Vision Screenings for 364 Children!
The Antrim Bennington Lions Club offered free vision screening for children in the towns of Antrim, Bennington, Francestown, Greenfield and Hancock the week of September 15, 2014. We tested children up to the fourth grade in these five schools along with children at The Grapevine. During Home and Harvest we also provided free eye screening at the Town Hall.

The Antrim-Bennington Lions Club is a local, community service organization which is part of Lions Clubs International , the largest voluntary service organization in the world. Lions are an international network of 1.3 million men and women in 202 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.
Our club was created in 1981 and has been providing services to the international and local community since that time. Our two major fund raising efforts (Home and Harvest BBQ and selling Christmas trees) provide funds for local efforts such as Operation Santa, Bike Rode and providing glasses for those in need. In addition we volunteer for hosting Community Suppers, vision screening for 4 to 6 year old children, holding Election forums and many more. Periodically our club takes on a major service project such as the Antrim Bennington Outdoor Guide, a 60 page guide to the outdoor resources of our communities that we published in 2009 and 2013.
Following are the Lions providing hotdogs, food and drinks at an Antrim in the Evening concert.
Lions club members are men and women who strive to make a difference in their local community as well as in communities worldwide.
