Members of the Canfield community, Rotarians, and Canfield High School Interact are shown as they take a well-deserved break after a busy morning working on the clothing drive. Relaxing during the rest stop are Interact members, from left, Michael Brocker, Alexis Bates, Matt Schaefer, Layla Benaie, Chelsy Skalada, Dom Mirto, and McKenzie Hagy.

TRAVELERS: At the Oct. 5 meeting of the Rotary Club of Austintown, the speakers were from left, Jim and Dawn Tallman of Niles. Jim Tallman is a past district governor and now chairman of the district foundation grant program. The Tallmans traveled to India to see the results from funding of between $300,000 and $400,000 that District 6650 has sent there over the past six years. They visited a microfinance conference, which offers grants to women to start businesses and then sponsor others with profits. They took part in a Polio Day, in which 160 million children were immunized. They toured many Rotary water and solar cooking projects, a deaf school and Pardata Pardadi school for girls who can learn a trade to support themselves. At right is Brian Laraway, Austintown Rotary president, who presented a book in honor of the speakers to be donated to Woodside Elementary School Library.

Special to The Vindicator
WELL-TESTED: Members of Lions Clubs from District 13-D conducted free eye screenings and tests for 943 people during the Canfield Fair. There were 85 Lions from 11 area clubs who volunteered to provide the services at the medical building. They tested visitors for glaucoma and peripheral vision and used eye charts to evaluate symptoms of vision loss. The screenings were up 20 percent from last year, and 37 percent of those tested showed signs of possible eye problems. One of the volunteers, Canfield Lion Ruth Ann Cannell, is shown as she provided the peripheral vision test for an area resident. The testings were coordinated by Lions Past District Governor Ted Filmer of Canfield Lions Club.
