Founders Day- May 6th

The Rotary Club is looking for Gemini volunteers to work the beer tent and sell raffle tickets at Founders Day. For the past several years, Rotary has sponsored our Accelerated Reading (AR) program, which benefits all of our children. The annual fee for this program is about $4,000 a year. Let's help show Rotary our support by volunteering on Founder's Day.

Thank you as always,
