Photo cutline -- Lions bearing “sightsavers” -- Friday is the day – Lions Candy Day, culminating Sight Conservation Week, Sept. 13 through 19, as proclaimed by Gov. Richard Riley. Tomorrow, members of the Camden, West Wateree and Bethune Lions clubs will be on the streets and in shopping areas giving away their rolls of candy mint “sightsavers” and accepting donations for their sight conservation projects. Here, Ed Ogburn helps out John Wells, vice president of the West Wateree Lions, and Eddie Love, president of the Camden Lions. Sight Savers are meant to make the public aware of the need for eye care and to raise funds to make eye care available to the needy. The proceeds are used to provide glasses, eye examinations and surgery and corneal transplants, when necessary; to maintain the Lions Mobile eye screening unit; to make contributions of equipment to the Medical University of South Carolina; and to aid the blind.
