The Rockford East/Cherry Valley Rotary Club came up big this past week when they announced that they were awarding K Cancer Baseball with a grant for $2,000.00 to help support local families who are battling childhood cancer!
A quote was read during the Rotary Meeting that stuck out to me. ”
As the quote was stated, I couldn’t help but think about how appropriate it was. The Rotary Club raised money during the year to “give away” to area non-profits as a way of contributing to their work. That $2,000.00 that the Rotarians “gave away” to K Cancer Baseball has meaning!
One thing we learned while we were at the Rockford East/Cherry Valley Rotary Club meeting was that if you think about the gifts you have, and take a moment to look around you, you will find someone who needs your gift. This kind of giving provides real meaning to our lives and we are all better for it.
Thank you Rockford East/Cherry Valley Rotary!
