The book is “The Cold War and Legend of Francis Gary Powers”.

 

Fall/Spring Shopping

In the fall, the Club works with an “at risk” school and selects homeless students that might not be able to purchase clothing for the school year. Members of the Club meet with the school’s principal and counselor to determine how many children will be provided with clothing. We have developed a partnership with JC Penney stores and they provide the Club with a 20% discount on all purchase, JC Penney provides each student with a back pack loaded with supplies, and a continental breakfast the morning that Rotarian’s help the students select their clothing. Here are some pictures of the event.
