Bob Mangus Awarded Lions Sight & Hearing Center’s Top Honor for Service

Longtime volunteer and Lions Club member has served as board president since 2000

Robert Mangus, Lions Sight & Hearing Center of Santa Barbara County board president and volunteer, is the recipient of the 2012 Jim Stanley Perpetual Memorial Award from the Lions Sight & Hearing Center.

The honor is given for outstanding service and dedication to the Lions Sight & Hearing Center and exemplifies the Lions’ campaign for Sight. Mr. Mangus has served as president of the organization for 12 years and has been a Lions Club member since 1964.

The Lions Sight & Hearing Center was founded in 1963. The Jim Stanley Perpetual Memorial Award was established in memory of Lions Club member Jim Stanley, who served as president of the Lions Sight & Hearing Center for 24 years until his death in 2003.

The Lions Sight & Hearing Center offers free vision, hearing and glaucoma screenings for adults and children in schools, and recycles used eyeglasses. The facility is made up of representatives of local Lions Clubs in Carpinteria, Santa Barbara Host and Goleta: Bob Mangus, president; Bruce Evans, vice president; Geoff Banks, treasurer; Joan Logan, secretary; and Jean Mangus, executive director.

The 8th Annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon took place on May 18 at Mulligan’s Cafe & Bar at the Santa Barbara Municipal Golf Course.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
