Meals On Wheels route this week was covered by Harris. Our route currently delivers to 17 people with 15 of them getting two meals (Wednesday and Thursday) and one getting only one for Wednesday and one getting only one for Thursday. This makes the service a little more complicated and challenging for the driver, so we could really use a second volunteer to ride long. If you are interested, please contact Harris.

President harris placed an order for 100 World Atlases for North Fort Myers Academy. he is waiting to hear back from Tice to see if we will be able to actually present the Atlases there if we do decide to do it with them this year.

President Harris suggested that we need to start planning and setting dates for the following three activities:

  • Installation Banquet
