Christmas Baskets
Once again our club will be adopting families from across the region this Christmas. This program will not only provide food, other essentials, and of course toys to families, but it also lets them know our club cares about them. There are two ways for each of you to participate in this wonderful tradition. First, you can make a financial gift. You can do this by letting Liz know you'd like her to bill your Rotary account or you can make a gift by cash or check in the red envelopes placed on the tables at the next meeting. The second way to participate is by shopping. If you want to be a shopper you can contact Steve Wade at
