Our speakers at today's meeting were senior members of the Girls' and Boys' Varsity Basketball Teams to tell us about their experience serving meals at Rosie's Place, a soup kitchen for women in Boston's South End.  Kalli Doherty, Matt Panacopolous, Alex Perez, Katie Nestor and Alec Gibbs recently went with  other members of the basketball squads to prepare and serve meals at Rosie's Place.  Rosie's Place has a program where groups can sponsor a meal and prepare and serve it.  Reading Rotary paid the cost for these athletes to participate.
They spoke about how moved they were by the experience.  They had the opportunity to meet and speak with women in need and each expressed that the experience made them more appreciative of what they have.
