Lions Club receives eyeglass donation

For his community service project in preparation for testing for his third-degree black belt, Ryan Rotondi chose to collect used eyeglasses to donate to the Lions Club. He collected 168 pairs and donated them to the Glen Allen/Short Pump Lions Club, which sponsored his efforts, at its Nov. 7 meeting.
