Free vision and hearing screenings, and free refurbished eyeglasses for all people of all ages, especially those with financial hardship.
No registration is necessary and services are provided on a “first-come, first-served” basis at the San Dieguito United Methodist Church, 170 Calle Magdalena, Encinitas, CA 92024.
During these screenings, licensed sight and hearing professionals will provide eye and hearing health assessments and, if necessary, free refurbished eyeglasses. The vision screening is not intended to replace the comprehensive eye examination obtain through a doctor’s office. It does assess eye health concerns and provides a useable pair of recycled eyeglasses until professional services can be obtained.
For more information, please visit https://clfis.info/ or encinitaslions.org, or visit the Encinitas Lions Club on Facebook.
Sponsored by the Encinitas Chapter of Lions Club International, in conjunction with the California Lions Friends in Sight, Essilor Vision Foundation, and the Encinitas Branch of the San Diego County Library.
Walt and Paula have enjoyed performing together for over twenty-five years in various formats, including nine years with the instrumental group, Mandolin Madness, founded by Walt in the early 90s.
It all started early on, though - for him in San Diego - for her in Northern California. After many independent band, vocal and performing experiences, Walt and Paula eventually met in San Diego where they discovered many common musical interests.
After hearing their duo blend, musician friends encouraged them to visit the annual Western Music Association meeting in Arizona. They were pretty certain that Walt and Paula would find repertoire in the Western genre that would appeal to them. And, that they did!
Hot Pstromi bandleader and founder Yale Strom was a pioneer among revivalists in conducting extensive field research in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans among the Jewish and Rom communities. This unique research formed the foundation for Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi. Hot Pstromi’s sound – a fusion of traditional klezmer, new Jewish music, Gypsy, khasidic, world beat and Balkan music noted for long improvisational breaks – is unique and celebrated. Strom and his band will be performing klezmer, Yiddish, Ladino, swing and even a bluegrass tune or two!
