vISION eXAMS & eYE gLASSES
DEDICATED TO IMPROVING LIVES
One of our most important initiatives is providing access to vision care.
We understand that good vision is essential for success in school, work, and daily life, which is why we partner with Dr. Shelly Rice of Rice Family Eyecare to provide free vision exams and eyeglasses to those who need them.
Thanks to our partnership with Dr. Rice and her team, we’re able to make a real difference in the lives of many people in our community who otherwise might not have access to this vital care.
WE PROVIDE VISION CARE FOR 50 TO 100 COMMUNITY MEMBERS EVERY YEAR

WAGONER FIRE DEPARTMENT DONATION:
In 2022, we were able to donate $20,000 to the Wagoner Fire Department for repairs of their Grass Fire Rig, and purchase of a New Skid Unit. There was no money in the budget to repair, and purchase this necessary piece of equipment so the Wagoner Lions Club was honored to be able to meet this community need
