MARLBOROUGH – Members of the Marlborough Lions Club, old and new, came together once again, to help fight blindness. They came together to clean approximately 3,500 recycled eyeglasses. Next step is to neutralize them (i.e. use a lensometer to read the prescriptions), bag and label them, and then distribute to their next owner somewhere around world. This is just one way Lions are serving a world in need.
