LETTER: Lions Club comes through for young man

My family and I were visiting my friend in Blythe on Jan. 12. My friend told me that she heard on the radio about a program the Lions Club was having to help people to get glasses. My son has had bad eyes for a long time and we couldn't afford to get any for him, We are farm workers and move around a lot so he has trouble with school work and not seeing good made it worse.

I decided to take my son to this program. There were a lot of people there and we had to wait some but what a blessing. They gave him glasses and now he can see good. My friend says she has not seen anything in the paper about this program so I am writing this letter to let the Blythe Lions Club know how much I appreciate what they do. More people who can't afford glasses should know about this program.

My son is so happy he can see. Thank you Lions Club of Blythe. Bless your work.

Bless the Lions Club for all that they DO. These very deeds help keep our patchwork, "melting pot" society stitched together.
