Lions Club checking for 20/20 vision

LANDRUM–Members of the Landrum Lions Club, along with District One School Board members and District One faculty and staff, began the annual eye screenings this week. The first school to receive the screenings was O.P. Earle Elementary School. 


With the new innovative technology, the screenings took only fifteen seconds per child, according to Spartanburg District One.


It was all hands on deck getting the kids to sit still, but the Lions Club was able to accomplish a lot in their time at O.P. Earle. The Lions Club expects to screen 1,500 students between the three schools. With the new quick moving process, possibly more. 


The eye screenings is one way the Lions Club is able to reach out and be a part of the community. The remaining schools to be screened are Holly Springs–Motlow and Campobello Gramling School.


The Lions Club will also be screening the seniors who take part in the Aging and Wellness Center at the Landrum Depot on Thursday morning.
