Week of 11-23-15

The President’s Corner

November 23, 2015

Happy early Thanksgiving!   As Rotaractors, we have much to be thankful for: being among a group of young professionals with many life-long friendships made & the opportunity to give through service to our club and community.

We will not be having our meeting on this 4th Thursday because it’s Thanksgiving!  We will see you at our next meeting on Thursday, December 10th.

This last Saturday we had our monthly service event with Farm Share.  First Coast Rotaractors bagged and loaded 600 grocery bags for families in our community.  That’s a lot of groceries!!

December is always a busy month with the holidays, so make sure you save the dates for our social and service event for December!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and we will see you in December.

Have a great week,

– Jen Suharmadji

Community Service

Save the date for Saturday, December 19th from 7am-12:30pm.For our December service event, we will be volunteering with the Jacksonville Toys for Tots program. The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
We will be helping out with their toy distribution on Saturday, December 19 from 7:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The distribution will take place at the Regency Sqaure Mall.
The organization wants to have ideally between 35-45 volunteers per shift. So we will be paired up with a different organization during our shift time.
