The Lions Club brought the South Carolina Lions Charitable Service  Mobile Health Unit to Loris Middle School last Thursday and Friday.  The mobile unit travels around the state providing basic preventive health screening on vision, hearing, hypertension and body mass index to citizens of South Carolina at the request of local Lions Clubs. The annual service is provided to Loris Middle School students and the cost is covered by the Loris Lions Club. During this visit, approximately 375 students  were screened and given referrals and assistance if needed.  Lions members, school staff and other volunteers joined forces to make the event successful.   Pictured left to right are: Jimmy Murph, program chairman, secretary  and treasurer; Arnold Gaspersohn, membership chair; Jamie Nealy, RN, Loris Middle School nurse; George O’Neill, District 32-C Past District Governor; Deanne Blackburn, LPN, volunteer; Barbara Cetin, volunteer; Melissa Mangione, volunteer; and Ash Little, South Carolina Lions Unit Operator.
