Rotary club has busy December:

December was a busy month for the Rotary Club of San Antonio as members worked to bring Christmas cheer to children in the community. On Dec. 9, members joined other Rotarians to pack food bags to be distributed by local schools for students during the Christmas break. The 50 food bags packed by club members were earmarked for San Antonio Elementary School and Irvin Education Center. Rotarians volunteered to ring the Salvation Army bell in front of the San Antonio Post Office from Dec. 11 to 15. Two community service events were held Dec. 16. Club members, along with family members, sorted and distributed socks, underwear and toothbrushes to parents attending the Toys for Tots event in Wesley Chapel. In Dade City, girls in the mentoring group sponsored by the club and Farmworkers Self Help shopped for Christmas gifts for family and friends (and themselves). The girls, called Las Mariposas (the butterflies), earned points by attending group meetings, reading books, attending dance classes and performances, and doing service projects during the year. The points can be used to purchase items on June and December shopping days. Shopping day items are donated by club members, local church groups and friends of Farmworkers Self Help. To show their appreciation, the girls sang Christmas songs during the club’s meeting Dec. 19, and each girl received a gift bag from club member Ginny Clemmons. Shown are volunteers helping at the Toys for Tots event. From left are: Sarah Christiansen, club member; Winnie Burke, club president; Bob Loring, honorary club member, and Hannah Schuck.

Eco-friendly art event:

Approximately 5,000 attended the third annual Pasco Upcycle and Art Festival held in downtown New Port Richey’s Sims Park. Families strolled through the park and visited the 100 or so vendors that amazed the crowd with creativity: designing wall art pallets, driftwood frames, glass bottle clocks and dozens of other uniquely-upcycled items. A traditional art component was added to this year’s festival, giving local painters an opportunity to showcase their talents. We have worked hard to keep an eco-friendly, grass-roots vibe for the event, said Kristen King, Keep Pasco Beautiful coordinator. It’s wonderful to see so many environmentally-conscious people in one place.
