PHILIPSBURG – The Rotary Club and the Volunteer Optometric Service to Humanity (VOSH) resumed eye examinations on Wednesday, May 11, at 9:00am at the White & Yellow Cross. They issued tickets for the first 300-400 people to be seen.
School children were given preference. The team did their best to see and test everyone, but there was limited space. The Rotary thanked everyone for their support, and mentioned that this has been an eye opening experience for the need of proper vision care on St. Maarten.
“The response to this event has been tremendous and we have seen the need in our community for eye care is great. The Rotary Club of St. Maarten is proud to assist,” stated Rotary President Jeffrey “Soc” Sochrin.
“To help facilitate things on Wednesday, we will be handing out tickets tomorrow starting at 7:00am at the front desk of the White & Yellow Cross. When tickets are handed out, we will try to give an approximate time you can expect to see the eye doctor,” stated Rotarian and Event Chairman John Caputo before the tickets were handed out.
