The Rotary Club of Placentia participated in the Easter Eggcitement drive through held at the Civic Center this Saturday. Previously the club had gathered to assemble the treats in kid sized bags to make it easier to distribute. Saturday President Ward, Hugh, Gae, Roy, Alice, Kathi, and Glenn handed out the treats as car loads of children drove through the paring lot of the Civic Center. A great time was had by all. Some of the kids had fun too!

Who’s wearing Rotary Bling? Apparently Ward, Alice, Elizabeth, Hugh and Craig are not! $1 fine.

Chad was able to share his appreciation for all of the hard work Rotary has been doing during the pandemic and since he is not a morning person, he expressed his admiration for early meetings as a source of energy and enthusiasm!

Kevin provided information re: Project Connect. Over $500,000.00 has been contributed to the project in Guatemala so far.

Ward announced Placentia has been given the distinction of being Tree City USA and it should tie-in with the city’s project, Urban Forestry Program.

Roy shared the success of the car show on Monday, in the parking lot between Mr. D’s and BofA. He suggested we might be able to provide trophies w/the Rotary Club of Placentia name/logo for $20.00. This could be a very favorable way to promote the club.

The memorial service for Fred Minter is Saturday, March 27 @ 12:00 PM. The information for this virtual service has been provided to all club members.
