Erv Karls receives Knight of Sight

Charter Member drives for the Eye Bank

June 2010 -- Erv Karls received the prestigious Knight of Sight Fellowship at the  Officer Induction Meeting.  The fellowship was presented to Lion Erv by the club for his continued support of the Eye Bank Transporter Team. 

Lions transport eyes and processed corneas for the Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin.  The Fond du Lac group relays tissue from Fond du Lac to Beaver Dam and delivers corneas to doctors in the Fox Valley and Two Rivers.

Karls is one of the club's leading transporters with over 50 trips.  Fond du Lac Evening Lions transport eyes at their own expense.  Forty-six trips equates to a cross county trip from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean.

The Knight of Sight is awarded by the Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin Lions upon receipt of a $1,000 donation by the club or an individual to the Eye Bank.  Erv is a charter member of the club since its inception in 1973. 

Other FDL Evening Lions that are Knight of Sight Fellows are Orv Doede (deceased), a past president of the Eye Bank, Frank Bartzen and Gary Colton.
