Reiki healing is one of the most ancient methods known to man.

Lions Club provides eye screening at Moultonborough day care center



MOULTONBOROUGH — Members of the Moultonborough Lions Club were at Imaginations Day Care Center last Thursday conducting free vision screening tests on the children attending the center.

Thanks to a matching grant of $53,000 from Lions Clubs International Foundation, 15 Spot Vision Screeners were purchased for Operation KidSight. These screeners are to be shared between the 79 Lions Clubs in New Hampshire.

The screening takes just seconds, yet it will provide a comprehensive analysis that will enable one to make an informed decision about whether there is a need for follow-up diagnosis.

The screeners can detect indications of the following vision issues: near-sightedness, far-sightedness, unequal refractive power, blurred vision, pupil size deviations, and eye misalignment.

The "ultimate" goal is to screen all children in the State aged 6 months through grade 12 over the next few years. If one child's vision is improved as a result of these screenings, it will be worth the time and effort put into Operation KidSight.

Program at Taylor Community on Feb. 25 about planning a funeral

LACONIA — Lee Webster, director of New Hampshire Funeral Resources, Education and Advocacy, will present a free program on Wednesday, February 25 at 10 a.m. in Taylor Community's Woodside Building, covering various topics surrounding planning a funeral.

The average American funeral today can cost more than $10,000 and a cemetery burial adds even more. Instead of burdening loved ones to make uninformed financial decisions while under duress, take the time now to plan ahead to help your family know exactly what your wishes are.

The program will cover topics such as: planning for last wishes to be carried out; going over a family's legal rights and responsibilities; making a funeral meaningful without breaking the bank; getting only the services you need and want from the funeral director; integrating home funeral care with religious or spiritual beliefs; and home funeral and green burial options.

Webster is also president of the National Home Funeral Alliance and sits on the board of the Green Burial Council. She is a home funeral guide, conservationist, writer and speaker from the Lakes Region. To RSVP for the event, please call 524-5600.
