Club News 


 We had lunch then sorted food donations at Metrocrest Services Warehouse.  We always get more accomplished than they expected!  Bring it on!























Due to the recent disasters around the world and locally, the Club Foundation Committee voted to donate $1,000 for a shelter box.  The club members are now challenged to raise $500 to be matched by an anonomous donor, to allow us to purchase two shelter boxes.  So far, $300 has been donated.  Make checks payable to the Addison Middday Rotary Foundation and let Stan know if you are planning to donate.  We will invite a Shelter Box representative to speak at one of our meetings and present the check!





We are still collecting prescription bottles.  Be sure to remove the labels and rinse.  Bring to each meeting.  Stan is collecting for use in Malawi, a small landlocked country in southern Africa.  Don't forget, your animals may have prescriptions too!
