St. Anne's Food Distribution
In lieu of our regular lunch meeting on Monday, September 16th, we will be continuing our partnership with St. Anne's Human Services. On the third Monday of each month the food pantry clients receive frozen meats and canned goods. The distribution requires volunteers to package the food in the church basement and move it upstairs to the parking lot where it will be picked up by food pantry clients. This month our club will assist in this effort from 9am-noon. While some tasks require lifting heavy grocery bags and carrying them upstairs, there are also tasks that are less physically demanding. As of now, most of the volunteer needs are filled, but we may decide to participate again as a club during an upcoming month. Also, St. Anne's is always looking for extra hands, so anyone interested can share their time next month even though the club is not planning to volunteer as a group.

Art Dobson speaks about "Revisit Korea"
Fellow Shrewsbury Rotarian and Korean War Veteran, Art Dobson, shared stories from his trip of a lifetime visiting South Korea. His visit was part of a special trip organized by the Republic of Korea through a program called Revisit Korea.  Art was impressed with the activities and level of hospitality organized by his hosts and he described the event as "a once in a lifetime experience."
Since 1975, Revisit Korea has generously subsidized travel costs for tens of thousands of Korean War Veterans and their families.  In sincere appreciation for all veterans who fought and sacrificed in securing freedom and democracy for the Republic of Korea, veterans and their families are provided with free hotel accommodations, bus tours of Seoul, Inchon and the DMZ, and all meals while in Korea.
