Smiles for Cumana Speaks at Recent Meeting


Louise Zawadzki, fellow Rotarian spoke yesterday with Don Heebner, about the clubs joining forces in their mutual involvement in Rotaplast. Adoption of Beanie Babies was greatly appreciated and a fun way to raise needed funds for cleft palate surgeries provided by Rotaplast!

Support of $1000 makes life-changing surgery possible for one needy child in the world.  In this way, Rotarians like you are helping us make smiles.

The club is working toward a September mission to Cumana.
