BURBANK NOON LIONS ROARING AHEAD
Burbank Noon Lion member Marva Murphy just returned from a trip to
Morelia, Mexico, where she volunteered in a two-day eyeglass clinic.
Recycled eyeglasses collected in the Burbank community, along with an
additional 3,000 to 4,000 from elsewhere, were given out to more than
550 villagers living in abject poverty.
Also present were eye doctors and other Lions club members from
Northern California who helped screen people for eye diseases --
ultimately finding several cases of cataracts.
"It was truly an uplifting experience," Murphy said. "The people
were so grateful, and I felt a real human connection to it all."
Burbank Noon Lions meet at noon on the second and fourth Thursdays
at The Castaway, 1250 Harvard Road. For membership information,
contact Murphy at 955-8018.
BURBANK SERTOMA RECOGNIZES LOCAL FIREFIGHTER
Burbank Sertoma Club recently submitted the name of Kelly Chulick,
firefighter with Burbank Fire Station 14, for the Los Angeles/Hawaii
Sertoma District's Service to Mankind Award. He won and, surrounded
by eight of his family members, he received the prestigious award and
a standing ovation at a May 5 banquet in Laughlin, Nev.
Chulick received the award as a result of endless hours of
volunteer work with Burbank Temporary Aid Center, the Burbank
Coordinating Council, the Spark of Love program with KABC and Sav-on
Drug Stores, the Grossman Burn Center and his involvement as an
instructor in firefighting programs at the College of the Canyons and
the Glendale Unified School District. His name will be submitted for
the International Service to Mankind award that will be given at the
Sertoma International Convention next week in Toronto.
"Luckily for our community, Kelly joined the Burbank Fire
Department, bringing his commitment of service to mankind," club
Secretary Sandie Tomer said. "He is an outstanding example to all of
the true American spirit."
