Lions Join Leos at "In Ian's Boots"

E-mail Print PDF

The Coventry Lions joined the High School Leo Club in a joint project at In Ian’s Boots.

Leo advisor John McCormick (top left) had fourteen members of the Leo Club join ten Lions in a project at the "Shoe Box", a warehouse where donated shoes are prepared for those who cannot afford to buy the shoes they need.

The Leos and Lions had several tasks to perform. Including -  organizing and cataloguing shoes, boots and sneakers; painting barrels as a temporary housing for the newly arriving shoe donations; constructing a shelving unit to hold the mountains of boxes of shoes.

These shoes find new owners from all parts of the world. Read about In Ian’s Boots HERE.

Lions prepare studs and panels to construct a shelving unit to hold the many boxes of shoes.

Message Found In Ian’s Boot

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

Dr. Ambrose Peterman is Honored for over fifty years of helping the Coventry Lions Club by offering free eye exams and prescription glasses at cost.

Dr. Peterman has been working with the Coventry Lions Club for well over fifty years. In addition, he worked with the Stowe Lions Club in Pottstown. Ambrose (Pete) announced his retirement as an optometrist at the end of September this year.

When schools would contact the Lions Club regarding a child in need of vision care a simple phone call to Ambrose Peterman,O.D. and the child was given an appointment to be shortly followed by an exam and glasses. The only charge to the club was the cost of the materials as the doctor's son, Todd Peterman worked next door as an optician and would prepare the glasses for the child.

The doctor's good will expanded beyond the school's children from disadvantaged families to area senior centers, community centers and basically any entity that worked to help those in need. If someone came to the Lions Club for help with vision problems they were sent to Dr. Peterman to get the help they needed.

Although the club has lost a valuable community resource with the retirement of Dr. Peterman we wish him a long and happy retirement.
