Osage Lions to host White Cane Day

From left, Hazel Yliniemi, Helen Ellingson, Sharon Gordon and Anna Johnson have been working on White Cane Day.

The Osage Lions will be hosting “White Cane Day” along with “Recycle for Sight” Friday, June 13, at select locations around Park Rapids and Osage.

This is the 19th year the Lions have raised funds. Money donated to the White Cane projects go directly to the Minnesota Lions Eye Bank, Macular Degeneration Center and Children’s Eye clinic.

The miniature white cane is a symbol of the white cane that makes blind people more mobile.

The Lions are collecting used eyeglasses and hearing aids. You may drop them off at Hugo’s, Coborn’s, Ace Hardware and L&M Fleet in Park Rapids.

In Osage, drop-off sites include Osage Bait & Tackle and County Market from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
