Pictured are Lion members Stan Rebik, left, and Ronald Hersom working on collecting, sorting, washing, cleaning, repairing, getting the prescription from a machine called the lensometer, and then labeling and boxing a total of 50 glasses per shipping box. Marshalltown Lions has already sent a shipment of glasses to the Caribbean this fall and is in the process of sending more than 1,500 more glasses to areas outside the U.S. for those who have no other way to obtain corrective lens. Marshalltown and Pella are the only clubs in Iowa participating in this important Lions International service project.
