TRIBUTE TO WINNETT LIONS CLUB
MR. DAINES. Mr. President, this week I have the honor of recognizing the Winnett Lions Club for their impact on Petroleum County and surrounding communities.
Over the past 3 years, the Winnett Lions Club has serviced rural communities through free visionary health screenings. This preventative care aids in catching Ambylopia, an easily treatable disease during childhood.
In just 3 years, the Winnett Lions Club has served over 3,000 children and has traveled over 2,500 miles to help rural communities. The Winnett Lions Club has served children from Headstart, Child Find programs, local public schools, colony based schools, and business fairs. They have gone above and beyond to support the children in their surrounding communities.
I congratulate the Winnett Lions Club for their dedication in serving their community and for leaving a positive impact on Petroleum County.
