On Thursday June 17, Addison Midday Rotary Club divided large bags of Apples-Potatoes-Onions into small bags.  The large bags were from a supplier to Metrocrest and the smaller bags were for children to take home as part of Sack Summer Hunger.  AMRC created over 350 of the small bags.
 
We will again be 'Sacking Summer Hunger' on July 22.
 
 
We made 50 Easter Baskets.  Hope Supply is distributing them through out the community.  They can use more baskets.  Consider this project for you group next year.
 
At our Feb 2 meeting, Speaker Lisa Rigby of Woven Health Clinic presented club member Al Angell with a Top Donor Award for his contribution to Woven Clinic.
 
 
Hatsoff to Al.
