Daybreak and Evening Rotary Clubs, in a joint effort, sponsored a Holiday Party for residents of the VOA shelter and Safe House on December 15th.   Approximately 36 men and women, plus 14 children were invited to the party.  They were served turkey, ham, vegetables, assorted side dishes and desserts, all provided by Rotary members.  Our District Governor Roger Ptolemy opened the party with a speech about Rotary .  We all joined in dinner with people from the shelter and safe house .  Santa Claus made an appearance and distributed gifts to the children.  Each child received gifts valued up to $25.00 from their individual wish lists.  The adults were given $20.00 gift certificates to Walmart and one lucky person won a $50.00 gift certificate donated by Walmart.  Funds for the gift certificates and children’s gifts were provided by Daybreak and Evening Clubs.  Rotary members and Rotaract also assisted in the set for the party and serving dinner.  The residents and their children appreciated the effort of Rotary.  It was said the festivities helped the holiday spirits.
