MELC@Day in the Bay-AJ Robinson Van

DISTRICT 4-C6 LIONS will sponsor The A.J. Robinson Mobile Screening Unit — affectionately referred to as “The A.J.”—- is a mobile trailer outfitted for providing health screenings that may highlight risks for blindness or vision problems. The trailer is also outfitted to be used for hearing screenings. The range of screenings that can be provided depends on the skills of the Volunteer that staff it. You can have your   height, weight, blood pressure, resting respiratory rate, and blood sugar measured. No diagnostic procedures are performed but  leave with a record of the findings that they can bring to their doctors or health professionals for follow-up.

While attending this fun-filled event wear any LIONS gear to make the public aware that LIONS are here to serve the community.  If you have a chance to volunteer one or two hours of your time  that would be great to give other volunteers  time to enjoy the festivities.

For more information to volunteer on the AJ Robinson Van:

Contact Region Chair MariCris Benitez at (408)430-7830 or

 Zone Chair Sue Szucs at (408)250-4107
