Proud of our Eagle Scout!

Congratulations to Jagger

Bolton, Eagle Scout!

 

Jagger Bolton, Mandy’s son, started with scouting at age seven with Troop 58 in Slatington, nine years later, he earned the rank of Eagle Scout.  Jagger’s Eagle Scout project was to rejuvenate the fish pond outside of the Springside Fish Hatchery in Slatington.

In the picture at right, PA State Representative Zachary Mako recognizes Jagger’s achievement with a special commendation from the State of Pennsylvania.  Family and friends were all on hand to congratulate Jagger at his Eagle Scout ceremony.

 

The renovation project took months to complete.  The first step was to  remove all of the fish from the hatchery, transferring them to local creeks. After the fish were relocated, he began work on the fish pond itself.  The project included repair and painting of the fence, beautification of the landscaping and installing a new bench so local residents could enjoy the view.

A project on this scale was not possible without the help of the community.  Jagger acknowledges the generosity of area businesses who donated items or gave discounts for supplies and equipment.

Jagger also wants to thank his friends and family who donated their time and energy.  They persevered through a rainy summer to get it all done.  From spreading mulch to preparing meals for the volunteers, Jagger’s crew made it all possible.

Recycle For Sight – Used Glasses Needed!

You can change lives by donating your used eyeglasses!    

Moran Eye Associates is working with the local Lions Club to collect eyeglasses to distribute to those in need.  Dr. Mark Moran and his wife, Paulette are Lions Club members.  They encourage everyone to donate their used specs.

 Changing lives, one pair at a time:  In almost any home, you can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used.  Need a little motivation to clean out those drawers? Your donated eyeglasses can change the lives of children and adults.

For many years, the Lions Club “Recycle Your Sight” program has distributed glasses to people in need in low and middle-income communities. Donated glasses can:

Help a child read

Help an adult succeed in his or her job

Help a senior maintain independence

We know that many of our patients no longer need their old prescription glasses.  Especially those who have improved their vision through LASIK or cataract surgery with Dr. Moran! 

If you have a pair (or more!) of glasses to donate, bring them to our office at 1204 Delaware Avenue in Fountain Hill.  We would be happy to accept your donation during our normal office hours, 8-4pm, Monday -Thursday.   Prescription glasses, reading glasses, and sunglasses are all needed.
