Rotarians support mobility charity

West Valley Rotarians gathered Feb. 7 at Huntington University in Peoria to hear a talk by the founder of Crutches 4 Africa, a nonprofit charity that collects crutches and other mobility devices and distributes them to those in need in Africa. The program, founded by Rotarian David Talbot and his wife, Candice, is supported by Rotary Clubs throughout the nation.
