What Goes Into the Blue Bin?

Recycling 101

What goes into the blue recycling can before you roll it out to the curb?
 
Shannon Brennan Speaking with Marcy Maribusan
 
This question was answered by Shannon Brennan, a member of the Waste Management Public Education & Outreach Team, who was the meeting speaker, introduced by Jim Kelly along with Marcy Maribusan, who works with the City of Arlington in its garbage and recycling services.

Bob Campbell, Club Rotary International Foundation Director, was the featured speaker for Rotary Foundation Month.  He shared some statistics and the scope of projects funded by the RI Foundation and highlighted our club’s Foundation work.

Any donation made by a club member to the RI Foundation in November will be matched by club points, up to $500. Contact Bob Campbell or Cindy Huleatt for assistance.

Halloween 2022

It is a tradition in Oso for JoAnna and Rotarian Paul Abramowicz to have their barn decorated for Halloween for all their neighbors to enjoy.  This year they invited the Rotary club to their barn for its annual Halloween party.  With the Nightmare Before Christmas movie playing in the barn, many appropriate decorations, and, of course, Rotarians and guests in costume, it was a fun evening enjoying a potluck, and many laughs!  Thank you JoAnna and Paul!
