Sight is an extremely precious gift and the Sioux Empire Lions Club aims to share with as many people as possible.  

The stated goal of the Lions Club in South Dakota is to provide eye exams and glasses to people who can’t afford them.  A Poker Run to assist in that effort gets rolling on Saturday.  Donna Spielman who has been a long-time Lions member finds great joy in helping.  “We get so many, ‘Thank you’s.’ and ‘God Bless you’s.’ It makes a huge difference. There are people who can’t get a job because they can’t see well enough to perform that job.”

To participate in this event, just go to the South Dakota Lions Eye Bank on Highway 38 near the new Walmart.  Registration is from 11am to 1pm.  The route will take travelers through Garretson, Dell Rapids, north to the Madison exit on I-29, Colton and Hartford.  All types of vehicles are welcome.  Take a ride for sight.
