TITUSVILLE SUNRISE ROTARY FULFILLS SCHOOL WISH LISTS
Titusville ?After hearing about the continued need for school supplies at local schools, the members of the Titusville Sunrise Rotary Club contacted the Brevard County School Board to see how they could help. The club members were directed to Mims and Pinewood Elementary Schools and received "wish lists" from each of the schools.
Club President Father Richard Pobjecky happily announced that "we were fortunate to be able to fulfill most every request made by the schools." Club members Dawn Kling, Denny Meneghelli, Lisa Mosier, Bob Socks and Dan Wolfe were on hand to deliver the supplies to the schools this past Tuesday. First stop, Pinewood Elementary School; Principal Donna Neill was delighted with the delivery, "Pinewood is absolutely thrilled to receive the generous donation of school supplies from the Sunrise Rotary Club!
These materials will allow our teachers to do their job more effectively as well as ensure our students have the supplies they need to perform well at school. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." The next stop was at Mims Elementary School, where Principal Debra Crannell stated "Mims Elementary staff, students and parents are so appreciative of the school supplies! Thanks to our many local clubs and businesses we are able to provide necessary supplies for students to have a successful year."
