December 3rd: The Family Holiday Assistance Program has asked for our help setting up the tables and gift items for the shopping that will be done the next day (Monday morning). As a group we will organize and set-up the various items to be selected by eligible families. The set-up is from 6 – 9 pm Sunday at the Armory building, 1065 N Airport Rd. The families will select items that will help make Christmas a little more memorable for their families. The families that qualify for this program would not be able to have Christmas gifts for their children without this help. As a club we are asking each member to donate $$ that will be given to the Family Holiday Assistance Program so they can purchase the additional items that will make the Christmas shopping experience better for the parents. Sherrie will provide a donation box wrapped in Christmas paper with an opening for donations. The box will be at the Fall Social that will be held at Sue and Paul Longson’s Ranch at 6 pm on October 19th. Checks made out to The Cedar City Rotary Foundation or cash will be appreciated.
