The Club did a service project on February 20 at Bibles for Missions.  We helped with sorting and putting out inventory.
 
Despite the pandemic and practicing safety restrictions, the Club safely managed the holiday baskets again.
 
Club Member David Dumas has a longstanding tradition of buying toys to distribute to youth in domestic violence shelters.  This year Club President Sharon Green and Club member Sharon Anderson helped David with toy selection.
 
 
And our Club awarded a grant to the "Start Anew" program.  Here is Club President Green with one of the 300+ children benefitting from this program.  
 
The September 11 meeting was Friends, Family and Community Day.  We had many visitors and thank them for attending our meeting.  We're always happy to welcome new members to the Club.  smiley

Are you an established professional who wants to make positive changes in your community and the world?  Our Club members are awesome!
 
Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man - Paul P. Harris.  The Chicago attorney formed one of the world's first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on February 23, 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.  Rotary's name came from the group's early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
 
You are invited to visit us at an upcoming meeting - we meet Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at Frankie's Pizza in New Hope.
