Every year our club selects a project to help a worthy organization in the community.  This year, after a very rigorous selection process, the Project Committee chaired by Emily Stratton, selected El Sistema, an after school music education program for disadvantaged students from 3rd to 9th grades, as the recipient of Our Annual Project.  We are raising funds to purchase a van to help transport the El Sistema Students to performances.  Our goal is to raise $80,000 which will purchase the van, plus provide funds for some very important club Projects – Junior Rotarian scholarships, dictionaries for third graders and International and domestic grant projects.  All of these activities make a difference in people’s lives and we need everyone’s help Pledge and Pay
