It just seems like yesterday that Anchorage East Rotary was christening the beginning of their newest Signature Community Service Project, the Mobile Food Pantry (MFP).  However, believe it or not, that was over a decade ago; proving that time truly does fly when you are having fun! 
 
Please join in on the fun and excitement celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Mobile Food Pantry on Saturday, August 13th at the Food Bank of Alaska Warehouse located at 2121 Spar Avenue from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm You are encouraged to join us first for our regular distribution at the Fairview Rec Center at 1:30 pm and then head on over to the Food Bank for the party and festivities.  This event is to celebrate the many years the Mobile Food Pantry has been serving the community and to thank all the volunteers that have helped with the distributions over the years.  In addition, since the original MFP truck has entered beer truck heaven, you’ll be able to view the new Rotary Wheel emblazoned food truck that will be taking its place.  The event will include live speakers, volunteer recognition, party favors and plenty of food and beverages catered by Qdoba.  You will not want to miss out on all the fun and be a part of history as we celebrate a great success for helping those in our community that need food assistance.  It is a testament to what being a gift to the world truly means and proof that Rotary Serves Humanity.  Please rsvp to smitchell@foodbankofalaska.org.  I hope to see you there.
 
Your Past President and friend,
Dave
