Back in the saddle again?
Our first attempt at returning to live meetings offered options for all. Those comfortable with an inside - socially distanced meeting - had a chance to participate and have some pizza provided by our President Kevin Pehler, and those who were not were able to tune in and watch live video via our club Facebook page.  Those who watched reported varying degrees of watchability while live but the full recorded meeting can be viewed on our Oconomowoc Rotary Facebook page.

PROGRAM: Vision for the future

Brett Bennett from Skygen presented about providing vision testing and eyeglasses to tens of thousands of people in Tanzania. Throughout 2018-19, Brett embarked in three separate humanitarian missions in Tanzania, Africa, as part of a team to establish mobile vision clinics. The International Skygen Foundation has offered free eye exams and corrective lenses to more than 22,000 people, many of whom had suffered with poor vision for decades. SKYGEN International Foundation is holding vision screening clinics at schools and community centers throughout the Meru district of Tanzania. The training has created new jobs where none previously existed while enabling the vision care program to become self-sustaining. This initiative continues on a daily basis with a goal of tripling that number by the end of 2020. Bennett attended Marquette University, is an Eagle Scout and a United States Marine Corps Veteran.
