Lions to raise funds for sight foundation

Members of the Coupeville Lions Club are gathering at Prairie Center-Red Apple, Whidbey Island Bank and the Coupeville Ferry dock to raise funds as part of the annual Lions White Cane Days May 1-5.

Funds donated by community members will be used to fund the Northwest Lions Foundation, “Restoring Sight, Hope, & Hearing” through patient care grants, project support grants and to support the Lions Health Screening Unit, which traveled more than 20,000 miles, giving more than 34,000 free check-ups for glaucoma, diabetes and blood pressure.

“Money raised will allow Lions to meet pressing needs in our district,” said Coupeville Lion Joe Walck. “Lion members thank everyone who contributes to this important work. You are truly helping Lions make a difference in our community.”

Coupeville Lions Club has 130 members and meets 6 p.m. each Wednesday at the Coupeville United Methodist Church-Fellowship Hall.

Lions Clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs. For more information or to get involved with the Coupeville Lions Club, please call Joe Walck at 360-678-5124 or visit the website at
