Our Rotary Club is teaming up with other clubs in our District to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  There are many ways you can help, too.  Please consider dropping off an item for collection and delivery directly to the people on the front lines helping those in need.  And, of course, cash donations are always acceptable and will also be channeled directly to those in need via our network of Rotary Clubs serving in the disaster areas.

The ACRC Chicken Drop was a success thanks to the combined efforts of many members of our club.  Doug Dore spent time and energy building and organizing the board. Duanne Hammond took care of the advertising.  Charlie Shields not only donated the ornary rooster and several other chickens to complete the event but also energized the business community to donate prizes to the winners.  There were many winners and the event raised just over $200 for the renovations and additions to the Alton Senior Center. 

 

In addition to all of the fun and entertainment at Old Home Day there was also a parade.  Thanks so much to Dave Countway, Duanne Hammond, David Bloser, and Rick Fogg for helping to put together a spirited float that helped to bring community awareness to the Alton Senior Center.

The ACRC would like to invite all members, families and guests and future members to the River Run Deli on Thursday, August 25th.  The BBQ will held in honor of our new exchange student from Belgium.

The event is outdoors around a campfire from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. There will be appetizers followed by burgers, dogs, chicken & sausage with baked beans, potato, garden and pasta salads with ice cream for dessert.

Volleyball, bocce ball and badminton are some of the events planned. Rumor has it that Quentin is something of a volleyball star in Belgium so try to get on his team if you can!

The cost is $10 per person. Kayakers will also be doing their thing on the river from 3pm to 5pm if you would like to come early and paddle the Merrymeeting.

Please RSVP to our Vice President Doug Dore by clicking his name to the left of our home page and email the number of people in your group.

The River Run Deli is located just south of the Alton Traffic Circle on Route 28.

See you there.
