Fire Hall Field Trip
Thanks to Lewis Briggs II for arranging for Lewis Briggs III to lead a tour of the Georgetown Fire Hall on January 31st. Thanks also to Gene Stevenson who shared some interesting information about GVFD that was founded in 1903. We learned a lot about the amazing work these dedicated volunteer firefighters do using "state of the art" equipment and technology. Please consider supporting Georgetown VFD's "Oyster Eat" on February 24th, their largest fundraiser.
Thanks to Sunny Gyani for chairing our Bernie's Christmas Food Baskets project that were delivered to 24 families with each family receiving two baskets of food. Thanks also to everyone who helped deliver and to all the members who contributed throughout the year with their "Happy Dollars," fines and 50/50.
Sunny is pictured below at Ennis School.
Thanks to Lewis Briggs for chairing our "Cookies for Cops" project that helps DelCastle VoTech students provide cookies to every police department in Delaware. Thanks to everyone who delivered the cookies including members of other Rotary clubs and to Ruth Briggs King for making sure everyone received the correct number of boxes.
Thanks to Todd Wilson (shown above at The Jefferson School) for coordinating our Dictionary Project and to Carlene Roche, Charlene Hubert, Ray Hopkins, Todd Wilson, Dan Tabler, Sarah Cha Cha and Shannon Wright for delivering them to Georgetown, North Georgetown and East Millsboro Elementary Schools and the Jefferson School.

Thanks to Chris Wolfe for chairing this project. Our section of road to clean is approximately two miles on Rt. 113 from Kruger Road to Governor Stockley Road. The first clean up was on October 22nd with so much litter picked up it barely fit into Chris' truck. Thanks to Chris, Carlene Roche, Charlene Hubert, Judy Dean and Sarah Cha Cha for helping. And, a special thanks to Sarah for recruiting three friends to help. The next clean up will be in January.
