LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Noon Lions Clubs from across the state will meet in Lawton for their 100 Years of Service convention and would like to invite the public to attend.

Friday and Saturday, May 20-21, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn and Convention Center, the Online Northeast Lions Club is offering free health screenings.

A mobile health screening vehicle will be on site to check blood pressure, blood glucose and bone density. They are also offering a free eye screening for children ages 6 months to 6 years old.

Jennifer Robinette, a former president of the Lawton Noon Lions Club, says without these services, many people would go without medical care.

“It's important that they come out so we can insure they are healthy. Most people don’t have health insurance that we see. So, we just want to help out those that can't go to the doctor or don’t have the funds to do so on their own,” Robinette said.

Robinette says the Lawton Noon Lions Club’s mission is to serve. The national organization hopes to reach 100 million people by 2017.

If you'd like to help out this cause, the Lawton Noon Lions Club is accepting canned food donations to fill up the food pantry, as well as used eyeglass frames, which will be re-purposed to bring sight to others.
