Unit #1 was obtained and has traveled many thousands of miles testing literally hundreds of residents across the state of West Virginia. Because of the heavy demand on the use of Unit #1, it was believed that a second unit was needed. (NOTE: At the WVLSCF Meeting on March 27, 2011, it was reported that due to mechanical problems with Unit #1 and the amount of monies needed to repair the Unit, it was voted to remove Unit #1 from use immediately. Refer to Minutes of this meeting for additional information)
During Lions year 2001/02 a committee was appointed to study the need for a second unit. Much of the research had already been done by PID Fred Cole, and the committee relied on him for sound advice. To the best judgment of the committee, a Winnebago 2002 model was recommended to the Trustees and approval came at the 2002 Foundation meeting. Since that time, Unit #2 has been heavily utilized and has been scheduled at several successful screening events.
