Glasses overflowing: The Boardman Lions Club made a donation of more than 1,400 pairs of used eyeglasses and 150 pairs of sunglasses to LensCrafters in the Boardman Plaza. September's donation was the largest single donation received at the branch. Above, Karen Kannal, right, Boardman Lions Sight Chairwoman, presents the glasses to Kayla Stone, LensCrafters licensed optician. Drop-off locations for eyeglasses include Boardman United Methodist Church, the Spectacle Spot, Boardman Library, St. Luke's Church, Boardman Center Middle School and Sam's Club. Stone says the eyeglasses are sent to Cincinnati for distribution to Mexico, Paraguay and India, among other countries.
