Lions Club–Save the Date, And First Meeting Of March

March 4, 2019 all-day

The Cuenca English Speaking Lions Club will be having their chartering banquet on Saturday, April 6 from 1-5 pm. Tickets will be $25 per person.

This will be our major fundraising event of the year. We will have music, great food, cash bar, raffles, and more! We expect to have attendees from multiple Lions clubs here in Ecuador. If you wish to support our work this is a great opportunity to do so. (No meetings, no dues, just fun!) Stay tuned for more details as the time nears.

We will have our regular club meeting on Monday, March 4th. It will be our first election of officers for our newly charted club. Our new meeting location will be at the Castle. If you chose to eat with us, you will have a rotating choice of three items (for faster service) from either The Vegetable Bar or Eat. Or if none of these six choices meet your fancy, you may order off the regular menu from either restaurant.

Our club’s initial focus is on addressing the need for early childhood vision screenings, from 6 months of age onward. This is intended to identify eye disease early to prevent blindness. We have already bought and received the equipment to do this. And, we have made many contacts in the education, health and eye care fields to help us with this work.

Monday, March 4th 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM. Come at 12:30 and enjoy the great food if you can, Meeting, free; Lunch approx $4-$8, The Castle (multimedia room) located at 3 de Noviembre (70m downriver from the broken bridge) or half way down Bajada Todos de Santos
