St. Luke’s Director of Nursing Theresa Makin, RN (center) is seen receiving the cards.

“Thanks to the Oswego Lions Club for their generous gift to our residents,” said Greg Osetek, director of community relations. “This handy magnifying card will no doubt be used and appreciated on a daily basis, making reading fine print a little easier.”

The primary missions of the Lions Club are sight and hearing related projects.

This includes assisting community residents and school students with eye exams, eyeglasses and hearing aids.

Anyone in need of glasses or hearing aids can contact Steve Juravich at (315) 343-3249 for more information.
