etc. to the CHAD after the October dinner meeting.

Plus, members continue to water and week Sutherland Park in Moultonborough — Look for the fall scarecrows to make an appearance soon. And bingo continues to provide entertainment and social opportunities for many on Tuesday evenings.
