September Project - 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!















Sept 12 - Addison Police Chief, Paul Spencer spoke to us about the community outreach programs and crime/response statistics in Addison.  Stolen mail is the most reported crime lately.  He also discussed expansion of the Santa Cop program, depending on the grant request submitted by the Addison Rotary Club and Addison Midday Club for additional funding.  Our club will also serve as volunteers to wrap presents, collect, distribute, etc.  Plans also include a summer outdoor event.  We have a substantial population of at risk children in some of our hotels and apartments.
