Rotarian Evelyn introduced the guest speaker, Dawn DeyDey who gave us a very interesting presentation on the Community Garden. This is a project of which many of us were unfamiliar and learned considerable information on the background of this site and the development of this project. Great speaker Ev!!
The Griz Pin project is winding down with Rotarian Elizabeth keeping us up to speed on the success of this event. It would appear that over five thousand dollars in Griz pin sales was generated in a very short time due in no small part to Elizabeth and her committee of Brenda and Barb.
Happy Birthday was sung to Knude Larsen (March 14th) and Bill Inglis (March 18th).
