As I understand it PDG Hal Darcey gave birth to our annual Rotary Gives Thanks Day as a means for Rotarians state wide to share the blessings we all enjoy and to acknowledge that not all are as fortunate.  In previous years we have collected food donations ala Rice Rally, served food at shelters and made donations to charitable organizations.  Always held on the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving, this years' Rotary Gives Thanks Day will be held on November 21, 2015.  If your club wants to connect with others go to the D5000 Service Help Wanted Blog at
