In addition to collecting supplies and funds to support the Northeast Guidance Center's Back To School program, several Rotarians volunteered their time to help setup for the big day.
Sharon K. Common, the Fund Development Officer, writes, "Thank you so much for helping set up our Back-to-School event on Saturday, August 26, at Harper Woods High School. Attendance was terrific and the kids had lots of fun playing games and riding in the little train! The NEGC kids are going to be well prepared for school this year with their supplies and backpacks. On behalf of the children, thank you for supporting NEGC by collecting the school supplies, purchasing backpacks and volunteering to set up the event. A special Thank You to Philip MacKethan for chairing the backpack project and Diane Strickler for helping to recruit volunteers."
