Cheryl showed us an indoor window box that allows someone to grow fresh vegetables year round. She suggested it might be a nice service project and that we would fill them with earth and seeds and give to people who might appreciate the fresh food year long. 
 
It was also suggested we might want to schedule a CPR class and we could subsidize the cost for some people such as high school students.
Tom announced that there are currently 17 Rotary Readers. 
Amazing!
