Connor's Kindness Project
We had an amazing presentation from Connor of Connor’s Kindness Project.  Connor, a 7th grader, started up this charity which provides care packages to children.  This year CKP plans on delivering 2000 packages filled with toys, games and other comfort items to kids in need.  To see such empathy and initiative from a person so young was so inspirational.
For more info about this amazing charity, check out its website.  CKP is also on Facebook and Instagram.

Rotary Readers Project Upcoming
We will soon be scheduling times to deliver literacy bags to Kindergarteners as part of our Rotary Readers project.  Rotary Readers is our annual project to provide reading books to students in the Reading Schools.  We provide two reading books in a Reading Rotary drawstring backpack.  Also, in the bag is literature about the importance of reading to children and information about Reading Rotary.
This past Wednesday this group gathered to assemble the book bags. Many hands made quick work and we had a blast.
Once we have the schedule form the schools, we will be looking for Rotarians to read to the Kindergarten classes.  Stay tuned.
Fun fact:  this literacy project was adapted from my daughter Mary Kate's Girl Scout Gold Award project, which was literacy bags for new mothers delivered to local hospitals.  
Rotary Responding to Ukraine Crisis
From John Germ, Trustee of The Rotary Foundation:
As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, Rotary has made peace the cornerstone of our global mission. We are deeply concerned about the Ukraine crisis and need your help.
Rotary is made up of people of action, especially in difficult times. In response to the deepening refugee crisis, The Rotary Foundation Trustees have decided to prioritize contributions made to the Disaster Response Fund until 30 April 2022 to support disaster response grants for districts affected by these events. These expedited disaster response grants can be used to supply water, food, medicine, shelter, and clothing.
Half a million people have fled Ukraine and are in dire need of emergency aid. The United Nations estimates that number of refugees could grow to as many as 5 million people displaced. Rotary clubs in Europe and around the world have stepped up their relief work, some working on the ground to help displaced families.
With your donation to our Disaster Response Fund, we can support communities and help rebuild lives during this tragic time.  You can donate to The Rotary Foundation's Disaster Response Fund for Ukraine here.
Calling Polar Plungers
Our District Polar Plunge is on April 2.  All members, friends and other brave souls who are willing to plunge into the icy Atlantic to raise money for Polio Eradication please contact President John.
Please mark your calendar and plan to come and support the Plungers on April 2.  We have reserved a motel room at the motel on Long Beach.
