Our awesome Marketing Intern Lindsay

Image Central Kentucky Radio Eye makes an important impact in the lives of so many visually impaired Kentuckians, and I am so happy to have been a part of the great work this studio is doing.  I started this internship in December hoping to gain experience working in a radio station and within a professional setting.  Since starting this internship, I have met many people who are dedicated to Radio Eye and its importance to the Central Kentucky Community.   Chelsey, Amy, and Katy have been wonderful to work with, and I believe that their influence will lead Radio Eye in the right direction.

Now that my internship with Radio Eye is complete, I will be focusing on my senior projects and classes at Transylvania University.  I will be graduating in May with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Technology and a minor in Business Marketing.  In July, I will be off on my next grand adventure!  My best friend Ria and I will be learning how to organic farm in Montana during the month of July.  Afterwards, I hope to stay in touch with all the great people I have met in Lexington and find a job in radio/sound.

Thank you so much to all the volunteers.  You are the backbone of this non-profit and nothing could happen without you.  I hope to be back as soon as possible to volunteer with Radio Eye!

Lexington Lions Club

Lions Club

The Lions Club is the World’s largest service club. They have 46K Clubs around the world and have 1.35 million active members. They help their community and serve them. They conduct vision screenings and distribute eye glasses to those in need. They distribute medicine and raise awareness of eye diseases. The organization also awards grants. Since 1968 they have awarded more than $700 million to support humanitarian projects around the world. Their moto is “We Serve” and they do so in a big way.  

 

The Lexington Lions Club was chartered in 1921. Originally, it was an all male club, but in the mid 80’s women were brought into the organization.  This was true of all Lions Clubs everywhere until the 80’s. The Lexington Branch has a membership of 155.  A lot of their members are older having joined when they were young.  However, they do have younger members joining, which is what they need.  A lot of members are not able to attend all meetings as they are still in full-time jobs.  The Club meets every Wednesday at Central Christian Church at 11:30–lunch is usually set out between 11:15 and 11:30.

 

The meeting begins at noon and lasts for an hour.  As for membership, there is nothing that a member has to do such as memorization, etc. They just have to have a willing heart and spirit to support The Lions Club endeavors.  The emphasis of the Lion Club is on sight, hearing, and diabetes education.  They do not do small fundraisers to support their charities, but are supported through the Bluegrass Fair held in July in Lexington.  Everyone is expected to help with that if they can.  There will be a new member orientation in a couple months, at that time new members will be initiated.

 

Applications go to the secretary on the Board of Directors. The next meeting is held on Monday, February 18, 2013. If you are interested in becoming a Lexington Lion, please contact Linda Allen at linda-a@insightbb.com
