District 6900 Grant – Backpacks for The Calvary Children’s Home
-Thanks to a grant from Rotary District 6900, every child at the Calvary Children’s Home in Acworth picked out their own backpack this school year. Giving the children something they need, in a style they want, is just a small piece in giving this school year a great start. It helps children feel a sense of ownership and excitement for the school year.
Coupled with the school supply drive, our hope is to get the children all they need to do their best this academic year!
The CART Fund
Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust Program
Past President Bill Keappler leads Smyrna Rotary Club’s efforts to raise funds for the Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust (CART) Program. We have blue CART buckets on each table at each meeting. At most meetings, Bill reminds Smyrna Rotarians to contribute.
The results? Bill notes modestly “We have collected $4,000 for CART this Rotary Year.” Many of the funds were raised to honor our dearly departed member, Harold Wolfe, his wife, and our dear former member Johnny Wilson.
