Serving our Seniors Stops by to visit your local Lions.

At the Tuesday February 21st meeting of Vermilion Lions Club we were pleased to have as our guest speaker Sue Dougherty from Serving our Seniors. Sue talked about the services offered by 'SOS' such as Share-A-Ride. Share a ride is a Transportation Program that provides a ride for senior citizen and disabled residents who need to get where they want to go independently.
Sue also talked to us about the need in helping Seniors of Erie County with the cost of glasses.

The Vermilion Lions had had recently helped one senior but reminded those applying to check to see if they are eligible in case their gross income was too high.

Also at the meeting was the Vermilion Library's Janet Ford, Lions President Steve Holovacs presented Janet and the Library with the Low Vision Reader to assist those with sight difficulties and disabilities. Janet noted that when the Library gets it going they will notify us so we can see it in operation.
