The inside scoop! In case of emergency, who ya gonna call?

Barbara Barr

In case of emergency, there’s Rotary and ShelterBox. The two organizations partner to provide emergency shelters in devastated communities. Rotary and ShelterBox have been there for each catastrophe as nature or mankind delivers a cruel punch. From hurricanes in the United States and other countries, to typhoons, earthquakes and tragedies around the world, Rotary and ShelterBox are there with emergency shelter.

On Thursday, March 21 Don Jorgensen of ShelterBox will present the program at the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke at the SaddleBrooke Clubhouse. Members of the club always enjoy Don’s inside stories on what really happened during these historical disasters. Guests and visiting Rotarians are welcome to join us to get the inside scoop!

If you’d like to join us for lunch, there are three outstanding meal options ranging from $7 to $11. We start ordering lunch about 11:15 a.m., have a quick Rotary meeting and enjoy the program by about 12:20 p.m. or so. But the best part is all the friendly people you’ll meet!

The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke is not only an award-winning organization devoted to make a difference locally and globally, but it is also a club that enjoys coming together for life-long learning. We meet weekly for lunch with friends and an excellent program of learning. If this sounds like something of interest to you, come visit our friendly club and learn more about Rotary.
