Today we met at the Summit and assembled 75 Senior Citizen Christmas Bags to give to Meals on Wheels Senior Citizens, and we elected our new Board of Directors for 2019/2020.
Our meeting today was held in the Chestnut Room at the Summit on the Park where we had ample room to assemble our 75 Senior Christmas Gift Bags.  Our members enjoyed a catered lunch from Panera before we began.  We then proceeded to put together our gift bags.  Thanks to all who donated gifts and to all who helped assemble the bags.  Below is a note that we received from one of the recipients of our gift bags.  We are  humbled to have been able to make someone's holidays a bit brighter.
 
"My husband and I would like to say how greatly we appreciated the gift bag that was put together by the Rotary Club and delivered by Meals on Wheels.  Hubby has dementia and other health problems.  Watching him look through the bag was so exciting to me and he was so happy.  I got a double blessing by watching him open my bag and seeing the goodies in there too.  Thank you so very much for taking the time and effort to make our day a little brighter!  Have a Blessed Holidays."
 
We also elected our 2019/2020 officers today.  They are as follows:  President - Lisa Kennedy, Secretary - William Tesen, Treasurer - Susan Kowalski, Director - Sarah Maiga, Director - Nathaniel Houghton, Director - Dean Clemons, Director - Marlette Anquetil.  Congratulations to all of our 2019/2020 Board Members who will take office on July 1, 2019.
