Put Saturday, Oct. 16 on your calendar to volunteer at the HUGE meal packing event. In support of our District Governor Hugh Dawkins’ Day of Service, hundreds of our fellow District 7630 Rotarians will work in 3 different locations to pack meals for those less fortunate. Unlike other meal packing events we have participated in where the meals are shipped to third-world countries, these meals will be distributed in our own region. We will work with Rotarians from our own area at the VFW Post 160 in North East, Md. PLEASE SIGN UP FOR 10 A.M.-NOON OR NOON – 2 P.M.. Sign up sheet is being passed around. Or let Robin know and she will add your name. Spouses, reliable children, friends, and neighbors are welcomed to help.

Silent Auction BIDS NEEDED

The World’s Greatest Silent Auction is ready for BIDDING on line! Info will be sent in a separate email. We will have the items available for viewing at the World’s Greatest Meal at our meeting on Oct. 28. All proceeds will go to PolioPlus program of The Rotary Foundation. See Mike Luck if you have any questions.
