Salvation Army Bell Ringing

Our annual commitment to the Salvation Army is upon us, so the time to sign up is now. We don’t ask for your money, just your time, and it’s very little to devote to such a great organization that does so much for people who have so much less than we do. Do your part and sign up for multiple shifts to be sure we maximize the opportunities to interact with the shopping public and motivate them to donate what they can and often! First ones to sign up get the best selection of shifts.

Need Help?? If you are not computer conversant, choose your day, time, and venue. Let Dean Roberts or Jim Deas know your choices.

Ringing the Bell!

From age 6 to age 90, the Rotary Community pulls together to support the Salvation Army!

Kudos to Bill Grand who got our on-line registration system working; and to Mike Jukofsky for making sure all equipment was out and for interfacing with the Salvation Army.

And, to our fabulous co-chairs Jim Deas and Bob McClune, who made it all happen with their selling, motivating, cajoling, pleading, calling, etc. Jim says Bob should get a year’s worth of make-ups!! Thanks to all who participated.
