Southeast Rotary helps The Fairbanks
Southeast Rotary teamed up with the Metro Rotary Club and applied for a District Simplified Grant to support the Drew Lewis Foundation's project to install playground equipment at The Fairbanks. The photo shows the check presentation at our club's meeting on Sept. 14 (from left to right: David Miller, a volunteer at The Fairbanks; Amy Blansit, who founded and directs The Fairbanks and the Drew Lewis Foundation in memory of her late husband, Michael Brady president-elect of Metro Rotary Club, and Springfield Southeast President Lori Barnes Miller).
There will be a community work day on Saturday, Sept. 23, to help prepare the playground area as well as a beer tent from White River Brewing Company and a concert in the garden. Members from Southeast, Metro and Rotaract are encouraged to sign up to help, or just come out and enjoy the day.

Set up: 10 - noon (10 people needed)
Playground prep and work: 11 - 2 (5 people needed)
Beer tent: 11:30 - 3; 3 - 6 (3 people needed each shift)
