Byesville Rotarians kicked off their Christmas season with a club Christmas breakfast. Members donated toys to the Meadowbrook Angel Tree service project. These gifts will be used by Interact clubs at both Mid East Buffalo Campus and Meadowbrook to ensure all students with names on the Angel Tree will have gifts for Christmas.
On Saturday, December 21, the club will host their rescheduled “Christmas with Santa” pancake breakfast. Santa will be at the breakfast to pose for pictures with the kids attending. Breakfast cost is $5 and will be served 8:30-11:00am at the Stop Nine Senior Center in Byesville. Breakfast for children under five is free with purchase of an adult breakfast. Pictures with Santa are complementary with purchase of breakfast
Also, on Saturday 21, club members not working at “Breakfast with Santa” will be distributing Xmas food baskets to families who have preregistered for a basket. This year the club will be providing almost 200 families with food baskets. The club finances this project with donations from the community and a grant from Rotary International.
After these projects are concluded, club members will take a rest until the new year when they will begin working on their scholarship service project and planning “Breakfast with the Easter Bunny.”
Dick Brixner from the Cambridge Rotary club attended the Byesville Club Christmas breakfast to present Melinda Yerian with a Paul Harris award. The award was raffled off at the Cambridge 100th Anniversary celebration. Melinda Yerian, a Byesville Rotary club member, was the lucky winner
The Paul Harris pin indicates that the person wearing it has donated or had a donation made in his or her name of $1000 to the Paul Harris Foundation. Money from this foundation is used to finance service project around the world. These projects range from Rotary’s international project to eliminate polio to helping local clubs like Byesville provide food baskets to local families. Congratulations to Melinda.
