February 9
The deliveries will take the place of our regular club meeting and will all be done outside this year; no lunch will be provided. Park in the  school parking lot then meet at the front door to help with the set up and to hand out the bookshelves, books and decals to the first graders. We will need 6-10 members at each school, so sign up for the school/time you prefer:
Lawrence Elementary: 12:00
Benton Elementary: 12:30
The Club Service committee is asking members to wear their Rotary lapel pin, polo, tie, mask - anything with the Rotary logo -  that will promote Rotary or maybe serve as a conversation starter to those who would like to know more about our great organization. If you wear it on Tuesdays, there may even be some type of incentive. More information to follow.
