Lions celebrates the differently abled

Submitted By Milpitas Lions Club

Join our Fourth Annual ?Celebrating Differences? Event for youth and adults with differing abilities sponsored by District 4-C6 Lions and Milpitas Executive Lions Club in partnership with the City of Milpitas Recreation Department on Saturday, March 17. Our mission is to provide challenged children, adults, and their families a special day to enrich, entertain, and honor these special individuals for their courage, determination, and positive attitude about life.

This will be a fun-filled day of indoor and outdoor activities, games, and entertainment for families in an inclusive environment. We will be honored to present a special performance by the Dream Achievers Band, a group composed of musicians with autism.

A free health screening will be available. The Lions? Mobile Health Van is outfitted for providing health screenings that look for risks for blindness or vision and hearing problems. Height, weight, blood pressure, resting respiratory rate, and blood sugar will be measured. No diagnostic procedures are performed, but participants leave with a record of the findings, which they can bring to their doctors or health professionals for follow-up. The van will be parked on the Milpitas Community Center lot from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 pm.

Another project, Lions In Sight, is dedicated to bringing basic eye care and eyeglasses to a world of people in need. A collection box for used eyeglasses will be on site.

Sponsors and donors are most welcome to help make this event a success. Thank you for your support!
