Dear Editor,

Since 1953, the Lions Club of West Orange has been recognized throughout the township for our service to the blind and visually impaired. A majority of the world’s eye banks, clinics, and eye research centers are established and supported by all Lions Clubs throughout the world.

We are men and women committed to helping provide quality eye care, eye glasses, and optical aids for many people each year. People who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes, striving to help those in need. It is the world’s largest service club association.

Last year we contributed funds to Camp Marcella and Camp Happiness for the blind, St. Josephs’s school for the Blind, the Eye Institute of NJ, Lions Eye Bank (Eversight), National Federation for the Blind, the Electronic Information and Educational Service of NJ, Music Association for Visually Impaired (MAVIS), and Association of Blind Athletes of NJ.

We also donated to the West Orange Hill School Project Graduation to help provide our graduating high school seniors with a productive and drug-free program at graduation.

Additionally, Lions Club of West Orange has been actively involved with: West Orange Health Fair (Eyemobile Health Screenings), Downtown West Orange Street Fair, West Orange Community Thanksgiving Luncheon, and Peace Poster contest.

To the Lions, “WE SERVE” is not only a motto but a definition and philosophy. 

We will be hosting our annual Spaghetti Dinner, which will be held on Thursday April 26 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the West Orange High School Tarnoff Cafeteria, 51 Conforti Avenue. This is our major fundraiser for the year.  

We hope that you will support us by coming to the dinner and/or purchasing a business card advertisement for our Spaghetti Dinner placemat. It is a reasonably priced, well attended fun event to be a part of. 

On behalf of the Lions Club, I would like to thank you for your past and anticipated support.

Roger S. Schneider

President, Lions Club of West Orange

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
