Sharing this season together is the greatest gift of all. And, once again, the members and friends of the Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club have been overwhelmingly generous.
Two carloads of gifts for our two “adopted” families have been delivered to Circles of Mercy headquarters in Rensselaer, the final one this afternoon to wrap up our sixth consecutive year of cooperating with that family aid organization.
Thanks to all who chipped in with gift items and gift cards for the adults and children of the two families, be it from their wish lists or additional ideas you devised. You have assured these needy families of a Christmas much better than what they could have accomplished on their own.
As our friend Richard Zazycki, executive director of Circles of Mercy, put it today: “I’m overwhelmed. You people are truly amazing.”
