Back To School Fair
 
The Rotary Club of East Providence/Seekonk is a proud sponsor of the Back to School Fair which is organized for East Providence elementary students and brought to you by BridgePointe Christian Church.  This year, more than 2,000 people attended with over 150 volunteers.  In addition to giving each student who came through the doors a backpack (that they got to pick), they were given all the school supplies they needed because their homeroom teachers were asked to give their list to the church who then went out and made sure they had enough for everyone.  There was available a pancake breakfast, eye examines, haircuts, dental checks as well as mini golf, bouncy houses and face painting.  Our Rotary Club is proud to be apart of this amazing program.
