Rotary has Heart for Seniors

Thank you to all who helped, greeted, and smiled at our visiting seniors last Thursday. They thoroughly enjoyed being a part of our meeting. One senior stated that the entire morale of the senior center had been increased since seeing the February calendar with an outing to The Plaza for Valentine's Day. They could hardly wait to have their annual party with Rotarians again. Thank you for caring. And thank you to those Rotarians who sponsored a table.

Tomorrow, February 21st at the Plaza
