March is Eye Donor Aware­ness Month and for the past 24 years it has been cel­e­brated as a time to hon­our donors and their fam­i­lies and to cel­e­brate cornea re­cip­i­ents.

The in­valu­able ef­forts of eye banks and cornea sur­geons to re­store sight are also high­lighted.

Lions clubs con­trib­ute to this ef­fort by spon­sor­ing eye banks world­wide, in­clud­ing Canada, and trans­port­ing live eye tis­sue.

For 100 years Lions have served, mak­ing their com­mu­ni­ties a bet­ter place to live. In cel­e­bra­tion of this cen­tury of hu­man­i­tar­ian ser­vice, Lions are work­ing to serve more peo­ple than ever.

Did you know that on av­er­age ev­ery Lions club mem­ber serves 70 peo­ple per year? To con­tinue this ser­vice the An­napo­lis Royal Lions Club needs more mem­bers. By grow­ing its mem­ber­ship our club can serve more peo­ple and ad­dress in­creased needs at home and abroad.

If you are at least 19 years of age, male or fe­male, in­ter­ested in help­ing your com­mu­nity, con­tact Peter Sleight at 902-5322846 or email at pe­ter­sleight@ eastlink.ca.

The next meet­ing of the An­napo­lis Royal Lions Club will be held on Mon­day, March 27, at 6:30 p.m. for 7 p.m. sup­per at the An­napo­lis Royal fire hall. The club needs 72 hours ad­vance no­tice to re­serve a seat.
