“What big eyes you have” said Red Riding Hood to the wolf. “The better to see you my dear at Once Upon a Time…Exploring the World of Fairy Tales.” It’s a new exhibit opening at the Building for Kids Children’s Museum on June 18th. And you and your favorite child will have the whole museum to yourselves with other Rotarians on Monday, June 20th from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Explore the museum and try the hands-on exhibits. Spin thread into gold and make “fairy dust” in the DaVinci Studio of Art and Science. And satisfy your hunger with yummy food prepared by the Family of Rotary Committee. If you don’t have any kids to bring with you, come anyway to check out the museum and enjoy the company and conversation of other Rotarians. There will be a sign up sheet starting next week at the meeting so we’re sure to have enough food for everyone. It’s an event not to be missed! (And there is no charge.)

On Tuesday May 24th we will have a drive for goods for Goodwill. So start to clean those closets for things you no longer wear or need. It will be a “Team” competition as to which team will donate the most items for a great cause. Make-ups will be given to the winning team members. Goodwill is very supportive of SAMP and this is a small way to pay them back for all that they do for Rotary. Please count all of your items and turn in a slip of paper with your name, number of goods and which Team you are on. A truck from Goodwill will be present to pick up all of the items. The truck will be located on the east side of the Paper Valley Hotel (across from the parking ramp on Superior Street)—you can drive up and unload. There will also be people there to help.
