IMPACT seeking toiletries
For the first big service project, the IMPACT club is seeking donations of basic necessities: shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, disposable razors, sports bras, and underwear to be donated to sober living homes in the community. Call IMPACT member Brooke at 302-373-230 with your questions. You can bring them to our next meeting and we will get them to Brooke. Timeline is January 15 to February 4.
25th Anniversary in February
Twenty-five years ago the naysayers said, “There is no room for another service club in Newark.” We proved them wrong! We will celebrate our anniversary next month with a special dinner on WEDNESDAY, FEB. 28, 2024, 6 p.m. in our usual room at the Courtyard. Spouses and guests are invited. Word has it that Jim Streit, one of our co-founders will be coming from Florida just for the occasion.
