The Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club is planning to provide a breakfast for the Greenbush YMCA’s “Circle of Champs” kids group next Thursday, July 14.
The portion of the club that usually attends the monthly breakfast meetings hosted at the Y by executive director and club member Shannon Romanowski has volunteered to work the project, but anyone is welcome.
“Our YMCA ‘Circle of Champs’ program provides support and fun activities and programs to children who are fighting a life-threatening illness. We also provide families with memberships to the Y and include the families in all champs activities.
“I am suggesting that [the] breakfast be kept simple as the kids will be leaving on a field trip that day by 9:30 a.m. Perhaps assorted bagels, cream cheese, fruit and muffins would work best as the kids could easily carry it with them if they wish to.”
To that end, Shannon is asking for club members to formally sign up to help shop for the breakfast items and go to the Y the morning of the event to help serve and spend some time with the campers.
Please contact Shannon at 477-2570 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible if you wish to help.
