District 13B Lions Leaders visited the construction site of the new Lorain County Health & Dentistry facility which will house the Vision Clinic. Lions of District 13B, which includes 56 clubs in ten north central Ohio counties, are partnering with LCH&D to establish the vision clinic at the new site. Lions are raising $150,000 to equip the vision clinic with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and LCH&D will operate the clinic once equipped. It is expected that the new vision clinic will open in the fall of 2013. Lorain Lions and other Lions in District 13B have raised over $42,000 since March of this year and will continue to work on fundraisers and seeking community donations to reach the goal by April of next year.
