Adult School

Since 1952 the Springfield Lions Club has sponsored an Adult School at the Springfield High School.  The first adult school had only a few courses: sewing, typing, woodworking, metalworking, art, bridge, practical mathematics, and public speaking.  A total of 136 adults registered for the first classes.  A Summer Camp Program for students from 1st through 12th grade is held at each of the public schools.  A Fall Camp Program was begun in 1996 and includes classes for kindergarten children.  The Springfield Lions Club is unique in that no other service club is connected with their local school district in sponsoring Adult School and Camp Programs.  The Adult School now has 35 to 40 courses and an enrollment of over 600 students.

The Adult School provides numerous courses for adults, or anyone, interested in learning about special topics as computers, dancing, etc. Instructors are selected by the Springfield School District and the classes are given at either the High School on Leamy Ave. or the Middle School on Woodland Ave.  To be offered at the Winter 2011 Session:

Yoga – Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 PM at the HW LMC

Eye Glasses Collection

       Used eye glasses are collected to help the needy.

Eyeglass recycling is one of the Lions’ most popular activities. Although the program was officially adopted by the association in 1994, Lions have been collecting glasses for more than 80 years.

Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions in developing nations lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and continue to lend their support to the Lions Recycle for Sight Program.

If you should have used eyeglasses and hearing aids and would like to donate them, they can be dropped off at the following locations:

 Collection points are:

  •          The yellow and blue painted mail box with the Lions’ emblem on Saxer Ave (across from PNC Bank)

  •          Pilgrim Gardens Shopping Center at Marchese Opticians

  •          Southwest Cleaners on Woodland Ave.

  •          Springfield Library.

Used eye glasses can also be brought to the Lions-sponsored concert at the Rose Tree Summer Festival in the summer.
