With the opening of the new clinic the River Region Lions Clubs anticipate going from serving 225-250 eye patients per year as individual clubs to over 4,000 eye patients per year by pooling their resources and partnering with River Region Health Services. The River Region Lions Eye Clinic is the culmination of over a 1 & 1/2 year joint project of the seven Lions Clubs in the River Region which is made up of the Montgomery, Autauga & Elmore County area.

The Brundidge Lions Club was founded in 1951 and have always been outstanding supporters of Alabama Lions Sight.
ALSCA Executive Director Durden Dean recently took part in eye screening for a very special group of young people. They are orphans from Moldova that were sponsored by a local church in Montgomery and spent the summer traveling, visiting churches and seeing the sights throughout Alabama and the Florida panhandle. The children have had a difficult life in their native Moldova and visiting the United States was a dream come true for them. Most of them had never had an eye exam and due to the generosity of Dr. Roy Hager of Montgomery and the UAB School of Optometry received free eye exams and glasses. Picture with the students and others are Dr. Mary Jean Sanspree with UAB, Mike Merrill, ALSCA E.D. Durden Dean, Dr. Hager and Torrey Dekeyser with the Eyesight Foundation of Alabama.
ALSCA Executive Director and Montgomery Lions Club member Durden Dean recently took part in the presentation of 800 pair of eye glasses to Frazier United Methodist Church in Montgomery in support of their Mission of Hope outreach to Haiti. A total of over 3,500 glasses will be sent to Haiti to be distributed to the poor in support of the Lions worldwide mission of service and Frazier's mission efforts in the country.
