Rotary Club hands out gift bags to seniors

The 53 gift bags were handed out by Rotary members to Evergreen Acres residents during their Christmas dinner

Editor, The Times:

I would like to extend a huge thanks to everyone who helped make this year’s Rotary Senior’s Gift Bag project such a success. Items for the gift bags were made possible by generous donations from sponsors and members of the Clearwater Rotary Club.

A very big thank you to Rotary Club members who helped collect the items for the gift bags and prepare the gift bags for distribution.

The 53 gift bags were handed out by Rotary members to Evergreen Acres residents during their Christmas dinner held Dec. 4, to residents of Birch Island Seniors Residence, and to Forest View residents at their Christmas luncheon held Dec. 20.

This is the fourth year that the Clearwater Rotary Club has organized this project and it seems to be popular with the seniors.

Wishing one and all a Happy Holiday Season!

Isabell Hadford
