London Bridge Rotary Club helps families in need at Christmas.
For over 20 years, the London Bridge Rotary Club, has been fortunate enough to help Havasu’s local needy families during the holidays, with their Adopt-A-Family Christmas program. The Rotary Club raised $12,000 at the club’s Harley Raffle Event this year, which will fund the 2016 program. A special “Thank You” to all who participated in the Harley Raffle.
The Salvation Army recently provided the club with the names of 19 families and 50 children for Adapt-A-Family. Rotary Club members manage the whole process from start to delivery. Members raise the funds. They shop at Walmart and JC Penney for toys and clothing for all the children. They wrap the presents and deliver them to each family along with gift certificates to Walmart and Safeway, in addition to the Christmas Dinner supplied by the Salvation Army. Pictured here is the beginning of this years’ shopping spree. (12.6.16 @ Walmart)
In 1970, when the London Bridge was dedicated in Lake Havasu City, the London Bridge Rotary Club sold a commemorative coin to memorialize the event. Each year since then, they have introduced a new coin design. It has become a tradition to introduce each new coin at the annual London Bridge Days Parade held each October. The 2016-17 Coin is dedicated to the United States flag - "Stars and Stripes - Old Glory."
