On May 15th, the club assembled with recipients of local allocation grants for 2018.
This year, we managed a budget of $50,000 and were able to make awards to 25 schools and non-profit organizations.  Our job was extra challenging this year as we had requests for more than $120,000 from 39 non-profits. We were joined by representatives from almost all of the successful recipients.
