"Weíre more than just glasses," said Lions Club member Randy Belton. The Pinedale Lions Club contributes money to help people with special needs for eye and retina care, eye exams, and glasses to the Navajo Indian Reservation. They are strong supporters of the Rocky Mountain Eye Bank. In addition, they raise funds to help people who need hearing aids, and for aged family support. They have bought special Braille books for the blind and they support the Leader Dog program. They have contributed money to people who need assistance to get to doctors visits.
"We try to spend as much money in Sublette County as possible," Belton said. The local Lions Club sponsors the Angel Tree each holiday season. They helped local kids go to the Junior Olympics for skiing. They bought special chairs for the Learning Center. They built the gazebo in the American Legion Park in Pinedale and also the one in Shelter Park, with a generous donation from the McMurry Foundation. They sponsor the Easter Egg Hunt each year in Pinedale and do the Lions Club Lunch during the Green River Rendezvous Pageant each year in July.
People who have special needs can find out more about assistance from the Lions Club by contacting any Lions Club member or going through the Wyoming State Department of Family Services (DFS).
