Opelika Lions Club donates pairs of glasses

Members of the Moody (Alabama) Lions Club, Jane and Vernon Barker, standing center, were guests of the Opelika Lions Club. The Moody Lions Club operates the Alabama Lions Eyeglass Recycle Center where it processed more than 360,000 pairs of eyeglasses last year, 7,000 to 12,000 of which were distributed in Alabama, while others went to Mexico on mission trips. Other centers are in Indiana and Florida, which send them all over the world through other mission trips. The Opelika club gave them more than 2,000 pairs of glasses.
