The Berkeley Springs Lions Club will hold their annual Sight Conservation Campaign (White Cane) this next weekend, May 9 and 10. Club members will be at the main office of CNB Bank, Inc and the BBT Bank on Friday. Then on Saturday they again will be at CNB Bank Inc. and at the Food Lion Store in Morgan Square. The club will be seeking financial help from people in Morgan County to support their world-wide efforts.
Part of the money collected will be used internationally to help restore sight for people with eye problems. The work carried out in many different countries involves cataract surgery, treatment for glaucoma, providing eye examinations and glasses, offering help in the prevention of river blindness as well as other sight problems. Through this help many millions of people are treated and have their sight restored. Countless numbers of people, both children and adults, in these countries walk many miles to be helped.
