A donation was collected at the end of 2013 for The King's Daughters Child Development Center for them to use as they saw best.  This is the response we received as a result of your generous giving.
 
This past week the Rotary club delivered two donations to the center and we were so very grateful.  Today, one of our single moms with two young children who also happens to be on staff at the center, found herself in a domestic abuse situation.  We called every shelter in town but there was "no room in the inn" so to say in any of them!  We began to think of plan "B" and how we could provide a safe shelter for this family and to see how much $$ we could raise among the staff to help.  Low and behold - I remembered the Rotary gift!  This gift is at this moment providing 11 days of stay at an extended stay hotel.  I was able to also purchase a little food to stock the room with. We took our little tree from the front office at the center and set it up in the room.  While this young mom does have family in town none of them were encouraging her to flee her situation - telling her it was Christmas and perhaps things would work out.....and that they would take her in IF things escalated again but to give it one more try (oh my).  While of course we have no way of knowing how all this will play  out what I do know is that due to your generosity, a mom and her two children are safe, warm and safe on this Christmas Eve - Thank You for caring for us and blessing us in this way!

The end of the year has been a busy month for MG Rotary.  We've handed out dictionaries to all 3rd graders at Neely's Bend, Chadwell, Goodlettsville, and Old Center Elementary.  Thanks to fundraising efforts such as the Pancake Breakfast, we are able to offer programs such as this to our kids in the community.
 

 
Our 1st Annual Pancake Breakfast was a huge success.  Thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers who were key to making this event a success. 
 

 
 
The Madison Goodlettsville Rotary Club was chartered on April 10, 1957 with 22 members--We have 21 today (and counting!).  Rotary was founded in 1905 in Chicago as a way for business men to fellowship and combine their humanitarian efforts--It is now one of the largest service organizations in the world (with nearly 1 1/2 million members worldwide)!

Each year Rotary International has projects to feed the hungry, fight disease, assist the handicapped and the elderly, give service to youth, combat illiteracy, fund scholarships and provide relief to disaster victims.  Each year over 35 million dollars are awarded in annual scholarships and charitable grants for projects like better drinking water and agriculture training.

The Madison Goodlettsville Rotary Club provides scholarships to deserving high school seniors in the Madison/Goodlettsville area, gives assistance to the King's Daughters School, provides dictionaries to 3rd graders each year, supports local citizens and projects when asked among other things.

We would love to have you join us for lunch on Tuesday at Ryan's buffet in Rivergate.  Please contact Jill Howard at 769-5008 for more details.
 
 
 
We always welcome our fellow Rotarians for lunch.  The cost is only $10.00 per person for a buffet style meal.
