Irene Gleason will introduce Bob Drummond from One Blood to give us an update on their services, Archbold will provide a speaker (TBD) to talk about Organ Donation.
The YMCA is enjoying another successful year of baseball & softball. Children from all areas are having a wonderful time learning fundamentals and values necessary for a healthy childhood. If it were not for sponsors like Rotary, who care for our community and our youth, a program could never come together.
