Here are a few pictures from the toy buying. Thank you and everyone at Rotary for helping us with the generous donation.

 

 

       
On Saturday, December 8, Club members and friends assembled and packed 100 food boxes at the New Hope City Hall.  Most boxes were delivered on the 8th.
 
 
Another great project!!! Way to go, Club!
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. 
Our Club participated in the Robbinsdale Meet & Greet on September 18:
 
    
 
And our Club contributed to:

As we've done before the Club held its annual School Supply Drive and on August 24 the Club helped distribute the supplies at PRISM.

 

 

 

Thanks for making this year's drive another success!
