No Weekly Meeting 11/27 Happy Thanksgiving

The Rotary Club of Norristown volunteers serve at the Advocates Against Hunger food distribution at the Norristown Public Library

Nov 8, 2014 Club members help distribute fresh produce to those who sacrifice such things just trying to make ends meet.  Emily Sayre works packing grapes along side of her dad, Jim Sayre Jr.  who is a club member.  Club members collaborated with volunteers from several organizations including CADCOM, Lower Providence Pres. Church, Catholic Services et. al.  There was a large turnout but refrigeration was not an issue on such a brisk fall morning.  This was the 4th distribution this year.  These distributions were made possible by funding from  Rotary.
