Fun/Fund Raiser Definitely was FUN!
Good food, family and friends aong with fellowship and FUN! Our annual picnic had it all. The photo contest brought in $271 to be donated to winner Laurie Williams’ favorit charity, the Boys and Girls Club. Thank you, everyone who “voted” on the photo of reading the Rotary megazine in a most unusual place. Cute puppies will take first prize in any contest! But, Jerry, on a ladder? Really??? =)
