CFB Rotary set a new Valentine's Day sale record for West Haven and Blessed Assurance children's homes! We are very excited to announce that Rotarian Gary Embrey of Shamrock Precision generously donated $1,000 today, and since the Rotary meeting and Valentine's Day sale were cancelled due to the icy weather, Regina and Gary took the Valentine's Day party to Shamrock's break room with goody bags and small gifts for all 50 employees.
 
Valentine's Day is this Sunday, February 14, which means this week we will hold our annual Valentine's Day Sale for the two disabled children's homes in Jamaica. ALL proceeds will be sent directly to the homes to support these wonderful kids. Last year we raised $1,000 and $800 the year before. 
 
During our lunchtime meeting on Thursday, December 10, CFB Rotary Club members hand-signed Christmas cards to hundreds of service men and women, extending seasons greetings and thanking them for their service. We appreciate all those who serve our country and put their own lives at risk for the rest of us. To each of them, CFB Rotary says, "Dear Hero, thank you for your service!"
 
The Carrollton-Farmers Branch Rotary Club recently provided funding to the Rotary Club of Montego Bay, Jamaica, to install a water tank at Salt Spring Primary and Infant School.
