South Whidbey Lions provide free screenings

The South Whidbey Lions Club is giving free vision, hearing and health screenings with the assistance of The Lions Health Screening Unit.

The LHSU will be in the Ace Hardware parking lot in Freeland on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 11 and 12, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. These screenings are free of charge to the community.

LHSU is a program of the Northwest Lions Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded in 1969 by Lions Clubs in the Northwest. The LHSU operates under the Lions’ motto “We Serve” and is staffed by volunteer health professionals and Lions Club members. Since 1997, this professionally equipped mobile unit has traveled throughout Washington and Northern Idaho providing vision, hearing, glaucoma, diabetes and blood pressure screening to more than 22,000 people annually, including 19,000 school children.

The LHSU is able to keep its service free through the efforts of civic-minded volunteers, local Lions Club sponsorship and the Northwest Lions Foundation. For more information, please call the South Whidbey Lions at 331-3151 or visit
