Garrison Lions have Tele Sensory Reading machine for use

GARRISON — The Garrison Lions has a Tele Sensory Reading machine for use.

It can be used to read newspapers, magazines, bank statements, letters, pill bottles and even small telephone directories and stock market listings. It can also be used to see what you write.
