Color for Kids

Hi Mrs O!!
I am in Cambodia! I LOVE Cambodia!! I have been very busy sharing tons of color in villages and I have been working with a program called Sustainable Cambodia (a Rotary funded program) to take color to their schools. I was able to help with art classes yesterday too. I will tell you more when I get home but I wanted to send you and your club this picture and say thank you for helping me share color with kids across the world.  (Feb. 7, 2018)

Adopt-a-Family

Santa's helpers were very busy yesterday dropping off loads of presents for the family that we adopted through Catholic Charities Community Services of Orange County (CCCSOC). Coats, clothing, boots, toys, pots & pans, a crock pot and a HUGE laundry basket filled with toiletries.... Several, generous gift cards as well. The list was long but fulfilled. A BIG Merry Christmas to all who participated.
