Lions Update Eyeglass Collection Box
(Shopping News Photo by Donald Reese)
For over 25 years the Ephrata Lions Club has collected over 10,000 used eyeglasses, as well as lenses and hearing aids to be reused by individuals throughout the world. Collection boxes have been placed throughout the community at different businesses with the collection box at Martin’s Market being the most productive. That collection box was a donated U.S. mailbox, which was repainted in Lions’ colors. Over the years the box has shown its wear and was in need of repainting. A local business donated a new sign, and Lions Bill Peters, Jack Forney and Bob Eberly repainted the collection box. The new Lions emblems were placed on the box to make it more pleasant and useful for years to come. Thanks to the Ephrata community for making this a very successful service project of the Ephrata Lions Club. Shown in the photo are (left to right): Lions Jack Forney, Bill Peters and Bob Eberly.
