Edmond Rotary Club organized and is sponsoring a Rotaract Club at University of Central Oklahoma and Oklahoma Christian University. Although fledgling, it is doing great service. Students made and distributed gift bags and served dessert, compliments of Millie’s Table, to St. Anne’s Retirement Center. Also, they spent time making decorations with the residents for ‘Bingo Night’ and participated in the games. Fifteen students participated, and the sponsorship is handled by Rotarian Chris Koehler.

Edmond Rotarians read to Ida Freeman Elementary School students recently for “Read Across America,” which highlights the books of Dr. Seuss. Edmond Rotary Club ‘adopted’ the school more than a decade ago, and commits to read to every class weekly if not every week. The Seuss day fit right into their mission. Keith Kersten has read regularly for a decade to Nichols fifth-graders. Carol Hartzog, complete with a ‘Cat in the Hat’ hat has read to the school’s first graders for 17 years.
