Avon Rotarians deliver apples


Hendricks County Flyer

---- — The Avon Rotary Club’s 20-plus year tradition of delivering an apple to every educator responsible for educating children in Avon continued this mont when teams of Rotarians delivered 1,050 apples around the school district.

Teachers, administrators, office staff, food service employees, and custodians in all of the 12 Avon Community School Corporation buildings, Kingsway Christian School, and Our Shepherd Lutheran School received a personal thank you and an apple in appreciation for their commitment to Avon children.

Rotary event organizer Joe Dugan said the event is “… the most important and gratifying project we do.”

In turn, educators respond by sending e-mailed and verbal comments that express appreciation for Rotary’s sincere gesture of support.

Darrell Grimes, an Avon Rotarian and manager of Walmart in Avon, assisted the club by providing apples at a discounted rate.
