Rotarians Collect Food For Needy
The Rockaway Rotary Club spent Saturday in front of Waldbaum's on Beach 112 Street last Saturday to collect food and other donations for needy Rockaway families. Six loads of donated non-perishables, oranges and baked goods were delivered to a number of local venues. Helping the Rotary members in the collection were the Girl Scouts and other community volunteers. "The collection was a real joy," said club president Nancy Hanson. "Many people handed us full bags of groceries and most were extremely generous with their donations."
