At the Bonham Pre-Kindergarten School’s Open House on Sept. 17, members of the San Marcos Lions Club performed free eye tests on students whose parents had agreed to the screening. The focus was on the detection of Amblyopia, a condition that if discovered between ages six months and six years, can be easily and effectively treated, avoiding possible permanent damage to the eye. The screening also detected other vision abnormalities.
On Sunday, Oct. 11 at 2 p.m., the Wittliff Collections at Texas State University will present a celebration of writing by sisters Elizabeth Crook and Noel Crook.
The sisters who are both acclaimed authors grew up in San Marcos.
