More Groveland Rotary Info

Text and Media by Ron Smith

The Groveland Rotary received a Proclamation from the Groveland Community Service District, thanking the Rotary for actions taken ( by Jim Goodrich and members) for the repair of Mary Laveroni park. By putting out the call for donations to start the effort we received from local concerned citizens and by many Rotary clubs from Madera to Lodi and Rotary District 5220 Disaster fund monies to get started. At the time I am writing this article the parks repair is on track to be ready for the 49er Festival. Great News.

c7d2_172172Dave “STILTS” Valponi recently reported a banner year for our Shoes for Needy children in our area. He set a new record for him, collecting over $800 at the 49er Festival and the Coyote Howler in Coulterville in his Uncle Sam costume, stilts and red white and blue bucket. A super great effort on his part.
