Dan Hewitt started playing drums in the summer of 2006. He moved to New Hampshire and met Michael Vincent in grammar school and they soon collaborated with Dan Mack to form the trio.

Operation KidSight to screen for vision issues


MOULTONBORUGH — Nine members of the Moultonborough Lions Club received bands on training using the Spot Vision Scanner in preparation of introducing Operation KidSight to Moultonborough Academy students on January 29.

Operation KidSight is a free vision screening sponsored by Lions Clubs in New Hampshire and made possible by a matching grant of $53,000 from Lions Clubs International Foundation. Thanks to the grant, the New Hampshire Lions were able to purchase 15 new Spot Vision Scanners to be shared among the clubs.

The scanners can easily detect indications of the following vision issues:

Near-sightedness, far-sightedness, unequal refractive power, blurred vision, pupil size deviations, and eye misalignment. And the best part is that it can do it in just seconds.

Lion Mark Cotrupi is Moultonborough's club coordinator for OKS. He will be the main contact with schools and day care centers in the area to set up the screening events.
