November President's Message:
Our third, and final for
the year, public vision screening is over. It was a smashing
success. We had a 1300% increase over our second; we had 13 people
to be examined, although we had 15 sign up. We still do not know
what happened to the other two.
During the session, we
were able to secure the facilities for 2015 and we also found a
translator for the Spanish speaking clients. The church helped
secure this lady. We have decided to not hold any more screenings
due to the dates November and December fall on. November is the week
of Thanksgiving and December is the week of Christmas. We will
resume in January.
During the screening a
lady had her eyes check and suggested we come to her church and she
and the other ladies would spread the word and we could hold a
screening there. We told her to get in touch with us and we would
see if we could work it out. Things are looking up.
Our speaker for November,
11/17/14, will be The Honorable Eulis Willis, mayor of Navassa and he
will speak on the subject of the GULLAH GEECHEE language and its
origin. This should be an interesting meeting.
Our speaker for October was Sargent Burt Reaves with the Brunswick County Sherriff’s Dept. He presented a very interesting program on PROJECT LIFESAVER for people with "WANDERING SYNDROME.” For those of you that missed it I have brochures and will be glad to give them out.
Please continue to keep
Sue Sands, Loretta Skinner and Lucinda Waterson in your thoughts and
prayers during their illness.
Thank you for allowing me to serve you as President.
