Great news for the "HEARS" Program

Since 1988, the Pikes Peak Sertoma District has been providing hearing aids and related services to low-income, hearing impaired individuals who could not otherwise afford them.  The program is called HEARS and is administered by Sertoman volunteers working with local audiologists and ENT's wo offer theoir services at reduced rates.  This great program has provided audiology testing and brand-new hearing aids to over 2,300 qualified individuals ranging from 18 months to 100+.  

Funding for HEARS comes from Sertoma club contributions, donations, and from our annual "HEARS 5K experience", a 5K fun walk/run held in August each year.

The great news is that Debra Powell of Broadmoor Audiology has agreed to become the title sponsor for this years 5K and is donating $2,500.00 to this years event.  Debra and her husband are owners of Broadmoor Audiology located at 1685 Briargate Blvd.  To honor her gift this years event will now  be called:

Ann Sullivan Award Presentation

Jeannie Prejean was presented the Lions Club International Ann Sullivan Award for outstanding community service in early May.  The award recognizes "Lions and others who work hard behind the scenes and limelight, expecting no reward or recognition," the award letter states. "They assist and help the leaders of our association without regard to personal gain or achievement. These persons are a vital part of the Lions of Colorado and should be known for what they do."

The award is named after the woman who taught Helen Keller, a deaf and blind child, sign language and Braille. Keller went on to challenge the Lions Club International Convention to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." The Tri-Lakes Lions Club continues this honorable work to this day with support for eyeglasses and other Eye Bank and Cornea replacement activities in El Paso County.

Sullivan was herself partially blind, and she and Keller remain inspirational to Lions around the world.

Jeannie was nominated by the Tri-Lakes Lions Club for her work supporting El Paso County District 6-SE and Northern El Paso County and is being presented her award by past Colorado Lions Club District Governor  Don Rose and current Tri-Lakes Lions Club President Dave Prejean  during the regular “First Thursday” monthly Lions meeting at the Monument Country Club.

Comment by Wild Forever Foundation on October 13, 2011 at 9:34am
Wild Forever Foundation is responding to the need of youth education in wildlife safety. We recently encountered a situation where some local children were holding and cuddling a baby skunk. WFF is preparing a presentation to deliver to local elementary school students about the dangers involved with wild animals, specifically diseases like rabies. We feel this program should be delivered directly to the children, along with educational materials to take home to their parents. If you would like to have this program presented in your classroom, please send an email to dkoss@wildforever.org or call 719-475-9453 and leave a message with your contact information.
