Rochester Rotary held holiday party for local need
Rochester Rotary hosted holiday party for children and
families in need at St. Andrew Catholic Church in Rochester on Dec. 19. Working
with the Rochester Area Neighborhood House, Rotary members arranged games,
crafts and refreshments for 54 children during the holiday season.
Each child received more than one gift and also took home
candy and stuffed animals. Santa paid a visit and heard the wishes of many of
the children in attendance. Interact students, the student arm of Rotary, from
Rochester High School and Stoney Creek High School spent an afternoon at the
