IN MEMORIAM Past International Director Shiro Yabe, of Tokyo, Japan, has died. He was elected to the International Board of Directors in 2002 at the international convention in Osaka, Japan. A Lion since 1960, Past Director Yabe received numerous awards and was recognized as an LCIF Humanitarian Partner for his contributions to Campaign SightFirst. CORRECTION Lions SEE Inc., a Multiple District 20 project involving more than 400 trained Lions, has screened the eyes of more than 31,000 preschool children in New York state since 2008. A story about the Fairbanks Goldstream Valley Lions Club in Alaska incorrectly identified the agency providing grants to build a park. The correct agency is Alaska State Parks. LION Magazine regrets the errors.
