Oceanside CA— PDG / President of the San Diego Center for the Blind, Len Blotton, awarded Oceanside Sea Lions President, Zucette Lumabas, the year round Growth Membership Excellence Award for her outstanding service.
The Oceanside Sea Lions is one of over 46,000 Lions Clubs with over 1.35 million members worldwide. The mission is “to serve”. Since 1923, when Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become the “Knights of the Blind”, sight conservation has been the primary mission of the Lions. Throughout the world, Lions have dedicated themselves to take up Miss Keller’s challenge.
The Oceanside Sea Lions have taken this challenge to heart. Since the 1960’s (with the help of generous local eye doctors), they have furnished eyeglasses for thousands of children in the Oceanside, California area. In addition, they have sent several people to the Southern California Lions’ Eye Institute in Santa Monica for eye operations performed by highly skilled surgeons at little or not cost to the recipients. The Oceanside Sea Lions meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday at 7:00 pm at the China Star in Oceanside. Guests are welcome.
