Frank Bartzen receives Knight of Sight

Charter Member drives the most for Eye Bank

December 19, 2007 -- Frank Bartzen received the prestigious Knight of Sight  Fellowship at the Christmas party.  The fellowship was presented to Lion Frank 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.

Bartzen is the club's leading transporter with over 55 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.  Frank is a charter member of the club since its inception in 1973. 

Other FDL Evening Lions that is a Knight of Sight Fellow are Orv Doede, a past president of the Eye Bank and Gary Colton.
