After explaining the project, bags of bottle caps were distributed to each luncheon table, and Rotarians printed numbers and letters on the caps, according to the provided information sheets. Each table completed the service project, with a minimum of confusion, while club business was being conducted. After completing the project, Rob commented on the excellent relationship between WCU students and Rotary that has existed through the years through service projects and events.
We never corralled Rob for a photo with Kelly, as he was busy showing off his renovated historic house in the back yard to many of the partygoers.
Another fun evening, again generously hosted by Kelly and Rob Feenan!
