On November 13th, President Sally Pachulski presented a check for $500 to Mary Peverada, Team Leader for Children's Services at Portland Public Library.
Past President John Henninges had the idea of donating books in lieu of speaker's gifts.  After spending some time trying to decide the best way to implement his project, it was decided gifting the Portland Public Library's Annual Fund would best serve the library and we would be donating books the library wanted and needed.
Our speakers seem genuinely pleased with our bestowing a gift in their honor, the library is happy with the donation and our club feels great about helping the community!
