To be the leader in community and humanitarian service. To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace, and promote international understanding through the Lions Clubs Association. “We Serve” is more than a motto, it is our commitment to the Signal Mountain and Walden communities on the mountain.

COMMITTEE OF THE MONTH
Every month we will highlight an active committee of the club and give information on who is on the committee and what they do.
Kid Sight Screening Committee
Chairman Win Cooke
Active members: Nelle Cooke, Mac Cauthen, Paul Hendricks, Paul Jensen, Blythe & Joe Houser, Carol Simmons.
Kid Sight Screening was started by Tennessee Lions in 1997 and the Signal Mountain Lions have been actively screening pre-school children since the program began. This year to date we have tested 174 preschoolers at St Timothy's, Signal Crest UNMC, Signal Mountain Presbyterian and LOPH. Our future schedule, as in the past, has us testing at Little Ms. Mag. VW preschool and the 2 Primrose schools down the mountain. We will also catch the new Signal preschool (formally Educare) and soliciting 2 new schools off the mountain. We estimate we will test 350-400 preschoolers during this school year with the objective of early detection of vision issues.
The Plus Optix camera is a remarkable piece of equipment that allows us to test up to 6 potential vision issues. Beyond preschools, we are expanding to test middle school kids in the inner city. While our protocol of sending results to Vanderbilt will not be accepted older children, we will be able to identify potential issues and refer them to local optometrists/ ophthalmologists for follow up.
