Congratulations to Middletown Rotary on winning the Salvation Army Bell Ringing contest again this year.  Captains Angel and Maria Hernandez presented the club with the Bell Trophy on Monday at our weekly meeting.  They shared with our members that the bell ringing in 2010 totaled approximately $50,000 from the community and that the total collected in the kettles in 2011 was more than $103,000.  Even in a tough economy this community is VERY generous.  That generosity was evident in the quantity and quality of toys that were donated for more than 700 children, which included 20 bicycles.  Also, 422 families received a grocery bag with food for a holiday meal.  Thank you to Rotary and the other service clubs who made this a successful holiday season for the Middletown Salvation Army.
