Beautiful sunshine beamed down on Sunday, August 30, as the members of recently commissioned Rotary E-ClubNEO completed their first service project.  The members gathered  at the Rotary Camp for Children with Special Needs on scenic Rex Lake in Summit County.   With masks on and plenty of room to social-distance in the spacious picnic pavilion at the Camp, the E-Club members set about packing shoeboxes for the "Children of the Dump" in Chinandega, Nicaragua.
The eight members of the club loaded 15 boxes with clothing, footwear, bath and hygiene supplies, along with school supplies plus some toys and games.  It took some creative packing skills and a lot of coaching from some members who have packed the shoeboxes before, but everything fit and is now on its way to the new owners.
Once the boxes were finished, everyone broke out their picnic lunches and the group had a chance to chat, enjoy the lakefront scenery, talk Rotary, kick around ideas for the next service project and just get to know each other.  For some of the members, this was the first time they had met in person!  Another great day to be a Rotarian!!
