Covid Aid Goes On....
18 Mar 2023 marked three years that our Club "had been making food and health item deliveries to area residents who are elderly, infirm, or without transportation.  Although the pace has slowed a bit, the need is still great."  Rona reports that 327 deliveries, as of 13 April, have been made since the program began in 2020.
