Special to The Vindicator FOCUS ON CHILDREN: The latest undertaking for Warren Lions Club is the Kyrgyzstan Project, an effort to help students with vision problems in a remote village in Kyrgyzstan. The project was initiated when Atty. Elliott Legow mentioned to Dr. Richard Shapiro, retired ophthalmologist, that his son Ben Legow, a Peace Corps volunteer and teacher, was concerned about his students’ vision problems. At the suggestion of Dr. Shapiro, the Lions accepted the challenge of providing a solution. As a result, three frame companies agreed to donate 150 frames, Central Optical of Youngstown offered to fill the prescriptions, and RD Optical Company is coordinating the process. The glasses and fitting instructions will be sent to Ben Legow to give to the students. Any expenses involved in the project will be underwritten by the Lions. Awaiting the arrival of the glasses with Ben Legow are some of his students who will benefit from the endeavor.

HEARTS FOR HEROES Special to The Vindicator LOTS OF LOVE: More than 1,000 valentines are being sent to Maj. Christine Blice-Baum, a U.S. Army chaplain in Iraq, who will distribute them to men and women serving in the military. The valentines are a part of a Heart for Heroes project conceived by Nancy Cuffle, a Realtor with RE/Max Valley Real Estate, to keep soldiers from feeling lonely. As word of her idea spread and others became involved, Home Savings designated its YSU-Kilcawley and main offices as drop-off sites for the valentines. A few of the valentines are displayed by, from left, Cuffle and Jeanne Watson-Antol, sales and service manager at the YSU Kilcawley office. They were created and donated by students at Wee Care Day Care, at South Range, Poland, McDonald, Canfield and Boardman schools, at YSU, and by employees of Home Savings and residents at Park Vista Retirement Center.
