Covid Aid
 March 18th marks one year that our Club "has been making food and health item deliveries to area residents who are elderly, infirm, or without transportation.  Although the pace as slowed a bit, the need is still great."  Rona reports that 147 deliveries have been made during the past year. Doug and Ted helped one of our Pawcatuck clients move some stuff from her home and over to the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center and Brookside. 
 
Rotary Park Little Free Library
Kathryn, Derin and Doug have met to work on the repair/rebuild of the little library house built by McKenzie Gitzendanner in 2017.  It was damaged badly by vandals.  Doug will do the rebuild.  Derin & Elaine Temel plan to stock it.  Kathryn encouraged the Board to register with the Little Free Library organization, whose motto is "Take a book Share a book".  We will receive an engraved sign along with a Charter and a place on the Little Free Library World Map.
