Dixie Elks Lodge – EYE FAIR!
The St. George “Dixie” Elks Lodge is hosting an Eye Fair which will be held Saturday, Oct. 22, 2016 at the Elks Lodge located at 630 W. 1250 N., just off Bluff St., in St. George. The event runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. All students, ages Kindergarten through 9th grade, can come to the Lodge and get their eyes checked at no charge. Doctors from Paradise Canyon Eye Care and Dixie Eye Care are donating their time to provide the eye screenings. They check for distance as well as reading vision, which is different than most PTA eye screenings. Kids can also play carnival type games, have refreshments, make crafts, and get their faces painted, and its all FREE.
If there are children who do not pass the eye screening, the Elks will give them a voucher to go to the doctor’s office and have a more thorough exam, and get glasses if they need them. The Elks have a minimum of 25 vouchers to award on a first come first serve basis. There is no charge for the screenings, the games, the food or the vouchers.
This is the fifth year that the Elks have sponsored this event. Over the last 4 years the Eye Fair screened nearly 600 kids and helped over 150 of them get glasses. It is exciting to give children the help they need to do their best in school. We hope to be able to help as many kids as possible this year.
