OSWEGO – Members of the Leadership Oswego County program class of 2013 paid a visit to St. Luke Health Services in Oswego to present residents with items collected as part of the group’s Project Lead The Way.
This year’s Leadership Oswego County class chose to honor our area’s older population and acknowledge all their contributions and sacrifices they have made on behalf of our community.
Members of the Leadership Oswego County class collected items to help residents of area nursing homes celebrate their birthdays and make them memorable events.
Items donated included a tote full of cake mixes, brownie mixes, cookies, tins to bake in, decorative items and cards. Distribution of the items coincides with Older Americans Month celebrations.
