A journalism student at Missouri University, Hailey Rutlege has produced a video about Lions Clubs and eyeglasses. Hailey was a student in one of the early classes sponsored by the Springfield Host Lions Club where we introduced students to information about blindness, eye care and how Lions Clubs helped others. This class was an idea by Lion Judy Young and is now in its 12th year. Hailey contacted Lion Jerry Young as President of our club and asked for an interview. She wanted to portray some of what she learned to others and to comment about needing and wearing eyeglasses. The video is part of Project for Awesome. The voting is now over but it is a great video worth seeing & showing to other Lions members & people in your community.
