Christmas Decorations

In December seven members, along with a group from Cummins Diesel, visited St Anne’s Hospital in order to decorate several locations on the main floor of the hospital for Christmas. Rotary members returned during January to take down the decorations and pack them for storage. Our work here saves the hospital around $3,000 dollars each year.
