The Club’s goal is to raise $400.00 over the 4-day fund drive which ends tomorrow, according to John Abplanalp, Rotary Holiday Gift Project Chairman. “Our Club members have a lot of fun ringing the bells. In fact, Melissa Gee and Karen Cahilly are having a healthy competition to see if Karen can raise more than the $113.16 that Melissa and Holden Ottolini raised last night,” added John.

According to Mark Benson, Volunteer Coordinator, various Rotary members and community volunteers participated in what turned into a bit of a Salvation Army “fundraising competition” this year, including;
