Kingston Lions Club has designated Nov. 6-12 as White Cane Days in Kingston.

White Cane Days is an effort to collect funds to support many eye-related projects of the District of Lionism.  These projects include the Lions East Tennessee Eye Center, Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic, Lions Volunteer Industries for the Blind and similar endeavors.

Lions Club members will be at Harriman Kroger from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 9 and from 2 to 6 p.m. Nov. 11.

A roadblock is planned for Nov. 12 in downtown Kingston.

This year’s White Cane Days campaign collection goal is $2,000.

The Kingston Lions Club is one of many thousand clubs throughout the world dedicated to serve their communities.

A major emphasis of these clubs is to assist individuals with sight and/or hearing deficiencies.  

Toward that end, the Kingston club pays for eye examinations and/or glasses for those unable to afford them.

There are many other areas of service that are performed as their motto is “We Serve.”

Call Martin Skinner at 376-6894 for more about the work of the Kingston Lions Club.

The club meets at 6 p.m. the second and fourth Monday of each month in Harriman Shoney’s.
