2018 Layette Project

The Mason City Noon Rotary Club launched our 2018 Layette Project to raise $5,500 for 100 layettes for mothers and their newborn babies in Nicaragua.  Each layette costs about $55.00.

The Sunrise Rotary Club is partnering with us to help with this International Service Project.  Currently, $6,004 has been raised for the project!  With your help last week, we exceeded are fund-raising goal!

Thank you to all who contributed to this year’s layette project with a donation and to all who helped assemble the 100 layettes on Aug. 28th!  These layettes will be distributed to mothers for their newborns in Chinandega, Nicaragua later this year.

Mark your calendars for Earth Day 2017 will be celebrated on Saturday April 22. Announcement reminders will be made at the noon meetings in the following weeks.

As in years past, our part of the world will be 12th Street NW between Taft and Pierce. We’ll plan to meet up in the Curries parking lot at 9:00 AM. The City of Mason City will provide a clean-up kit which includes bags, gloves, and safety vests.

Be advised to watch the weather and wear suitable footwear and outerwear since the event takes place rain or shine.

Let’s plan on another great turnout this year. Gratitude goes out to all members that have helped in the past and as the old saying goes, ”many hands make light work”.


Yours in Rotary Service,
