Day of Service

August 7, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm


No regular club meeting with a program. Rather, Rotarians will engage in volunteer activities involving picking up and delivering food to local food pantries. In this hot summer, many of the pantries are experiencing a shortage of food.

                                      Day of Service

                                     August 7, 2017

Food Pantries are in serious need of an additional supply of food during the summer months.  One of the reasons for this critical need is that students are out of school and do not have access to the breakfast and/or lunch that they receive during the school year.  Families are depending on the local pantries as an additional food source.

On August 7th, we will not have a club meeting.   I am asking Rotarians to purchase items of food and donate to a food pantry.  A suggested list of items will be available at the meetings.  Please make donations to the following pantries:
