On April17, the Kemptville Christian Reformed Church had their Spring Congregational meeting. Guest Speaker, Lion Robert Sentner, spoke on the Lions ongoing project to provide free eye care and corrective glasses to people in underdeveloped countries. The Kemptville Lions use a room in the Kemptville Christian Reformed church to store and catagorize the prescriptions. They annually ship the glasses to a country and send a team to run clinics for five days, usually providing glasses to more then 1,000 people who otherwise could not afford to obtain glasses. After his talk, Lion Robert presented Kemptville Christian Reformed Church with a Friend of the Lion Pendant for the church’s ongoing support of this program. Receiving the Pendant for the church were Ken Gehrels and Ault Van Bokhorst (Chair of the church Council).
