Rotary Last Week, December 15, 2005

There was no formal meeting because this was our annual Christmas luncheon. Shirley Bonsell did a superb job arranging the affair, which was held in the Crest Room at the Thayer. Warm greetings were everywhere, and many a tear glistened in our members’ eyes as the James I. O’Neill H.S. chorus sang Christmas carol’s. The club members contributed gifts to “The Santa Project” of Orange County Safe Homes. Lisa, a young rep. from OCSH accepted the gifts on behalf of family 52-A, consisting of a mother & four children. May God bless them all.


Fast forward to Sat. & Sun. Dec 17th & 18th.

This was Dave Weyant’s  annual “Salvation Army Bell Ringing”, where club members showed at Key Food in Highland Falls to raise funds. (Results pending at this writing.)
